Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Animated Movie Confirmed

A few months back I posted a bit of news on here that DC/WB animation were seriously considering producing a direct to dvd animated Batman: The Dark Knight Returns movie based on the hugely successful and wildly popular graphic novel by Frank Miller. Not too much to my suprise over the weekend at this year’s San Diego Comic Con International Warner Bros. announced its lineup of animated movies coming in 2012 including Batman: The Dark Knight Returns.

First up is Justice League: Doom – an animated take on Mark Waid’s JLA: Tower of Babel story.
Superman vs. The Elite – Plot is a vague adaptation of What’s So Funny About Truth, Justice and the American Way? by Joe Kelly that appeared in Action Comics #775 from 2001 and finally Batman: The Dark Knight Returns which will be split into two parts so the first half of the story will be released on dvd then a short time later the second half will be released on dvd similar to how the last Harry Potter story was split into 2 movies.
