First Trailer for The Dark Knight Returns

DC animated films will get a brand new film in its catalog with an adaptation of Frank Miller's  Batman: The Dark Knight Returns with "Part I" getting released on September 25th on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download.

I'm super excited about this film because its based on maybe the greatest Batman story to date and it will have Robocop himself Peter Weller as the aging Bruce Wayne/Batman. Also, the great Bruce Timm is producing this and that means it will be great and true to source material. The greatest part of film is, expect 2 parts to this truly epic story. That is the best move possible for a story this grand.

Here is official synopsis:’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. 

Here is trailer and box art for Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. Oh and expected Part II in early 2013.
