September 25 is sooner than you know it.
If you are banned from the theater due to your obsessed-like love for Christopher Nolan then relax, this DVD will take off some of your bat-tweaks. The next entry in the growing DC Universe Animated Original Movies catalog, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1, arrives just in time for you to enjoy Gotham’s Dark Knight. The all-new, PG-13 rated film adapts Frank Miller‘s 1986 contribution to the Batman mythos, and in a first-look at a clip from the movie, you’ll understand why they had to split it into two parts.
Bruce Timm has remained seriously involved with The Dark Knight’s animated adventures, and will serve as executive producer of the film. Bat-fans everywhere won’t be able to use their Kevin Conroy placards for this trip, as Peter Weller (RoboCop) will voice the aged Caped Crusader himself. Batman, Part 1 offers a glimpse into the dark world and tone that longtime fans have cherished for decades now. Buckle up your utility belt, pop this Blu-ray in and enjoy Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 when it hits shelves on September 25, 2012.
The project will also be available On Demand and for Download.
