I know DC Animation has been working on bringing Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns to life as a 2 part animated movie, but I keep pinching myself to see if I’m dreaming. Anyway, now it’s a total reality, the Hollywood Reporter recently dropped some images and revealed some of the cast, and I’m pretty excited…
though my dream of Powers Boothe voicing Batman isn’t happening, we will be getting an equally badass actor:
Yes. THAT Peter Weller. ROBOCOP!
Must reiterate; ROBOCOP is BATMAN!!!
Pretty fucking sweet.
Also, Carrie Kelly/Robin will be voiced by Ariel Winter (Modern Family)
Which is also pretty fucking sweet.
Harvey Dent/Two Face will be voiced by Wade Williams (Prison Break). And Dr Wolper will be voiced by Michael McKean. They’ve also cast David Selby to voice someone, but they haven’t said who. My guess is Gordon or Alfred.
Still no word on The Joker, but I’m hoping they’ll get Tim Curry.
