Amazon UK is listing the film Batman Ninja for home release on on Blu-ray Steelbook, DVD, and Blu-ray/Digital on May 14 (a week after its American release). Before that, it will be available for streaming on Amazon Video from April 24.
Warner Bros. describes the story:
Batman Ninja takes a journey across the ages as Gorilla Grodd's time displacement machine transports many of Batman's worst enemies to feudal Japan - along with the Dark Knight and a few of his allies. The villains take over the forms of the feudal lords that rule the divided land, with the Joker taking the lead among the warring factions. As his traditional high-tech weaponry is exhausted almost immediately, Batman must rely on his intellect and his allies - including Catwoman and the extended Bat-family - to restore order to the land, and return to present-day Gotham City.
The Japanese cast features:
- Kouichi Yamadera as Batman
- Wataru Takagi as Joker
- Ai Kakuma as Catwoman
- Rie Kugimiya as Harley Quinn
