Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Pt. 2 Trailer

The trailer for the second part of the Frank Miller's classic Dark Knight Returns story is here!

Although it doesn't come out until 2013, the trailer for part 2 of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns is here. MTV Geek released the trailer this morning, and it looks like an action-packed, epic event. Check out the video below.

Get More: MTV Shows

In part one, we got to see a retired Bruce Wayne return to the cape and cowl after he became disgusted with the crime wave hitting Gotham, and mainly the Mutants who publicly declared war against anyone who stood in their way.

In the trailer for part two, we can see that not only has the Joker returned to Gotham, after a stint in a mental institution where he remained in a catatonic state because there was no Batman to fight anymore, but we finally get to see one of the most famous battles in all of comic books: Batman versus Superman.

Lots of fans are extremely excited to see Frank Miller's book finally hit the screens, and this straight-to-DVD epic will be releasing in 2013.

What do you guys think of this trailer? Do you think it's been a good adaptation of the Dark Knight Returns?

Awesome! Part 1 is one of my favorite batman movies!

The voice actor for Superman sounds a lot like George Newbern. Looks pretty good.

As if the first one was amazing enough, this second one looks that much better!

Posted by NightFang

This is going to be epic!

Posted by Dracade102

This looks even better than the last one.

Gonna wait till I can get both parts together. Imagine it's great but can't stand half done stories in movies.

Posted by Spideycap

Goosebumps...part 1 was probably the best animated movie I've ever seen and we all know part 2 gets even better. Can Not Wait.

Can't wait for part 2. Superman is being voiced by Mark Valley from Human Target & Harry's Law

WHY DO THEY PUT THOSE PARTS IN THE TRAILER?!? you can peice it all together......

This is so stupid, Superman could kill before Batman would even react.

why are you even... You know what im not even going to bother. you havent read TDKR and your only knowledge regarding the dc universe is probably from cartoons, movies and wiki. perhaps the new 52 but that doesnt count. except swamp thing and animal man.

MIND AWESOMED ALL OVER THE PLACE

Hm. It's a bummer that this isn't coming out until next year, but I'm still holding out for a version that has both halves edited together.

Two words:

"DC RULES..!!!!!!"

Wow, can't wait.

Posted by Cavemold

Give me now!!!!!!!

Posted by evilvegeta74

Looks great,but why the long wait for an hour and thirty minutes of animation, seems a bit absurd.

Posted by Selinaky

So excited for this.

Posted by InnerVenom123

The "I AM THE LAW"/"WE ARE THE LAW" lines are really badly butchered. That is the least threatening war cry I've ever heard.

The rest is great.

i dont care for the voice actors

Coming.... in December 2013.... Yikes! What await for something so awesome!

Posted by Smurfboy

I thought Batman Part One was awesome. Definitely will get Part Two on day one. Please forgive me and I have not read the comic book just yet, but why Batman had to fight with Superman? They're both best friends for many years! Plus we all know that it's no way Batman could even win against Superman unless I'm missing some important information.

@redwingx: You have no knowledge on the characters. You shouldn't be on this site. Its more than just brute force. It's psychology and ideologies.

lol, man this is my sentiment at least once everytime I come on the vine.

I thought the exact same thing.

Overall I'm excited. I was pretty reserved after seeing the part 1 trailer but that ended up being great so I have faith. Noticed we didn't see Ollie though. I'll be pissed if they cut him out. Also, the wiki for this says the release date is winter 2013? That cant be right.....right?

Posted by Smurfboy

Early Winter 2013. Possibly January/February release.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

I'll wait until they come out with a definitive two-disc set with both parts 1 and 2 together sold at once. I do like this though...

Posted by Smurfboy

@redheadedAtrocitus, I highly doubt it will happen anytime soon. Although that'd be nice, though.

My god. That looks GREAT!!!!!

Winter 2013 is in 3 months, so no worries. That that I want to wait that long but at least it's not fall 2013.

Oh, duh. I was thinking like December 2013. lol. Thank's for posting some sense into me.

Really? I'd wager we'll see them in a box set together, if not at the exact time of part 2's release, only shortly after.

Aw, man. I didn't even had a chance to watch part 1 yet!

Posted by JamDamage

the Joker sucks already

Posted by Iron_Turtle

@deadpool25mm: Well it is a 26 year old story.......

Posted by KZR

@modunhanul: Likewise chum.

Posted by SUPER-MAN 23

I want it now!

Posted by PortlandsBatman

@Onemoreposter: I did the same thing at first.

Posted by The_jackolantern

What about we explain how batman would win instead of just being a douch

Posted by The_jackolantern

Why do all these old school geeks have a go at newbies for not reading something 25 years old! Yeah TDKR is a damn classic but just cause they haven't read it you don't get to be a dick just school them on there mistakes and walk-on

The wait is unbearable...

Well, at least we all know who DOES know how to say "I AM THE LAW" correctly...

I completely agree with you, by the way. I'm still not completely sold on Peter Weller as Old Batman.

Posted by BryanEllison

This looks awesome. I thought part 1 was really good, so I'll definitely be picking this up.

Posted by Oscars94

Does Superman not age? Do we have a Captain America "Man Out Of Time" Scenario here where Kal-El is alone and being just the Government's lacky? Also has Batman changed a lot in this arc because I saw Part 1 (so awesome) and he used guns. Has he succumbed to the darkness?
