DC's Next Animated Feature: The Dark Knight Returns!
The Dark Knight rises and returns in 2012!
The next animated feature film from DC Comics comes in the form of Frank Miller’s epic masterpiece, The Dark Knight Returns. Here is a synopsis of the story:
The Dark Knight Returns is set in a near future where Batman is retired and Gotham City has slid into a dystopian state ruled by a gang of hooligans called The Mutants. The 55-year old Bruce Wayne is forced to don the cape once more, this time partnering with a female Robin to not only stop the Joker but keep the peace when the city falls into chaos after being hit by an electromagnetic pulse.
The Dark Knight Returns is known for its darkness, violence, and showdown with a certain hero with an S on his chest. The book was one of many that changed the landscape of comics, with shock waves still felt to this day. The film will be broken down in two parts: part one will hit in the fall, with the second half hitting in 2013.
