MTV have released a first glimpse of the impressive-looking animated adaption of Frank Miller‘s The Dark Knight Returns. Have a look below…
If you like the look of this, you’ll love the original graphic novel:
“It is ten years after an aging Batman has retired and Gotham City has sunk deeper into decadence and lawlessness. Now as his city needs him most, the Dark Knight returns in a blaze of glory. Joined by Carrie Kelly, a teenage female Robin, Batman takes to the streets to end the threat of the mutant gangs that have overrun the city. And after facing off against his two greatest enemies, the Joker and Two-Face for the final time, Batman finds himself in mortal combat with his former ally, Superman, in a battle that only one of them will survive. This collection is hailed as a comics masterpiece and was responsible for the launch of the Batman movies.”
The Dark Knight Returns: Part One is due to hit US retail in October – no news of a UK release date yet.
