September 25th is just a week away and, like a proper manic depressive, you'll be crazy excited right up til the drop date, then giddy beyond imagining as you hear the bellowing tones of Peter Weller's voice speaking Batman's words...and then wondering what you'll be doing until the Avengers Blu-ray drops ...which is the same day..so your highs and lows will never be higher or lower. Our love is all encompassing...but fleeting.
To add to your pre-game excitement, we thought we'd pull some eye candy from the preview of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 2! There wasn't a whole lot to chew on in this installment as it almost seems like Warner Bros want to keep the juicy screen grabs for themselves, so we'll just have to make due with some test animation captures to give you a sense of the incredible movement and forced perspectives within this film.

Don't forget to mark your calendars for next Tuesday when Part 1 drops! Here's the synopsis:
In the bleak and ominous future of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1, it’s 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 Bruce Wayne pacifies his frustration with racecars 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. Particularly inspired is a teenage girl named Carrie, 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.
And Here are some voice actor cards to sweeten this article up. Sure, it's not Superman busting Batman upside the head, but we thought they were pretty damn cool all the same. Enjoy!
