Batman Lays Down the Law in Another The Dark Knight Returns Part 2 Clip

Batman in Batman - The Dark Knight Returns Part 2 (2013) Movie Image

I’m actually pretty surprise how faithful the two-part Batman movie “The Dark Knight Returns” follows the Frank Miller limited series comic books from the ’80s. It’s pretty damn faithful, in case you were wondering, though I gotta admit, the whole Reagan/Russian thing is a tad, well, anachronistic. They probably should have tweaked that a bit, but hey, I guess faithfulness has its price.

Here’s a second clip from “Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 2″, which finds Batman confronting the Sons of the Batman gang. (Yes, I said the Sons of the Batman gang. Trust me, it makes sense in the larger story.)

The Dark Knight along with new sidekick Robin have finally reclaimed Gotham City and allowed a ray of hope to penetrate the reign of terror that The Mutants had cast upon his city. With Batman back in the spotlight the extended media coverage has awoken a far worse evil at Arkham Asylum The Joker! Forever destined to be mortal enemies The Joker has a diabolical scheme that may pull Batman down to the darkest levels of insanity. While on the horizon a global catastrophe races towards Gotham and with it comes a familiar face The Man of Steel though this time he has Batman in his sights. Witness as the aging Dark Knight wages a tireless war against crime while proving that courage and will are indeed timeless.

Featuring the voices of Peter Weller, Ariel Winter, David Selby, with Michal Emerson as the Joker and Mark Valley as Superman.

Bats returns January 29, 2013 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment as a Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD, On Demand and for Download.

  • r4zor

  • Aegon the Conqueror

    Just finished watching it. It was friggen awesome! I wonder what the chances are that they will adapt the Dark Knight Strikes Again.

    • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

      God I hope not! That was horrible. Hated almost every thing that was done there.

      • Juggernaut

        I didn’t hate it but it was waaaay too much. They should have stuck to a straight Bat-centric story and if they wanted to show the other heroes of the DCU in a similar timeline and stylization the could have done a series of comic one shots for each character.

          As I recall, Miller was so impacted by 9/11, which happened in the middle of “TDKSA” that he drastically changed much of the storyline to reflect his feelings. That probably accounts for why the book felt so disjointed and in a lot of ways “out of control”.

          • Juggernaut

            I could see that. He started in one direction then went another mid way through. Makes sense.

          • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Nix

            I remember there was a huge delay between issues because Miller ended up changing so much after 9/11.

          • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

            I guess so. I just have an issue with most of the story. It just didn’t seem to make sense. It was just like all over and half the story beats seemed out of place and wrong.

  • Aegon the Conqueror

    Well I haven’t read it yet, ordered myself a copy. But the ending for Returns just sets it up so perfectly for a sequel.

    • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

      Yeah it does, and then the sequel kinda went of the rails. There were some good ideas, but mostly it just didn’t come together well at all.
