Annoyingly, there's still no UK release date for this, DC and Warner Bros Animation's upcoming adaptation of Frank Miller's seminal comic book series, THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, but if you're in the US you'll be able to pick up PART 1 on DVD/Blu-ray from September 25th. Hopefully we'll know more soon, but while we patiently wait it out, let's all enjoy a newly released clip...

Official Synopsis:

It’s been a decade since Bruce Wayne (Peter Weller) 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 (Wade Williams) 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 (Ariel Winter), 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.
