A new trailer for Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 1 has just been released.  It appears that the films will be very faithful to the Frank Miller classic.  I am very excited to see these 2 films as The Dark Knight Returns was the comic that made me a fan of comics.

Here is the official synopsis;

…it’s 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.

The return of Harvey Dent as Two-Face finally prompts Wayne to once again don the Dark Knight’s cowl, and his dramatic capture of the villain returns him to crime-fighting – simultaneously making him the target of law enforcement and the new hope for a desolate Gotham City. Particularly inspired is a teenage girl named Carrie, who adopts the persona of Robin and ultimately saves Batman from a brutal attack by the Mutant leader. Armed with a new sidekick, and re-energized with a definitive purpose, the Dark Knight returns to protect Gotham from foes new…and old.

Peter Weller (Robocop) portrays the voice of Batman/Bruce Wayne and is joined by David Selby (D3) as Commissioner Gordon, Ariel Winter (Modern Family) as Robin, Wade Williams (Prison Break) as Two-Face and Michael McKean (Spinal Tap) as Dr. Bartholomew Wolper. Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 will be released on September 25th, 2012 and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2 will be released in early 2013.

Are you excited?
