New ‘Ninjak vs The Valiant Universe’ Series Kicks off Valiant Digital Slate
‘Ninjak vs. The Valiant Universe’ was officially announced during the Valiant New York Comic-Con panel, which included a first look at footage from the series.
“Ninjak vs. the Valiant Universe” will be the very first project from Valiant Digital, which will produce original content in live-action and animation, as well as media created for the digital arena.
Directed by “Bat in the Sun’s” Aaron and Sean Schoenke, the digital series will consist of six episodes, which will debut online in late 2017.
The cast features Michael Rowe as Ninjak, Jason David Frank as Bloodshot, John Morrison as the Eternal Warrior, Chantelle Barry as Roku, Kevin Porter as Armstrong, Ciera Foster as Livewire and Derek Theler as X-O Manowar. More members will be announced in the near future.
The synopsis for “Ninjak vs. the Valiant Universe” reads 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.
Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani added: “We’ve been quietly working over the last year to build a series of a scale and ambition that has never before been attempted in the digital space.”
Shamdasani further added: “NINJAK VS. THE VALIANT UNIVERSE is a showcase for the incredible characters and storytelling that Valiant has exhibited from its inception. We are incredibly excited to finally be sharing the first project from VALIANT DIGITAL with the Valiant fanbase, the comic book faithful and a whole new legion of fans who consume pop culture in the digital arena, but have yet to purchase their first Valiant comic.
“We’re bringing the same passion and intensity that helped us produce some of the best comics in the business and coupling that with an incredible, first-class team of filmmakers to create an experience that must be seen to be believed,” said Shamdasani.
