Batman has not been seen for ten years. A new breed of criminal ravages Gotham City, forcing 55-year-old Bruce Wayne back into the cape and cowl. But, does he still have what it takes to fight crime in a new era?
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1, the next entry in the popular ongoing series of DC Universe Animated Original Movies, is produced by Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation. The all-new, PG-13 rated film arrives September 25, 2012 from Warner Home Video as a Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD, On Demand and for download. The Blu-ray™ Combo Pack will include UltraViolet™.
This, of course, implies that there’s going to be a Part 2 – meaning that we’re in for one heck of an epic story arc, and they’re going to take their time and tell the entire story.
In this one, the surprise casting choice is Peter Weller as the title character. We can hardly wait to see what Weller does with the role. “Buckaroo Batman”.
