January 31, 2013 - With Professor Haupt off performing meatball surgery in a dubious tenement, 75% of the iFanboy Animation Brain Trust returns for the second half of Warner Bros.’ Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. Boasting two of the most savage and iconic death matches in comic history, this is likely the pinnacle of ambition for Timm and his team. You might be shocked at just much survived the translation from page to screen, from swastika bosoms to Dutch himself, but just how important is that faithful hand? As with the first half, Conor, Paul and Chris are somewhat divided in their verdict, but some opinions just may actually have shifted in the intermission. Plus! Just how terrifying is Michael Emerson’s Joker? Should Clark button up that blouse when handling bald eagles? Just how stoked are we for upcoming outings Superman: Unbound and Flashpoint? What iconic stories remain untapped but deserving of the animated treatment?
