Frank Miller's seminal graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns is adapted for the small screen with a sprawling Warner Premiere animated film series that finds an old and weary Bruce Wayne (voiced by Robocop himself, Peter Weller) donning the cape and cowl once again after a long retirement. Covering the final two issues of the series, Part 2 pits the outlawed crusader against his nemesis, The Joker (voiced by LOST's Michael Emerson), as well as a militarized Superman, who carries out justice in the name of the United States of America. Ariel Winter (Modern Family) plays a female version of Robin, with Dark Shadows' David Selby rounding out the voice cast. Jay Oliva (Green Lantern: Emerald Knights directs from a script by Bob Goodman.
