First clip from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2

Ahead of its release later this month, Warner Bros. has released the first clip from the upcoming animated feature Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2, which sees Batman (voiced by Peter Weller of RoboCop fame) squaring off against the Gotham City police department and their new Comissioner Ellen Yindel (Maria Canals Barrera; Justice League).

The concluding chapter to Warner Animation’s two-part adaptation of Frank Miller’s seminal comic book arc, The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2 sees Batman and Robin (Ariel Winter; Modern Family) leading a vigilante group to protect Gotham after a nuclear winter descends on the city. Meanwhile, The Dark Knight also has to contend with the reemergence of The Joker (Michael Emerson; Lost), while the US government dispatches the Man of Steel (Mark Valley; Human Target) to take down the Batman once and for all.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2 is released on Blu-ray, DVD and Download in North America on January 29th, 2013.
