Cool Short: The Dark Knight Returns

Adapted from Issue #1 of Frank Miller’s seminal 1986 comic series, filmmaker Wyatt Weed offers his unofficial fan’s take on the Batman mythos.

Following the death of Robin at the hands of the Joker, Bruce Wayne (Weed) hung up the cowl and cape 10 years ago. But now Gotham City is in the grip of a violent crime wave, and the venerable 55-year-old billionaire has to decide if the time is right for the Caped Crusader’s return.

The Dark Knight Returns filmed for 24 days over a 17-month period from June of 2015 through October of 2016. Shot on a shoestring budget of $2500, it features locations in and around the St. Louis metro area.

This is by no means perfect, but considering the budget everyone involved has done a great job. It is also good to see them sticking to the comic.
