‘Arrow’ Star Debuts as Valiant’s ‘Ninjak’ in First Live-Action Photo
The world is never lacking for new comic heroes to enter live-action, and we can finally cross Ninjak off the list. Valiant Comics’ stealthiest hero will star in his own digital series led by Arrow alum Michael Rowe, the first photos and details of which have arrived before New York Comic-Con.
The upcoming feature-length digital series represents “Ninjak’s brutal live-action debut as he goes head-to-head with a top-secret roster of Valiant’s most iconic heroes for a bloodstained battle royale.” In addition to Michael Rowe in the title role, the cast includes Kevin Porter (Dodgeball), Ciera Foster (Straight Outta Compton), Jason David Frank (Power Rangers), John Morrison (Lucha Underground), Derek Theler (Baby Daddy), and Chantelle Barry (Entourage).

Additional details will emerge October 8 at New York Comic-Con’s Valiant X Bat In The Sun: Top-Secret Project Panel, while Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani says:
We’ve been quietly working behind the scenes on this series since 2015 and are incredibly excited to be debuting the first look at footage this year at New York Comic Con. We’ve set out to make the best and most ambitious series ever produced in the digital space – one that will live up to the high standards we’ve set in publishing. As Valiant gears up for an upcoming slate of film, television and video game releases, we felt the timing was right to begin to produce live-action digital content that would both give ours fans an experience truly worthy of the Valiant Universe, while also introducing new fans to the Valiant characters in the same way the animated television shows of the 1980s and 1990s did for comics in years past. Get ready to lose your mind – seeing Ninjak in action for the first time in nothing short of incredible.
Stay tuned for possible footage from the panel, and take in all the Ninjak you can above.
