Ever wanted to hear Batman on horseback proclaim that he’s the law, ala Judge Dredd, in the original Robocop, Peter Weller’s voice? Well, you’re in luck! Check out the trailer below for The Dark Knight Returns Part 2, an original DC comics film and the second part of an adaptation of Frank Miller’s groundbreaking graphic novel of the same name.
Yeah, Peter Weller’s voice didn’t do much for me in the first movie, and it still feels disconnected from the rest of the film here. Kevin Conroy set an unfair standard for what Batman should sound like, so I don’t think people who grew up during the 90’s could ever accept any substitute…and that is no sleight against any other voice actors who played Batman or will play Batman. He’s just too damn good.
The Dark Knight Returns Part 2 hits stores on January 29, 2013.
