Today marks the release of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1, and we have one final clip to show, featuring nothing more than Robin running and doing flips. Not much to see here, but we haven’t seen much from Robin for the film in previous clips, so it is at least worth a look. Hit the jump to see this story’s version of Robin, who is actually a female this time around by the name of Carrie Kelly, voiced by Ariel Winter.
…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.
