One of the most memorable and brutal scenes in Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns is the final battle between Batman and The Joker towards the end of the book’s second act. It’s a fight that brought a level of violence to Batman’s world that we usually don’t see in the comics, and it ends in a way that nobody saw coming.

And in Warner Brothers’ animated adaptation of the story, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns – Part 2, which goes on sale today, this scene is meticulously recreated in cartoon form. Now you can take a brief look at the battle in the clip above. And if you want to see the whole thing, be sure to pick up for DVD or Blu-ray today.
