Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Spotlights First Footage Of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2 And Premiere Screening Of The Batmobile Documentary At New York Comic Con



Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2 and The Batmobile documentary will be the spotlight offerings from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment at New York Comic Con.

Attendees of the Con will be the first to see footage from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2, the highly anticipated epic animated conclusion to Frank Miller’s landmark story. On Saturday, October 13 from 12:15-1:15 p.m. in the IGN Theater at the Jacob Javitz Center, executive producer Bruce Timm, dialogue/casting director Andrea Romano and special guests will discuss the making of the next DC Universe Animated Original Movie and show some tantalizing clips. Also anticipated during the panel is the announcement of the 2013 slate of DCU animated films. Produced by Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2 will arrive from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment in early 2013.

An autograph session with Timm & Romano will follow the panel at 2:00 p.m. in the DC Entertainment booth.

No vehicle has ever captured fans’ imagination like the Batmobile – and New York Comic Con attendees will be the first to see the entire one-hour documentary, The Batmobile, at a special premiere screening on Friday, October 12 from 1:30-2:30 p.m. in the IGN Theater.

The film gives a riveting, in-depth examination of the Batmobile – from the impressive history of all of the vehicles to the construction of this iconic character. The documentary features a distinguished array of Batman experts and filmmakers including Adam West; George Barris, designer of the famed 1966 Batmobile; respected producer/author Michael Uslan (The Boy Who Loved Batman); Andy Smith, builder of the modern-day Dark Knight Tumblers; Tim Burton, Director of Batman (1989) & Batman Returns; Joel Schumacher, Director of Batman Forever and Batman & Robin; Christian Bale; and Christopher Nolan, Director of The Dark Knight Trilogy. The Batmobile documentary is directed by Roko Belic and produced by Tara Tremaine for Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

Part One on bluray has some footage of the second movie, but its mostly pencils. It also shows the actors voicing the characters.

FYI They score is AWESOME!

@starscream9289

You are correct sir.
TheOneAboveAll - 10/4/2012, 4:12 PM
I never expected Peter Weller's voice to fit Batman/Bruce so well! :D I absolutely loved the first part
marvel72 - 10/4/2012, 4:13 PM

I really enjoyed part one...was like an origin for an old man...part two will be sick with supes and joker.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 10/4/2012, 4:24 PM

DioFoRio - 10/4/2012, 4:26 PM
I really love the animation and overall movie with the evil alternate JLA. my tops fave. Wish MArvel would tap the Disney tit for some decent animation. Shits sloppy man. By far AEMH was their best to date and it got cancelled. Crazy. About as crazy as a grown man who still likes cartoons but ...what can ya do.
ArtisticErotic - 10/4/2012, 4:27 PM
I hope they release the OST soon.
DioFoRio - 10/4/2012, 4:27 PM

DioFoRio - 10/4/2012, 4:28 PM
Justice.
DioFoRio - 10/4/2012, 4:28 PM

@ im53

if the dark knight returns was one complete movie not told over two parts i may think differently towards it.

1RoninAmongBitches - 10/4/2012, 5:15 PM

MutantEquality - 10/4/2012, 5:29 PM

Can't wait! Part 1 was everything I had hoped for!
mawilli4 - 10/4/2012, 5:52 PM
I hope they also make the Dark Knight Strikes Again.
ForceOfLegend - 10/4/2012, 6:03 PM
The Dark Knight Returns was one of the best Batman films of all time! I still haven't seen Under the Red Hood yet. Mask of the Phantasim was a masterpiece too!
damntree - 10/4/2012, 6:04 PM
This was pretty good and I don't even like Batman. I'm not to fond of the voice acting, particularly Gordon.
INFO - 10/4/2012, 6:28 PM
Oh hell yeah! cant wait read the novel this should be good Joker for the first.
Optimus83 - 10/4/2012, 7:30 PM
¡¡¡Good!!!. ...¡¡¡Epic Movie!!!
DCjohnny - 10/4/2012, 8:01 PM

AstroZombie - 10/4/2012, 8:24 PM
Part 1 was boss, can't wait for part 2.
weaponx123 - 10/4/2012, 9:12 PM
Hope part 2 will have Batman dawn Kryptonite gauntlets to kick Supermans ass like in the comics!
CVTom - 10/4/2012, 10:33 PM
Part One was freakin incredible! I can't wait for Part two with the Joker and Superman.
ImnotDaredevil - 10/5/2012, 2:09 AM
Apologies if I'm being a dumb ass, maybe I didn't get the memo but how do I get to see this in the uk? Is this doing the cinemas at the mo or DVD ? Living in deep dark north Cornwall I can't seem to find it anywhere.
Ryanandrews82 - 10/5/2012, 2:40 AM
I had to download it to see it! why WB or DC decided not to release it in the UK is just plain stupid! Surely companies that wanna stop video piracy should use a little common sense! Anyway - moaning over - i fricking loved it - one slight disagreement commisioner gordons voice - not quite right for me!
GoILL - 10/5/2012, 6:06 AM
Loved te first so i'll definitely get part 2.
dezdigi - 10/5/2012, 7:47 AM
^Umm, Marvel?
lanternstorm - 10/5/2012, 8:11 AM
that's what I was thing dezdigi lol....
ImnotDaredevil - 10/5/2012, 8:43 AM
So it's not being released in the uk?!! Damn, & I thought I was being a dumbass! Way to go who's ever that decision was. Got to be honest I'm someone who has always liked buying the originals not to so much support the struggling film industry(?!!?) but because I'm anal & I like the look of them in my CBM collection, now however ,I feel my first download coming on.
ScabbyJ - 10/5/2012, 9:34 AM
Everyone who has read the book knows what Batman's running towards... Perfect press shot. They tease us so
