Although Miller’s 1986 miniseries only comprised four issues, its jarring tech-noir fable about fallen heroes, corrupted cultures and mutant takeovers rebooted Batman across media. From Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman blockbuster and Bruce Timm’s influential Batman: The Animated Series all the way to Nolan’s live-action epics, everyone has bowed to Miller’s revisionism.

The new movie, shepherded by Timm and with Robocop actor Peter Weller as the voice of a resurgent Bruce Wayne, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part One touches down Sept. 25 on Blu-ray and DVD. It’s the 15th, and the most ambitious, of the DC Universe animated films.

An excellently cast Weller is joined by Batman: Under the Red Hood‘s Wade Williams as Harvey Dent/Two-Face, The Social Network’s David Selby as Commissioner Gordon and This Is Spinal Tap’s Michael McKean as poor Dr. Bartholomew Wolper.

Warner Bros. Animation has not yet divulged who it has cast as Joker, but we’re partial to John DiMaggio (Futurama, Adventure Time), whose brutal clown prince of crime reigned over Batman: Under the Red Hood, one of the DC Universe’s finest animated films.

Since Miller didn’t trot out Superman as Ronald Reagan’s stooge until late in the pages of The Dark Knight Returns, the Man of Steel voice-casting information should become available before the second half of the animated two-parter touches down in early 2013

^Same story, same villain same errthang? You must be wildin. Anyone who ever read this when they were younger would be hyped.

I'm just wondering how much they might tone down from the source material. I'd let The Dark Knight Strikes Again slide, but here's hoping the don't touch All Star Batman and Robin.

This movie is adapted from a graphic novel.

Check it out. TDK Rises takes a lot from it as well.

i just re-read the graphic novel not too long ago. really hyped for this now:

some background:

- this takes place several years after batman has retired (...sound familiarconfused
- in part 1 harvey dent, after receiving cosmetic surgery, relapses as two face and brings an old-aged batman out of retirement
- he teams up with a gymnast girl who discovers his identity and takes on the robin mantle (familiar againconfused... no mention/appearance of nightwing.
- in part 2, batman has to fight a gang leader who has overrun gotham city with his band of goons and mercenaries (hmmmmm....)
- gotham is under a nuclear threat (... i think i saw a movie like this)

if you were fan of TDKR, i'd say check this out as it (graphic novel) is definitely one primary sources of inspiration for the nolan films.

there's even a part when Batman first re-appears, and an old cop tells a rookie cop "it's Batman! hey, you're in for a show!"

yeah, Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns was basically The Nolan Dark Knight of the comic book world back in 86. it was one of the first times Batman was portrayed in a darker and more realistic tone with real-world consequences.

The TDKR Pt. 2 Joker looks inspired by Mark Hammil to me which would be dope since he's the best Joker voice ever. I still haven't read the comic, need to do that. Killing Joke is the business theaux.

Part 2 leaked on the net last week. I think they did a really good job with this overall, easily making this two part series  my favourite animated feature from DC to date. My only gripe would be the exclusion of his inner monologue, which to me was one of the best parts about the book and Frank's writing.

^ Part 2 is easily better than Part 1. This is typical Frank Miller dark writing.

Joker's voice in Part 2 is lol.
