Default Re: Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns Animated - Part 1

Not a fan of the original series all that much and I only bought this on Blu ray out of pure curiosity. That being said, Emerson was a great choice, especially the way he chose to perform his part. The Miller Joker in TDKReturns is more than a little, shall we say, sexually ambiguous? Emerson's line readings were spot on. This was a Joker who had some messed up feelings regarding the Batman. His "Darling" was perfect. (Before I get called a homophobe or the like I am in no way suggesting that homosexual people are "messed up" or that somehow The Joker having some psycho sexual fixation on Batman means that homosexual thoughts or feelings are wrong. This is the Joker we're talking about. Everything about him is messed up.)
