Returning as the voice of The Joker for the second half of the animated Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Michael Emerson speaks in the below video interviews about his take on the iconic villain. Check out his thoughts in the players below and catch Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2 on DVD, Blu-ray, and VOD on January 29.

With Gotham City back under his watchful eye, and accompanied by able sidekick Robin, Batman continues to battle crime – but his resurgence awakens a far worse evil at Arkham Asylum: The Joker. In the meantime, Superman has been dispatched by the President to halt Batman’s unsanctioned reign by whatever means necessary. Between the Joker’s diabolical scheme to drag Batman to the darkest levels of insanity, and the Man of Steel’s seemingly invincible physical presence, the Dark Knight must confront adversaries and allies simultaneously while maintaining the peace in Gotham City.

Weller, Emerson, and Valley are joined in the film by David Selby (The Social Network, Dark Shadows) as Commissioner Gordon, Ariel Winter (“Modern Family”) as Carrie/Robin, and Michael McKean (This is Spinal Tap) as Dr. Bartholomew Wolper. Also featured in the voice cast is Maria Canals-Barrrera (“Wizards of Waverly Place”) as new Commissioner Yindel, Paget Brewster (“Criminal Minds”) as Lana Lang, and Radio Hall of Fame member Michael Jackson as Alfred.
