Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Deluxe Edition Blu-ray (Updated)

Posted June 29, 2013 05:47 PM by Webmaster

Warner 90th AnniversaryWarner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced the Blu-ray release of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns - Deluxe Edition, which collects Parts 1 & 2 of the well-received animated adaptation of Frank Miller's landmark limited comic book series of the same name. The Deluxe Edition set arrives on Blu-ray/DVD/UltraViolet combo pack on October 8th.

Part 1 Synopsis: As Gotham destroys itself, an aging Bruce Wayne (Peter Weller) watches from the seclusion of his Wayne Manor, disgusted at both the new criminal element as well as his physical and mental frailties that forced him to retire ten years earlier. When Wayne's old adversary Harvey "Two-Face" Dent (Wade Williams) violently re-asserts his twisted influence, Wayne takes up the Batman mantle once more. But even improved crime-fighting technology and a new sidekick (Ariel Winter) might prove inadequate for Wayne to confront the perils of this new dystopian Gotham City.

Part 2 Synopsis: The Dark Knight (Weller), along with Robin (Winter), have finally reclaimed Gotham City and allowed a ray of hope to penetrate the reign of terror that The Mutants had cast upon his city. But with Batman back in the spotlight, the extended media coverage has awoken a far worse evil at Arkham Asylum: The Joker (Michael Emerson). Forever destined to be mortal enemies, The Joker has a diabolical scheme that may pull Batman down to the darkest levels of insanity. Meanwhile, on the horizon, a global catastrophe races towards Gotham and with it a familiar face: The Man of Steel (Mark Valley), though this time he has Batman in his sights. Witness as the aging Dark Knight wages a tireless war against crime while proving that courage and will are indeed timeless.

Complete tech specs have yet to be revealed, but special features include:

  • View The Dark Knight Returns as One Seamless Epic Film
  • New 70-minute Frank Miller Documentary: "Creating a Masterpiece" (Deluxe Edition Exclusive)
  • New Cast and Crew Commentary (DE Exclusive)
  • 4 Collector Cards (BD DE Exclusive)
  • All Previous Part 1 and Part 2 Special Features

I haven't bought the initial releases so I'm looking forward to this! Be nice to have both films in one collection. My hope is that they might combine both films into one.

Figured they would end up doing this. That's why I never bought them. Good to know they are, and I can't wait to pick it up. Hope it's put together as one big movie.

Yeah only way this will be worth trading up is if it has been spliced into one extended film. Any word on that people, anybody? It'd be appreciated, so keep us posted on that!!!

And there it is. I knew holding off on this they would put it all together. Ill either buy this or get the 2 separate at a reduced price. Im surprised they didnt promote both of these as the "Mega" events that they were. This along with "The Watchmen" were the two most iconic comics outa the 1980's that threw the comic book world on its head, and gave the comic book medium the mainstream respect that it deserved.

More surprising is that WB is including dvds with this release too, but the "milking" part was them separating it into two releases in the first place. That said, this is likely just the discs already available, bundled together, hopefully at a cheaper price - though it might actually drive the prices of the individual releases to clearance discounting, initially.

Anyone who already has both, but wants them in the same case to save on shelf space, combining similar films in the same case, the artwork for one on the outside, the other facing inside since BD cases are transparent, is pretty painless, especially if you don't store the redundant dvds with your BD collection. It's also a good way to free up replacement cases for the ones that arrive damaged in the mail. I did this with my entire collection one afternoon and freed up about 3-4 feet of shelf space and now should have enough spare cases to cover my damaged gohastings and amazon orders for a few years.

Hopefully they offer a little bit more supplemental material (the soundtrack as a download would be great but probably not very likely) but if they don't having them in one set will be nice.

The only real way I'll re-buy is if both parts are edited together to form one movie. I'll have to wait for a review or something before I make any decisions.

Typical Warner Brothers GREEDY BASTARDS make people spend twice as much buying their product in two installments. I knew I should have waited but if sales were poor they never would release this version. Warner Brothers SUCKS!!

Really glad to hear this... I've been meaning to pick up these, along with Batman: Year One, Superman Unbound, and the New Frontier on Blu-ray (and get Gotham Knight to upgrade from my DVD). I was worrying about finding slips for Batman TDKR pts. 1 and 2 but this takes care of that.

Been waiting for this. Hoped that they would release a combo pack of both parts once the second part came out. That's why I held off buing either part

I would've gladly paid about $40-50 if this had come out initially (I'm well aware that's not a great business decision, though). Splitting the film into two parts didn't bother me in the slightest. It means we got the film as close as possible to the book. I really wish they could go back and do the same treatment to The New Frontier.

It does bother me a little that this is coming out so soon, but I guess I should've anticipated it. I'll still probably pick it up.

"Experience Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Parts 1 & 2 as one seamless epic film." Doesn't say anything about additional scenes, but it will be a new cut at least.
