The Dark Knight Returns Trailer

Here’s the trailer for The Dark Knight Returns, an upcoming two-part animated movie based on Frank Miller’s critically acclaimed Batman mini-series. The first part hits on September 25, 2012 (my birthday!) and the second will be released in early 2013. Voice talent include Peter Weller as Batman, Ariel Winter as Carrie Kelley/Robin, and David Selby as Jim Gordon.

Considering that the Batman franchise is riding high off of the release of The Dark Knight Rises, DC’s animated features are generally great, and the movie is based off of one of the most revered Batman tales of all time, this should be a “can’t miss” movie for DC, right? Then again, Miller’s art style is so distinct that some people are bound to dislike an animated interpretation of it. Additionally, a ton is riding on the voice actors delivering top-notch performances of words and scenes that have been playing in comic-book fanboys’ heads since The Dark Knight Returns was released in 1986. Perhaps it’s not a sure thing that this animated film will deliver.

Kindly check out the trailer and let me know what you think. Will The Dark Knight Returns be the next great DC animated movie?

  1. I read this for the first time earlier this year, so It’ll be nice to have an animated take on it. I wasn’t fond of the graphic novel, since I found it difficult to follow without asking five questions every three pages.

    Speaking of Batman, I’ve found some similar plot holes in Arkham City, but I haven’t played the last DLC yet, so my answers may be there. Still, the game kind of peters out (story-wise) right at about the Mr. Freeze boss fight. Did the sequence of events that followed leave anybody else scratching their heads as well?


  2. It’s kinda weird to hear robocop coming out of batman. I cant wait for it come out. This is one of my favorite batman graphic novels. First one i ever read too, when i was 9.
