Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced that a deluxe double edition of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns will be released this October. The set will include both animated film adaptations of the Frank Miller series as well as the bonus features from both individual released. It is also expected to harbor some exclusive features.
The adaptations follow Bruce Wayne a decade after he has hung up his cape and quit the crime fighting life 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 provided 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. “Returns” also features Michael Emerson playing Batman’s nemesis the Joker and Mark Valley as the Man of Tomorrow, Superman. The film is directed by Jay Oliva, written by Bob Goodman and executive produced by Sam Register and Bruce Timm
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns deluxe edition will hit stores on October 8th.
