An epic is now animated. The Dark Knight Returns, the modern day classic Batman tale by Frank Miller, is now a two part animated film from DC Entertainment. Released today was the first trailer, and from what I saw, I’m impressed!
Hardcore Bat-fans will know all too well the story of The Dark Knight Returns, but for those that don’t, I will break it down: the Batman has retired, Gotham has went to crap, mutants run the streets and the heroes aren’t lending a hand. Sound similar to The Dark Knight Rises? Well, the 2012 film was probably influenced by this story, which was originally released in the 80’s.
So check out the trailer, and get ready for one of the best Bat stories of all time.
