To kick off 2021, Warner Bros. Animation is sending Batman back to the ’70s in a new animated film, Batman: Soul of the Dragon. David Giuntoli (Grimm) stars as Bruce Wayne/Batman, and Bruce will find himself in a globe trotting martial arts adventure. Bruce will also join forces with Ben Turner/Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White), Richard Dragon (Mark Dacascos), and Lady Shiva (Kelly Hu) as they face the terrorist cult known as Kobra.
The only thing linking Batman to the world’s greatest martial artists is that they all trained under O-Sensei. In a new preview clip from the movie, Bruce arrives at O-Sensei’s remote temple. However, the future Batman isn’t very patient at this point in his life.
