Full details are now in for the next DC Universe animated movie based on Frank Miller's graphic novel arriving this September.

As previously reported, Warner Brothers has slated 'Batman: The Dark Knight Returns - Part One' for Blu-ray on September 25.

It is ten years after an aging Batman has retired, and Gotham City has sunk deeper into decadence and lawlessness. Now, when his city needs him most, the Dark Knight returns in a blaze of glory. Joined by Carrie Kelly, a teenage female Robin, Batman takes to the streets to end the threat of the mutant gangs that have overrun the city. And after facing off against his two greatest enemies, the Joker and Two-Face, for the final time, Batman finds himself in mortal combat with his former ally, Superman, in a battle that only one of them will survive.

The Blu-ray/DVD/Ultraviolet Digital Copy combo pack will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: The Dark Knight Returns digital comic; Her Name is Carrie...Her Role is Robin; Batman and Me: The Bob Kane Story; Two bonus Batman cartoons from the WB vault; and a sneak peek at The Dark Knight Returns: Part Two.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray combo is $24.98.
