Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1
7:00 PM PT
Frank Miller’s landmark graphic novel about fear, hope, and redemption is celebrated with proper measures of haunting visuals and intense action in Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1, the next entry in the series of DC Universe Animated Original Movies. Fanboy demigod Peter Weller (RoboCop) leads a stellar voice cast as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Joining Weller behind the microphone is David Selby (The Social Network, Dark Shadows) as Commissioner Gordon, Ariel Winter (Modern Family) as Carrie/Robin, three-time DCU veteran Wade Williams (Prison Break) as Harvey Dent/Two-Face, and Michael McKean (This Is Spinal Tap) as Dr. Bartholomew Wolper.
In the bleak and ominous future of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1, it has 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 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.
