I'd known about the upcoming animated adaption of The Dark Knight Returns for a while now, but that awareness receded somewhere into the back of my brain somewhere. Like Old Bruce in a bathrobe.
But this new trailer—via MTV Geek—is like "the rain on my chest," a baptism. A baptism of remembering.

Peter Weller's a great choice for a geriatric Batman and the look of the film approximates Miller's line drawing pretty well.

I, for one, cannot wait to recite all my favorite lines from Frank Miller's quote-tastic script word for word when this thing comes out. "You don't get it, boy. This isn't a mudhole... It's an operating table. And I'm the surgeon." The Dark Knight Returns Part emerges from the darkness and onto Blu-ray, DVD and digital download on September 25.
