Back in July, we exclusively premiered the trailer for the DC Universe animated feature “Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1” and it was pretty freakin’ awesome. Well now, we’re unleashing the exclusive first look at “The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2” trailer and guess what? It’s pretty freakin’ awesome too!
As I’m sure you’ve seen from the video above, this sucker is chocked full of Supes on Bats fisticuffs, gun-toting Dark Knight action and plenty of teasing Joker hijinx. This trailer is also very cool because it features our first taste of “Lost” star Michael Emerson’s take on the Clown Prince of Crime, and in my humble opinion, he sounds pretty dang good.
“Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2” will have a heavy presence at New York Comic Con, showing footage and hosting a panel featuring executive producer Bruce Timm, dialogue/casting director Andrea Romano and special guests on Saturday, October 13 from 12:15-1:15 p.m. in the IGN Theater at the Jacob Javitz Center. Also, you’ll have a chance to get Timm and Romano’s autographs following the panel at 2:00pm in the DC booth on the con floor.
But that’s not all, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will debut the one-hour documentary “The Batmobile,” on Friday, October 12 from 1:30-2:30 p.m. in the IGN Theater. According to the official press release, “The Batmobile” is:
