Frank Miller’s classic Batman tale is finally coming to the small screen with Warner Brothers’ latest collaboration with DC Comics, entitled ‘The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1.’ I’m happy to see that Producer Bruce Timm and his team are taking their time with this project by stretching it out over two films. ’The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1′ will be available on Blu-ray/DVD on Septemeber 25, 2012, while Part 2 will be released some time in early 2013. Are you excited to see old-man Bruce Wayne in action?

Synopsis: …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.
