Bruce Wayne Goes Back To the ’70s In Batman: Soul of the Dragon Trailer

Next year, director Sam Liu is sending Batman back in time to the ’70s in a new animated film, Batman: Soul of the Dragon. The story finds Bruce Wayne/Batman (David Giuntoli) drawn into a conspiracy alongside his former martial arts associates. Michael Jai White also stars in the movie as Ben Turner/Bronze Tiger, with Mark Dacascos as Richard Dragon, and Kelly Hu as Lady Shiva.

IGN has debuted the first trailer for Batman: Soul of the Dragon, which shows Bruce and Richard as they reunite in the ’70s. Flashbacks also reveal how Bruce first encountered Richard, Ben, and Shiva under the tutelage of O-Sensei. Apparently, there’s also a connection to the past that forces the four of them to come back together. The trailer also appears to establish Kobra, and his international terrorist cult, as the primary threat.
