A new featurette for the animated movie Batman: The Dark Knight Returns has landed online.

I'm not sure, but this might be a part of the Superman Vs. The Elite animated movie, which went on sale today.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 1 comes out this Fall, with Part 2 next year.


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.
Peter Weller (Robocop) will be the voice of Batman/Bruce Wayne, Ariel Winter (Modern Family) as Robin. David Selby (original Dark Shadows soap opera), Wade Williams (Prison Break) as Harvey Dent/Two-Face; and Michael McKean as Dr. Wolper, the psychiatrist who releases the Joker from the insane asylum. The movie is being directed by Jay Oliva, who was the storyboard artist for Zack Snyder's upcoming Superman movie Man of Steel, from a script by Bob Goodman.
