There’s a Dark day on the horizon, and DC fans couldn’t be happier about it.
Last fall, Batman fans celebrated when Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Home Video released Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1, the first installment of an unprecedented two-part animated adaptation of Frank Miller’s seminal graphic novel, THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS. Winning over fans and critics alike, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 brought us a stunning vision of a Gotham plagued by violent gangs and an aging Dark Knight who’s driven out of retirement by a need to protect his beloved city. However, with an ending that teased the return of the Joker to Gotham, it’s hardly surprising that most fans were hungry for more.
On January 29, 2013, they’ll get their wish as Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Home Video release Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2, the concluding chapter of this epic tale. Featuring the return of Peter Weller as the voice of Batman and Bruce Wayne, David Selby as Commissioner Gordon and Modern Family’s Ariel Winter as Carrie Kelley (aka the new Robin), the PG-13 film also features Michael Emerson (of Lost and Person of Interest fame) as the Joker, Human Target’s Mark Valley as Superman and Conan O’Brien as talk show host Dave Endochrine.
