First Look At Batman In “The Dark Knight Returns”

The Dark Knight Returns may be the quintessential Batman story, but many thought it would never find its way to the big screen. DC has been putting out a couple animated adaptations of their famous stories for a few years now, even releasing Year One last fall as a straight-to-DVD feature. This fall The Dark Knight Returns will get the same treatment, and The Hollywood Reporter released a slew of images from the flick today.

Below is the gallery of images in all their glory:

Here’s a synopsis of Dark Knight Returns via Amazon:

Gotham City is a hell on earth, street gangs roam but there are no heroes. Decay is ubiquitous. Where is a hero to save Gotham? It is 10 years since the last recorded sighting of the Batman. And things have got worse than ever. Bruce Wayne is close to being a broken man but something is keeping him sane: the need to see change and the belief that he can orchestrate some of that change. Batman is back. The Dark Knight has returned.
