With the release of the first two photo-covers from Valiant promoting the upcoming live-action Ninjak vs The Valiant Universe serial (that I wrote about last October), more details of the show's casting have also been revealed.
Michael Rowe (The CW’s Arrow and The Flash) stars as Colin King aka Ninjak; Jason David Frank (Power Rangers) is Bloodshot; John Morrison (WWE, El Rey’s Lucha Underground) is the Eternal Warrior (pictured above); Chantelle Barry (90210, Entourage) is Roku; Kevin Porter (Dodgeball) is Armstrong; Ciera Foster (Two and a Half Men) is Livewire, and Derek Theler (Freeform’s Baby Daddy) is X-O Manowar.
As more names - and photo-covers - are announced I'll endeavour to bring them to your attention.
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…Directed by Aaron & Sean Schoenke of Bat in the Sun Productions – the creators of YouTube's sensation Super Power Beat Down – and written by Aaron Schoenke, Sean Schoenke, and Joe Harris, Ninjak vs The Valiant Universe is a six-episode series, pitting Ninjak, against a "gauntlet of Valiant’s most formidable heroes for a bloodstained battle royale torn from the pages of the largest independent superhero universe in comics".
Due to premier later this year, the series is the first project from Valiant Digital, a new division of Valiant Entertainment that will be producing original live-action and animated content.
