[NYCC’16] Ninjak takes on the Valiant Universe in live action series
As teased last week, Valiant Entertainment has teamed with Bat in the Sun Productions to bring a six episode live action adaptation of its Ninjak character to life.
Colin King is Ninjak, MI-6’s deadliest intelligence operative and weapons expert. When the ruthless assassin Roku exploits his greatest weakness, Ninjak will be forced to betray his closest allies. Now, on the run, he must face off against the most powerful heroes known to man for a high-octane, take-no-prisoners trial by fire more perilous and more unpredictable than any he’s faced before. In 2017, the world’s most dangerous super-spy goes to war with the Valiant Universe…
“With major projects in film, television, and gaming already well underway, VALIANT DIGITAL is the next strategic evolution of Valiant’s long-term plan to expand the ranks of its already sizable fanbase around the world,” said Valiant Chief Operating Officer Gavin Cuneo. “In years past, it wasn’t uncommon for comic book publishers to prime new fans by expanding into Saturday morning animation or short-form programming. Today, that demographic has largely migrated online. With the launch of VALIANT DIGITAL and, soon, NINJAK VS. THE VALIANT UNIVERSE, Valiant will become the first major comic book publisher to create original, short-form content for the digital arena – and, with it, introduce our characters to one of the most engaged and passionate communities anywhere.”
Bat in the Sun Productions has done a lot of live action fight videos featuring comic book and pop culture characters. Some have been really great. Some have received C&D letters from lawyers and have been taken down. Still, knowing the quality work they put into their videos, Ninjak vs. The Valiant Universe should be really great.
