Warner Bros. has released the first clip from “Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 2″, the second part of their adaptation of Frank Miller’s seminal take on the dark knight crusader. The first part, of course, came out last year. The clip below features Batman facing off against a large contingent of Gotham City police and their leader, new Commissioner Ellen Yindel.
Part 2 of “The Dark Knight Returns” finds Batman not only having to battle Gotham City’s cops, but also the return of his archnemesis, the Joker, as well as a certain Big Blue Boyscout. It’s gonna be an epic throwdown, for sure.
The Batman has returned after a 10-year absence. The Gotham authorities want to arrest him. An old foe wants a reunion. The Feds want the Man of Tomorrow to put a stop to him.
Peter Weller voices Batman, though you don’t hear him in this clip. Maria Canals-Barrera is Yindel. “The Human Target” star Mark Valley is the Last Son of Krypton.
Bats arrives January 29, 2013 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment as a Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD, On Demand and for Download.
