“The Dark Knight Returns”
Starring Bruce Willis; director Rian Johnson
The Plot: This long-awaited direct film adaptation of Frank Miller’s seminal 1986 graphic novel would re-team the “Looper” star and director to finally give us the grizzled, 55-year-old Batman coming out of retirement to fight crime in dystopic future Gotham City. That is, if the government and Superman himself (Jon Hamm) don’t have something to say about it. With the help of his inexperienced new Robin in the form of 13-year-old Carrie Kelly (Hailee Steinfeld) and old (REALLY old) pals Alfred (Michael Gambon) and Jim Gordon (Nick Nolte), he’ll fight mutant gangs and The Joker (Robin Williams) in order to take back the night.
