As we near the end of 2020, Warner Bros. is amping up their DC animated movies for the new year starting with Batman: Soul of the Dragon. The movie which on the surface looks like a homage to 70s kung fu films while does take inspiration with this, but also the comic book runs of Denny O’Neill on Batman and Richard Dragon: Kung Fu Fighter.
But hey when you have Black Dynamite himself, Michael Jai White reprising his role as Ben Turner (who he played on Arrow), I get that. But really as you can see in the trailer the true scene-stealer is Lady Shiva (Kelly Hu reprising the role she originally portrayed in Batman: Arkham Origins). Add Mark Dacascos as Richard Dragon and James Hong as O-Sensei. Yeah… I’m already buying this movie the first chance I get.
Here’s the trailer (courtesy of IGN):
Batman: Soul of the Dragon will be released digitally on January 12th and on Blu-Ray/DVD and combo packs on January 26th.
