This Saturday's episode of The Batman is supposed to be a future story of Batman's later years. Rumour has it that it will be based on Frank Millar's classic work, The Dark Knight Returns. The episode will be set in 2027 and will guest star Barbara Gordon (Batgirl) as Oracle and Dick Grayson (Robin) as Nightwing. Here is a still for you to see:

Some of you may remember an episode of The New Batman Adventures that focused on three kids telling each other their own unique interpretations of the Dark Knight. One of those interpretations was a Dark Knight Returns story (pictured to the right). While the style of the show lent itself well to Frank Millar's designs, I believe that the style of The Batman will bring some really cool visuals to the story. I can't wait to see it.
