DC Comics' most popular heroes are at each other's throats in The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2. The first trailer for the jaw-dropping finale has been released, and there are no holds barred. When the Caped Crusader goes rogue, there's only one person strong enough to stop him—Superman.

The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2 is the epic follow-up to last month's Part 1. The animated film features Superman as the person sent to stop Batman's ongoing destruction. He's lost his code of ethics. He's become a murderer. Batman even likens himself as a criminal. He exclaims, "Tonight we are the law. I am the law!"

When these two forces collide, only one will be left standing.

Check out the high-octane trailer below:
