Batman The Dark Knight Returns Part 2 now outBy Steve Sievers & Dahveed Kolodny-Nagy
HOLLYWOOD(Hollywood Today)2/13/13/–Batman The Dark Knight Returns Part 2 is DC’s Comics latest animated featured. The animation follows the classic graphic novels from author Frank Miller. The books were released in 1986 and was set during the time period of the cold war. During this time, all superheroes are banned by law except for Superman who works directly with President Ronald Regan. Bruce Wayne comes out of retirement in Part 1 of the animated featured. With tension raising between USA & USSR, President Regan sends Superman to deal with Batman’s return to Gotham. However, Bruce Wayne is more concern with the return of the Joker.
Batman The Dark Knight Returns Part 2 is worth owning because it contains the two biggest conflicts in comic book history. First is the finally show down between Batman & Joker, which fittingly takes place at an Amusement Park. Then there is the epic (and I mean epic) show down between Batman & Superman. How can Batman hang with Superman in a fight? Well you will have to watch this epic kick ass show down between heroes. Overall, the animation stays true to Frank Millers original vision and nicely cuts down on the talkiness from the graphic novel. This feature can be easily summed up as “pure bad-ass.”
Hollywood Today checks in with (Executive Producer) Bruce Timm at the Los Angeles Premiere of Batman The Dark Knight Returns Part 2. Many credit Bruce Timm as the Batman-God for being credited with almost all WB’s Batman animated TV shows and features including Batman Beyond, Justice League, Batman: Mask of Phantasm, and the extremely poplar Batman the animated series from the early 1990′s. Bruce Timm talks with Dahveed about his latest Batman project and what he has in his mind for future Batman animation.
