There is an honest to goodness Batman, Justice League manga

The runaway box office success of Wonder Woman has redeemed DC in the eyes of fans and the rest of the world. It has also seemed to have emboldened the comics giant to strike out new partnerships and collaborations across the world in an attempt to capitalize on that success.
