The Dark Knight Returns - Trailer

Get More: MTV Shows

Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns is a revolutionary comic book that, in combination with Batman: Year One (also by Miller), established the grisly and gloomy tone of the contemporary Batman universe back in the 1980s. Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy was heavily influenced by Miller’s graphic literature, and Dark Knight Rises borrows plot elements from Miller’s tale (about Bruce Wayne resurrecting his identity as the Caped Crusader, to battle a new threat).

Miller’s troubling vision of Gotham City no longer has the ability to shock as it once did, but that might not matter, as the trailer for the first half of DC’s Dark Knight Returns feature adaptation suggests it remains as entertaining as ever (even in cleaner, hand-drawn animation form).
