The all-new clip from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part One featuring The Mutant Leader giving his televised declaration of war on Gotham City, Commissioner Gordon and Batman. The Mutant Leader is voiced by Gary Anthony Williams, best known for his recurring roles on “Malcolm in the Middle” and “Boston Legal,” as well as voiceovers as Riff Tamsom on “Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” Uncle Ruckus on “The Boondocks,” and Mongul in “Batman: The Brave and the Bold.” Williams’ casting as the bad-to-the-bone Mutant leader belies his true calling in comedy – he is co-founder and artistic director for the L.A. Comedy Shorts Film Festival in Hollywood.

Warner Home Video also recently announced new casting details for the two-part Batman: The Dark Knight Returns animated feature, with Michael Emerson cast as The Joker and Mark Valley as Superman.

A co-production of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, the direct-to-video Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part One animated feature debuts September 25th, 2012 on Blu-ray, DVD, OnDemand and for Download from Warner Home Video.
