7 Things You Might Not Know About ‘The Dark Knight Returns’
What good would a superhero movie be without some fun easter eggs to find? Batman: The Dark Knight Returns is no exception and if you look closely, you can find nods to other DC titles like Swamp Thing, V For Vendetta, The Watchmen and Crisis on Infinite Earths. These are just some of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which heads to Gotham with the animated Batman: The Dark Knight Returns!
In this film, former RoboCop star Peter Weller voices Batman, an older Dark Knight based on the version in Frank Miller’s seminal The Dark Knight Returns comic. It’s not the first time Weller and Miller have worked together either. After the success of the Dark Knight Returns comic, RoboCop producer Jon Davison reached out to Miller and asked him to write the screenplay for RoboCop 2. Miller even has a cameo as a chemist, though he doesn’t share any scenes with Weller’s RoboCop.
