Re: The Dark Knight Returns animated movies news

I was referring specifically to the part of an aging Batman in a TDKR movie, but thanks. Sorry I wasn't more clear what I meant.

Re: The Dark Knight Returns animated movies news

I saw it last night, and generally enjoyed it. I missed some of Bruce's inner monologue and wanted to see Batman holding the flag-draped corpse of the general, but hey, it's as close of an adaptation as any, so I won't complain about nit-pickery stuff.

Can't wait for part 2.

Re: The Dark Knight Returns animated movies news

I really enjoyed it - it had the "feeling" of the original Frank Miller graphic novel without looking so forced that it was almost a joke, but I do like the visual tricks they did with some of the sequences, especially with Two Face. The fight with the head Mutant was pretty well done, considering in the comic it was very stylized.

They impressed me, considering that they made an "old" story feel pretty fresh and almost like it could have easily slotted into the old Batman Animated Series. All you would have needed was Kevin Conroy to voice Batman - but I'll admit Peter Weller was an interesting choice. I sort of was hoping for somone more gravely voiced but then again, it was pretty cool having Robocop/Buckaroo Banzai voicing Batman.

I really am looking forward to Part 2 - but I wonder how they'll hand some of the far more sexual nature toward the end of the series. With an overweight Selina Kyle tied up in a Wonder Woman costume. Or the Dr. Joyce Brothers "Zex Und Zex Und ZEX!" thing.

So we'll see - will they punk out and go vanilla for the "kiddies" or will they keep it all in and say "hey for 'dults only!"

They punked out quite a bit in part one. For example-- the aforementioned General's flag-draped corpse in Batman's arms, the smoke from the joint Carrie's parents were smoking, and the big bear-hug that Carrie gave the nude Bruce Wayne in the Batcave, among other things.

When I read that as a kid, I thought that Batman killed the general, which I always thought was wrong. Of course, I also thought he killed the Joker!

That was a parody of Dr. Ruth Westheimer. Dr. Brothers is neither German nor a sex therapist.

Re: The Dark Knight Returns animated movies news

THAT'S who I was thinking of - about 10 minutes after I posted that I was like "that's the wrong Dr." Dr. WUTH! How could I forget Dr. Ruth!

Gah I am such a bad child of the 80s.

Boy the covers for both parts are horrible. The actual trailer is awesome. Though Weller seems very miscast.

Conan O'Brien will voice Dave Endochrine in "The Dark Knight Returns Part II".

Re: The Dark Knight Returns animated movies news

Conan has worked with Bruce Timm before...mainly on the Flaming C skits on his show, which Timm drew. It probably was just easier to ask Conan. I doubt Lettermen would have agreed.

Wonder if they'll change the character design to look more like O'Brien than Letterman?
