Warner Home Video has just unleashed the third clip from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1, arriving on Blu-ray and DVD September 25. Peter Weller voices Batman in this adaptation of Frank Miller's legendary graphic novel. Watch as the Dark Knight takes out two Gotham thugs, using a hallucinogenic toxin ala The Scarecrow, causing the second criminal to see a demonic version of The Bat!
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.
