Frank Miller's seminal graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns is adapted for the small screen with a sprawling Warner Premiere animated film series that finds an old and weary Bruce Wayne (voiced by Robocop himself, Peter Weller) donning the cape and cowl once again after a long retirement. Covering the final two issues of the series, Part 2 pits the outlawed crusader against his nemesis, The Joker (voiced by LOST's Michael Emerson), as well as a militarized Superman, who carries out justice in the name of the United States of America. Ariel Winter (Modern Family) plays a female version of Robin, with Dark Shadows' David Selby rounding out the voice cast. Jay Oliva (Green Lantern: Emerald Knights directs from a script by Bob Goodman. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi.

I just hope they continue the story with an animated The Dark Knight Strikes Again, would be kool to see all the cameos by the other DC heroes from that graphic novel

Oh man that is so badass. Im glad they split it in two because it really does look like a completely different story, but works with the last part. never read the graphic novel, but I want to now!

Saw The Dark Knight Returns Part 1 on DVD quality bootleg and I can't wait to see this one. I'm really holding out hoping DC Animation will release a version with the two films edited together into a 150minute film. THEN, I'll buy it on Blu-Ray. Until then, I'm holding out.

@VicSage yeah, me too. I'm waiting for them to at least put the two films in the same box.

Dc are just on a different level with their animation to marvels which I find rather boring when it shouldn't be apart from wolverine vs hulk
