I’m starting to wonder just how many clips are going to appear online for the upcoming release of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 from Warner Brothers and DC Comics, as today a fourth clip has been released (albeit, a very cool clip) showcasing Batman taking down some criminals. We still have two weeks to go before the film hits Blu-ray and DVD, so at this rate we probably have a few more clips to go before its premiere if they keep this up! Hit the jump to watch!
…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.
Head on over to Batman News to check out some still shots, as well as info regarding the film’s September 24th premiere in Los Angeles.
