“The Dark Knight Returns” Animated Movie Sneak Peek
If you were able to pick up DC’s Superman Vs. The Elite animated movie, then you may have already viewed the sneak peek for Warner Bros. Animated’s next movie. It looks like Warner has been developing an animated adaptation of the Frank Miller classic, The Dark Knight Returns.
The story is going to be split in two parts, with the first coming out this fall. Part two comes out early 2013. In addition to the video, here’s the official synopsis.
Peter Weller (Robocop) will voice Batman/Bruce Wayne and Ariel Winter (Modern Family) will voice Robin. The film will also feature David Selby (original Dark Shadows), Wade Williams (Prison Break) as Harvey Dent/Two-Face; and Michael McKean as Dr. Wolper, the psychiatrist who releases the Joker from the insane asylum in the comic. The movie is being directed by Jay Oliva, who was the storyboard artist for Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman movie Man of Steel, from a script by Bob Goodman.

According to reports, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have selected William Monohan, the Oscar-winning writer behind The Departed, to take on the script for the much discussed and somewhat expected sequel to Sin City.
Heat Vision report that Monohan will work on a draft recently completed by Frank Miller, the man who of course created the comic series and was integral in bringing it to the big screen.
This news comes after Rodriguez confirmed last month that he had secured financing for the film, which will be titled A Dame to Kill For, and that it could begin production as early as this year.
Legendary Release Trailer for Frank Miller’s Holy Terror
Legendary Comics has released a trailer for Frank Miller’s upcoming graphic novel, Holy Terror. Reported to originally have been planned to have been a story featuring Batman against al-Qaeda, Holy Terror wasn’t picked up on by DC Comics and instead will star a new character named The Fixer.
I’m not overly excited for this, but it certainly is something I’ll probably end up checking out - either because it turns out to actually be quite good, or because of the pure insanity that Miller could provide with this.
With this originally being a Batman planned story, I wouldn’t be too surprised if the Fixer is nothing more than a carbon copy wielding guns. Heck, it’s probably the next logical step to take All-Star Batman in.
The graphic novel is planned to be released this September, coinciding with the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Fans of Frank Miller (writer of Sin City, 300, Ronin, and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns) have probably heard in the past about this project of his. Years ago Miller announced his intentions for a book entitled “Batman: Holy Terror”, which he described as “Batman vs Al Qaeda”, and a “piece of propaganda”.
Regardless of your thoughts on that project, it’s been years since he announced it, but he’s finally going to see it to publication; except, it’s not going to be quite the same.
The title is no longer related to Batman, nor will it be published by DC comics, but will instead be published by the recently formed Legendary Comics (part of existing Legendary Entertainment) on September 14th of this year. Instead of Batman the main character of the book will be a new original character of Frank Miller’s: The Fixer.
Frank Miller’s Holy Terror will ship for $29.99, and will be 120 pages in a landscape 10x13 format (much like his 300 comic).
Personally, I think this could be fun. I’m not sitting on the edge of my seat for it, because I can’t remember the last time Miller released a really great comic, but it’s good to know that his project actually will be seeing the light of day. Hopefully we’ll also get some news soon about his continuing of All-Star Batman and Robin, or about his sequel/prequel to 300, “Xerxes”.
