Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced that the second part to Batman: The Dark Knight Returns will be available on Blu-ray, DVD, On Demand, and Digitally Download on January 29, 2013. Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2 is the conclusion that’s based on Frank Miller’s work of the same name.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2 follows Batman and Robin as they protect Gotham City once again. With Batman back in action, the Joker, still in Arkham Asylum, is planning to make a comeback. Not only will Batman have to battle the Gotham Prince of Crime, but he’ll also have to face against Superman, who’s under orders from the President to stop him at all cost.

Michael Emerson (Person of Interest, Lost) and Mark Valley (Human Target, Fringe) will be voicing the Joker and Superman, respectively. Coco himself, Conan O’Brien, will be voicing talk show host Dave Endochrine. Peter Weller, AKA RoboCop, will return as Bruce Wayne/Batman, with David Selby (The Social Network) as Commissioner Gordon, and Ariel Winter (Modern Family) as Carrie/Robin. Jay Oliva (Man of Steel, Green Lantern: Emerald Knights) is helming the project with Bob Goodman as the screenwriter.

  • Standard and high definition versions of the feature film
  • UltraViolet
  • Sneak Peek at Superman: Unbound, the next DC Universe Animated Original Movie
  • Featurette – “The Joker: Laughing in the Face of Death” – An all-new featurette.  A fitting tribute to the Joker, giving perspective as to why this engrossing character is the true arch nemesis of Batman.
  • Documentary – “Superman vs. Batman: When Heroes Collide” – An all-new documentary. Batman and Superman have a long history of friendship and conflict. Batman: The Dark Knight Returns brought an end to that conflict. This is the story behind that battle.
