Batman has not been seen for ten years. A new breed of criminal ravages Gotham City, forcing 55-year-old Bruce Wayne back into the cape and cowl. But, does he still have what it takes to fight crime in a new era?
There's a mystery afoot in Gotham City, and Batman must go toe-to-toe with a mysterious vigilante, who goes by the name of Red Hood. Subsequently, old wounds reopen and old, once buried memories come into the light.
Batman discovers a mysterious teen-aged girl with super-human powers and a connection to Superman. When the girl comes to the attention of Darkseid, the evil overlord of Apokolips, events take a decidedly dangerous turn.
After a 10 year absence, the Dark Knight has returned to Gotham to fight the Mutant threat. After defeating the mutants, he has taken control of a gang loyal to him in order to make Gotham a safer place. But, the Joker has decided to stop this, and fights against Batman in a deadly duel. Meanwhile, the Man of Steel is ordered to stop the Dark Knight because the government believes that his ways are wrong. As Batman fights the Joker, the Man of Steel prepares for his greatest fight.Written by

He'll still be weak, between the nuke and so little sunlight. Just how weak we'll see when he finds my first surprise.
Yeah, but how long you expect to last against him?
Boss. I'm trying to get the plan here. I mean, you gonna die tonight or what?
Figure I will.

Batman is my number one superhero, Always and Forever. I always follow movies, TV shows or video games, and everything came out about batman, with Scrutiny. And I'm not totally cool with making characters different than usual. Specially comic Superheroes, Specially seniors of them, and this "Specialty" is even more with The Dark Knight. I watched both part of "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns" with that background, And I realized; When they make it right... WOW! it could be Glorious! We can see this Glory and Greatness in this 150 minutes of "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns". I enjoyed watching these two parts. It was like something I was waiting for, for a long time.
