Worried that the animated adaptation of Frank Miller's classic Batman: The Dark Knight Returns might dampen down the violence and menace of the original? Here's a clip from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Pt. 1 to assuage your concerns, with bone-cracking sound effects to make longtime fans feel right at home. Shame the criminal in question couldn't say the same.


As you've heard in this (and previous) clips, Batman's played by RoboCop himself, Peter Weller. The rest of the cast includes Michael McKean, Modern Family's Ariel Winter and a little hint of Lost's Michael Emerson as the Joker.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 1 is released on Blu-ray and DVD on September 25, and is already available through iTunes.
