Warner Brothers has released yet another clip from their upcoming BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, PART 1. This clip features a little humor, courtesy of the sarcastic wit of Bruce Wayne's (Peter Weller) loyal butler, Alfred.

Alfred is voiced by Radio Hall of Fame commentator/talk show host Michael Jackson. Previously, Jackson has provided the voice of the esteemed Guardian, Ganthet for the DCU animated film, GREEN LANTERN: EMERALD KNIGHTS.

BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, PART 1, the next entry in the popular, ongoing series of DC Universe Animated Original Movies, arrives September 25, 2012 from Warner Home Video as a Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD, On Demand and for Download. The PG-13 film is produced by Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation.

Wow... Bruce Wayne's voice... wow..  He just didn't sound right.  Guess I'm too used to Kevin Conroy

I agree, Peter Weller was a bad choice. I guess they are going for name recognition. This could be the first major misstep by DC animation.

How old is Alfred supposed to be? He'd be ancient by now but hey, it's fiction.

i guess that the only thing DC is good at is making toons, and even in that the only good thing going for them is the same shit bat crap..

If I was the type to pirate a movie I would say the acting in this movie was atrocious and Jay Oliva should be shot.  Of course I would never pirate a movie so I can't say that.  Also Bruce Wayne looks about 20 years older then Sylvester Stallone, even though Sly is in his mid 60's and this Bruce Wayne is supposed to be in his mid 50's.

Alfred is about 20 years older than Bruce...

In DKR Bruce is in his late 40s early 50s, so Alfred is prolly in his late 60s early 70s...

 Bunyon, I think you are off by at least 10 years.  My recollection of the Frank Miller original was Batman/Bruce has been gone ffrom the scene for roughly 10 years and is now in his mid to late 50s. 

Freestrike: If Batman was not fictional, if you were to compare Sly to Bruce, Sly only played a toughman on film. Bruce spent how many years punishing his body?  It takes its toll.

Watched this last night and today again. Thought it was great. Would have been better to have Kevin Conroy back as Bats but Weller did okay. I thought it was well done and the Robin character really stole the show for me at least. Anyway it is worth watching, perhaps owning if you are huge Batman fan.
