2012-10-25-DKR_InsideTank_410.jpgOf the seminal works that helped rescue Batman from the depths of camp, none may be more influential, or controversial, than Frank Miller's Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. The tale of an aged, embittered Bruce Wayne putting the cape and cowl on once more to become the enemy of crime -- and notably, most of law enforcement as well -- the graphic novel reintroduced the public to a caped crusader more dark, determined, and scary than any seen in the years preceding, and set the stage for both the Batman that would make his way onto movie screens, and onto TV sets in the form of a landmark, animated series.

In support of the release of the two-part, animated adaptation, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Warners brought to New York Comic Con two of the backbones of the DC animated universe, producer Bruce Timm and voice director Andrea Romano, for roundtables, and we were able to get their take on transitioning the darkest knight of all to animated life.
