Batman & Conan! Has a nice ring to it, doesn't it? Unfortunately, we may be waiting a long while before TV funnyman Conan O'Brien slinks into a costume and joins the Caped Crusader on a crime-fighting adventure, but we won't have to wait long to see him immersed in the Batman universe. Conan has joined the voice cast of Warner Bros./DC Entertainment's upcoming animated feature 'Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2'. So who will he be playing?
The Dark Knight Returns
A few months ago, Comic-Con 2012 in San Diego was packed with comic book nerds, cosplayers, TV and movie fanatics, and members of the press, all of whom were bustling from location to location trying to see as many events and panels as possible. Though we aimed to give you the best possible recaps of everything that happened during the private panels for 'The Walking Dead,' 'Game of Thrones,' Marvel Studios and the like, it sure would have made our jobs a lot easier to watch them streaming live from our laptops. That's something New York Comic-Con is trying to do better this year.
'Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2' is landing on Blu-ray and DVD in early 2013, which seems like an awfully long wait at the moment for Batman hungry fans. However, to satisfy our craving for the second installment, the 'Dark Knight Returns, Part 2' trailer is now online. Check it out after the break!
‘The Dark Knight Rises’ brought closure to Christopher Nolan’s vision of the Batman, which began with ‘Batman Begins’ and extended through ‘The Dark Knight.’ But it also created a gaping hole in the Batman landscape, as fans of the Caped Crusader wonder what they’re going to look forward to now that Nolan’s passion project has come to a close. We might have a suggestion.
You see, Christopher Nolan's hugely anticipated 'The Dark Knight Rises' isn't the end of Batman's on-screen missions. Warner Bros. has started the ball rolling on an animated version of Frank Miller's brilliant graphic novel 'The Dark Knight Returns,' and has zeroed in on casting … with a classic action-hero actor in the lead role of Bruce Wayne and his masked alter ego.
