Frank Miller Returning To Batman With “Dark Knight 3”
That’s right Bat-fans, Frank Miller, the celebrated writer and artist of the 80’s classic Dark Knight Returns, is himself returning, to the franchise that made him a legendary name in the comic book world. Frank Miller’s epic 80’s mini-series changed the way the world now perceives Batman, Miller’s Batman is the dark and broody character we have now, a Dark Knight as opposed to the 70’s and early 80’s Caped Crusader.
The original Dark Knight Returns is one of the most celebrated comic book stories of all time, sitting comfortably alongside other luminary greats like Watchmen and V for Vendetta. Its 2001 sequel, The Dark Knight Strikes Again, isn’t as highly regarded but is still a fun ride, just nowhere near the revolutionary brilliance of the original. Dark Knight 3: The Master Race will be released in Autumn this year, marking the original series’ 30th anniversary.
