And, the clips just keep comin.’
DC Comics has released a third clip from the upcoming release of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1, featuring Bruce Wayne having a look at Jason Todd’s Robin costume as he remembers a promise he made to himself after Todd died. Part 1 hits Blu-ray and DVD Setember 25th, and you can catch the new clip after the jump!
…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 race cars 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.
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 is directed by Jay Oliva, written by Bob Goodman, and executive produced by Sam Register and Bruce Timm. Bruce Wayne/Batman is voiced by Peter Weller (Robocop, 24), and joining him are Wade Williams as Two-Face, David Selby as Commissioner Gordon, Ariel Winter as Robin and Michael McKean as Dr. Bartholomew Wolper. The film hits store shelves everywhere September 25th on Blu-ray combo pack and DVD. It will also be available for digital download.
