Batman The Dark Knight Returns Part 1 (2012) Movie Blu-ray CoverCheck out three more images from “Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 1″, scheduled to arrive on DVD/Blu-ray from Warner Home Video on September 25, 2012. Despite the recent closing of Warner Premiere, the label responsible for Warner’s original animated movies, it looks like they’ll finish up the release of part 1 and part 2 of “The Dark Knight Returns” first. Good news, that.

In the bleak and ominous future of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1, it’s been a decade since Bruce Wayne hung up his cape, following most of the other superheroes who had been forced into retirement. Facing the downside of middle age, a restless Bruce Wayne pacifies his frustration with racecars and liquor – but the Bat still beckons as he watches his city fall prey to gangs of barbaric criminals known as The Mutants.

The return of Harvey Dent as Two-Face finally prompts Wayne to once again don the Dark Knight’s cowl, and his dramatic capture of the villain returns him to crime-fighting – simultaneously making him the target of law enforcement and the new hope for a desolate Gotham City. Particularly inspired is a teenage girl named Carrie, who adopts the persona of Robin and ultimately saves Batman from a brutal attack by the Mutant leader. Armed with a new sidekick, and re-energized with a definitive purpose, the Dark Knight returns to protect Gotham from foes new … and old.

The animated movie will feature the voices of Peter Weller as Bruce Wayne/Batman, David Selby as Commissioner Gordon, Ariel Winter as Carrie/Robin, Wade Williams as Harvey Dent/Two-Face, and Michael McKean as Dr. Bartholomew Wolper.

      for reals! im pretty stoked with just about every decision theyve made so far on this project. including splitting it up into parts which im hoping are both feature length.

        I believe they are. Just sucks we gotta wait 6 months between them. I bet the “Legends of the Dark Knight” episode of “Batman: TAS” is on here, though they put that on “Gotham Knights” and haven’t repeated so far. “The Batman” episode artifacts could be a substitute as they drew on TDKR for that a little bit.

      Well there have been episodes picked by Bruce Timm, and now Allen Burnett have been on every release. So if anything I see maybe two episodes with each film.
