Watch a scene from 'Batman: Year One'
Long before director Christopher Nolan breathed new life into the Batman movie franchise, comic book legend Frank Miller returned the Caped Crusader to his gritty crime-fighting roots in "Batman: Year One."
The 1987 comic was among those, along with Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns," that revived the character, erased the memory of the campy 1960s TV series starring Adam West and directly influenced and led to Tim Burton's "Batman."
Now the two media are coming together. "Batman: Year One" has been developed into a DVD that closely mimics the comic book. Take a look at one of the scenes, above. The DVD will be available for download on Oct. 11 and on DVD on Oct. 18.
