Sneak peek at Warner Animation’s The Dark Knight Returns

June 13th, 2012 by Marc Comments

We may have mentioned that Batman movie coming out this summer, but there’s been very little talk about the other Batman movie coming later in the year…

Yes, this Fall will see the blu-ray/DVD release of The Dark Knight Returns. Frank Miller’s ‘final’ Batman adventure (em, except for the sequel he wrote) is arguably the greatest Batman comic ever written, if not the greatest comic of any type.
Set in a nihilistic future where society is crumbling under the weight of crime and media, Gotham City is on its knees, over-run by a vicious gang called the mutants. But Bruce Wayne cannot simply sit back and watch, no matter how old he is.

This is a 12 minute peek into the movie and what the first half – yes, it’s so epic it’s in 2 parts – of the movie will bring us. Oh and doesn’t Peter Weller just feel so damn right as Batman? Now if only we could confirm those Mark Hamill as the Joker rumours… Enjoy

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
