New THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, PART 1 Clip And Images
The Mutant Leader gives his televised declaration of war on Gotham City in this new clip for Part 1 of DC Animation's The Dark Knight Returns, which is based on the Frank Miller graphic novel and will be in stores later this month. We also have some new still images from the movie.
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 Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 is set to hit DVD, Blu-Ray, Download and OnDemmand September 25th. Part 2 will be available in early 2013.
