I’ve been super psyched about Warner Bros. animated adaptation of Batman: The Dark Knight.  Warner Bros. has announced the voice cast, and it looks interesting to say the least.

Peter Weller (Robocop) will star as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Modern Family’s middle child Ariel Winter will play Robin.

Also in the cast are David Selby, the veteran actor who starred in the original Dark Shadows soap opera as well as the classic 1980s soap Falcon Crest; Wade Williams (Prison Break) as Harvey Dent/Two-Face; and Michael McKean as Dr. Wolper, the psychiatrist who releases the Joker from the insane asylum.

Batman: The Dark Knight Retuns is being directed by Jay Oliva, based on a script by Bob Goodman, which itself is based on the Frank Miller classic. While it will be interesting to see how the studio adapts this story into a film, it will be even more interesting to watch the audience (and sales) reaction when fans discover the movie is being broken into two parts. Part one arrives in this fall, with Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part Two arriving in 2013.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns will be the 15th (and 16th) films released as part of Warner Bros. DC animated direct to DVD movies.

      I don’t know, Conroy works for a Batman who’s 30-40, but for a Batman who’s 60+… Plus it’s Buckaroo Banzai.
