'Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1' Trailer

Get ready for the story to get animated.

DC Entertainment and Warner Home Video have previously announced BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS will be not just a regular animated movie but instead, will be two animated movies. The story will be broken down into two parts. That means we'll get to see more of the story adapted for the small screen.

It was surprising that we didn't hear more about it at San Diego Comic-Con this year. A trailer for the first part has been released over at MTV Geek.

What do you think? Have they captured the essence of the story?

Starring Peter Weller as Batman, Ariel Winter as Robin, David Selby as Jim Gordon, Wade Williams as Harvey Dent and Michael McKean as Dr. Wolper. Look for it on Blu-ray and DVD on September 25.

I wish they had Joker in the end, waking up from his catatonic state like, "Batman... Darling..."

But otherwise I'm sold.

Can't wait for this. Dark Knight Returns/Strikes Again is one of my top 3 batman stories. I love how some of the latest animated Batman movies have gotten more mature. Maybe we're on our way to an R-rated adaptation of the Batman Vampire Trilogy...(I know that's not going to happen. But how great would that be?)

RoboCop as Batman great

@The WeatherMan: Near the end of the clip, I am pretty sure that close up of a mouth breaking into a wide grin is Joker, in the exact scene your talking about.

I was hyped for this. The animation looks "meh" and Michael Ironside was way better.
