We’re less than a month away from the release of the DC animated film Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 and we’ve got the first clip from the film for you. The film will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital platforms on September 25th. It’s described as follows:
Its 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.
Peter Weller is providing the voice of Batman/Bruce Wayne and is joined by David Selby as Commissioner Gordon, Ariel Winter as Robin, Wade Williams as Two-Face and Michael McKean as Dr. Bartholomew Wolper.
