There is little doubt that people are already hyped up for The Batman. This is especially true for Japanese audiences who will have the honor of watching the dubbed version featuring some of the best anime voice actors. For instance, Bruce Wayne and Catwoman will be voiced by two amazing JoJo's Bizarre Adventure stars!
The official DC Japan Twitter account shared the new teaser for The Batman announcing the Japanese dub actors. The post confirms that Takahiro Sakurai and Fairouz Ai will provide the voices of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle aka Catwoman. Take a look at the awesome promo below.
Takahiro Sakurai is known for playing Rohan Kishibe in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable. His most recent role has been in Jujutsu Kaisen where played Geto Suguru. Sakurai is expected to return as Geto in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2.
Fairouz Ai played Jolyne Cujoh in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean. She is also set to reprise the role in the second part of the anime.
Interestingly, Sakurai will be reunited with another voice actor that he had worked with in a different anime. Akira Ishida, who previously played Akaza in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie - Mugen Train, has been cast as The Riddler. Sakurai portrayed Giyu Tomioka in the first season of Demon Slayer and although they don't have scenes together, it would be awesome to imagine Akaza and Giyu together in The Batman.
The rest of the Japanese dub cast are Akio Kaneda, Masaki Aizawa, Shinpachi Tsuji, Chiba Satoshi, and Morikubo Shotaro. It's certainly an amazing list of voice actors and there is little doubt that The Batman will be even more amazing to watch with their performance.
The Batman will premiere in Japan on March 11, 2022. The film hits US theaters earlier on March 4, 2022.
