MI5 MAKES MY 2018: Ninjak vs The Valiant Universe

Sure, a lot has been written about upcoming movies like The Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther and Aquaman, but nowhere near enough is being written about what I'm betting will be one of the biggest hits of the year; the live-action series from Bat in the Sun ProductionsNinjak vs The Valiant Universe.

Just look at this variant cover to the January #1 comic of the same name! The detail the team have gone to in bringing Valiant's top icons to life gives me chills.

Ciera Foster as Livewire looks fiercer than any blockbuster Storm seen so far, TV's Deadshot, Michael Rowe brings Joe Quesada's Ninjak creation lethally to life, and wrestler, John Hennigan - as my man, The Eternal Warrior - looks ready to rumble, scarred face and all!

While the team have made the X-O Manowar blue and gold battle armour look camera-friendly (a challenge even the X-Men films shied away from), other preview art also shows Derek Theler as Aric in his barbarian style gears, still with the weapon that will redefine 'power sword' (sorry He-Man)!

With Kevin Porter as Armstrong, Jason David Frank as Bloodshot, Alex Megli as Archer, Chantelle Barry as Roku and more, there still lies plenty of room for a sequel, with Quantum and Woody, Rai, and Punk Mambo, along with Faith, Torque and the rest of the Harbingers - you know, should the MI5's best ninja-weapon live...

Can't wait, but want a taste of Bat In The Sun goodness? Check out Ninjak vs TVU director, Aaron Schoenke as The Joker taking on The Walking Dead's Neegan, in this live-action beat down. It's one of the best Clown Prince of Crime's out there - and that's saying something!

 What do you think? 


  1. Yeah I saw the trailer for this, and it looks really, really good. Good for Valiant man. Watched that Joker/Negan fight too. Loved it, even though I figured Joker has that one in the bag.

  2. I'll say - I think it is extremely smart that you create live action for viral sharing online. It's the next-gen movie theatre, and Valiant will be the first.

    I'm looking forward to finding out why Ninjak would take on everyone. Given the title, you'd expect the lead character to be Bloodshot.

  3. Right? I wonder if Toyo Hamada will be revealed behind everything.
