It’s our second clip from the upcoming The Dark Knight Returns Part 2, releasing January 29th, – the first can be found here – and it features one of my favorite moments from the classic Frank Miller comic. Batman riding a horse. You don’t need anymore setup than that, enjoy,
There’s just something ludicrous and lovely about Batman on horse, breaking a rifle in half with his bare hands, and rallying his troops of face-painted weirdos. I reviewed The Dark Knight Returns Part 1 when it released last year, and I’m expecting the second part to be not unlike the first, “… a solid adaptation whose devout version of Batman’s later years will likely be loved by fans and enjoyed, but maybe a little mocked, by newcomers to Miller’s final days of The Dark Knight.” I mean, come on, Batman is riding a horse.
With Gotham City back under his watchful eye, and accompanied by able sidekick Robin, Batman continues to battle crime – but his resurgence awakens a far worse evil at Arkham Asylum: The Joker. In the meantime, Superman has been dispatched by the President to halt Batman’s unsanctioned reign by whatever means necessary. Between the Joker’s diabolical scheme to drag Batmanto the darkest levels of insanity, and the Man of Steel’s seemingly invincible physical presence, the Dark Knight must confront adversaries and allies simultaneously while maintaining the peace in Gotham City.
Primetime television stars Michael Emerson (Person of Interest, Lost) and Mark Valley (Human Target, Fringe) join the voice cast as The Joker and Superman, respectively; and popular talk show host Conan O’Brien gives voice to animated talk show host Dave Endochrine. Fanboy favorite Peter Weller (RoboCop, Dexter) continues as Bruce Wayne/Batman, and he is once again accompanied by David Selby (The Social Network, Dark Shadows) as Commissioner Gordon, Ariel Winter (Modern Family) as Carrie/Robin, and Michael McKean (This is Spinal Tap) as Dr. Bartholomew Wolper. Also featured in the voice cast is Maria Canals-Barrrera (Wizards of Waverly Place) as new Commissioner Yindel, Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds) as Lana Lang, and Radio Hall of Fame member Michael Jackson as Alfred.
The Dark Knight Returns Part 2 releases January 29th on DVD, Blu-ray, and digital formats. Will you be snagging a copy?
