Batman Takes Flight in First Clip from The Dark Knight Returns Part 1

Get your first look at a clip from Warner/D.C.’s original animated movie “Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 1”, the first of a two-part epic movie adapting Frank Miller’s seminal 1980s Batman mini-series “The Dark Knight Returns”, which stars an older Caped Crusader coming out of retirement to bust some heads. I was hoping to see Supes in this thing, but I fear they’re going to remove that part of the story completely, which is too bad cause that could have been really cool. Of course, if Supes does show up in Part 1, I’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Batman has not been seen for ten years. A new breed of criminal ravages Gotham City, forcing 55-year-old Bruce Wayne back into the cape and cowl. But, does he still have what it takes to fight crime in a new era?

Featuring the voices of Ariel Winter, Peter Weller and Michael Emerson, and directed by Jay Oliva.

Bats returns on DVD/Blu-ray September 25, 2012. Part 2 is due in 2013.
