Gotham City's police are on a manhunt for the Batman as is the newly released Joker.

Has anyone heard of any plans for a unified release? Never liked it being split.

I'm sure they will, but they'll probably still be on two separate disks.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Deluxe Edition Coming This October

by SuperHeroHype

June 29, 2013

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will be bringing both parts of their animated adaptation of Frank Miller's classic work in one set this October. Blu-ray.com (via CBM) revealed the cover and release date for the collection which is simply titled Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Deluxe Edition. The set will include all the bonus features from the individual releases, and is expected to house some exclusive features. It will be released on October 8.

It’s been a decade since Bruce Wayne hung up his cape, following most of the other superheroes who had been forced into retirement. Facing the downside of middle age, a restless Bruce Wayne pacifies his frustration with race cars and liquor – but the bat still beckons as he watches his city fall prey to gangs of barbaric criminals known as The Mutants.

Peter Weller provided the voice of Batman/Bruce Wayne and is joined by David Selby as Commissioner Gordon, Ariel Winter as Robin, Wade Williams as Two-Face, and Michael McKean as Dr. Bartholomew Wolper. "Returns" also features Michael Emerson playing Batman's nemesis the Joker and Mark Valley as the Man of Tomorrow, Superman. The film is directed by Jay Oliva, written by Bob Goodman and executive produced by Sam Register and Bruce Timm.
