The release of The Dark Knight Returns Part 1 is closing in. This is one of the most respected Batman tales ever written by the legendary Frank Miller who also did another classic bat-tale, Year One. His take on the characters beginning was recently adapted into an animated feature as well. The animation looks top notch from all the clips so far and the one below may be my favorite yet. It's always great to see a demonized Batman through the eyes of some crook who's feeling fear.
Along with the clip and images WB released an official statement announcing that Peter Weller will be attending the premiere on the 24th of this month. What's the significance of Robocop himself being at a Batman animated movie release? He will be voicing Mr.Wayne in the film which I'm still trying to get used to, but should end up just fine in the full film.
