I’d love to see this as the direction for the next set of live action films… but there’s no way it could be done with a Justice League film in the offing. Your really can’t deny the greatness of the Frank Miller Batman story, The Dark Knight Rises. This isn’t the first time that we’ve seen it animated. There was a short clip several years ago in a cartoon that was excellent. Still, this is the first time that the whole story is bring put to animation.
This will be a multi part animated epic with the first chapter being released on September 25th. Here is the cast listing and the first trailer:
Peter Weller as the voice of Batman
David Selby as Comissioner Gordon
Ariel Winter as Robin
Wade Williams as Two-Face,
Michael McKean as Dr. Bartholomew Wolper.

…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 race cars 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.
