Posted Tue Nov 6, 2012 at 12:00 PM PST by

The second half of the animated Frank Miller adaptation arrives on Blu-ray in January.

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers has slated 'Batman: The Dark Knight Returns - Part Two' for Blu-ray on January 29.

The Dark Knight, along with new sidekick Robin, have finally reclaimed Gotham City and allowed a ray of hope to penetrate the reign of terror that The Mutants had cast upon his city. With Batman back in the spotlight, the extended media coverage has awoken a far worse evil at Arkham Asylum, The Joker! Forever destined to be mortal enemies, The Joker has a diabolical scheme that may pull Batman down to the darkest levels of insanity. While on the horizon, a global catastrophe races towards Gotham and with it comes a familiar face, The Man of Steel, though this time he has Batman in his sights. Witness as the aging Dark Knight wages a tireless war against crime while proving that courage and will are indeed timeless.

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: All-New Featurettes; Sneak Peek at Superman Unbound; From the Vault: 3 Bonus Cartoons; and Digital Comic.

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