Warner Bros. Animation has released the first trailer for their latest DC Universe animated flick The Dark Knight Returns Part 1! This flick is based on Frank Miller's incredible graphic novel, and it awesomely features the voice of Peter Weller as the caped crusader!
Here's the synopsis:...it’s been a decade since Bruce Wayne hung up his cape, following most of the other superheroes who had been forced into retirement.
Facing the downside of middle age, a restless Bruce Wayne pacifies his frustration with race cars and liquor – but the bat still beckons as he watches his city fall prey to gangs of barbaric criminals known as The Mutants.
The return of Harvey Dent as Two-Face finally prompts Wayne to once again don the Dark Knight’s cowl, and his dramatic capture of the villain returns him to crime-fighting – simultaneously making him the target of law enforcement and the new hope for a desolate Gotham City.
Particularly inspired is a teenage girl named Carrie, who adopts the persona of Robin and ultimately saves Batman from a brutal attack by the Mutant leader.
Armed with a new sidekick, and re-energized with a definitive purpose, the Dark Knight returns to protect Gotham from foes new...and old.
The flick also features the voices of David Selby as Commissioner Gordon, Ariel Winter as Robin, Wade Williams as Two-Face, and Michael McKean as Dr. Bartholomew Wolper.
It was directed by Jay Oliva, from a script written by Bob Goodman.
Of course, Bruce Timm produced the films.
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 will be released on Blu-ray and DVD and download on September 25th, 2012 from Warner Home Video.
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2 will be released in early 2013.
