In 1986 Frank Miller changed the way the world perceived Batman with “The Dark Knight Returns”. Time went on, and the image faded. However, in 2002, he returned to give us a clear reminder of how dark Gotham can really be with “The Dark Knight Strikes Again”. That anti-hero Bruce Wayne still lives in many of our minds.


Recently, The Nerdery received the news that Frank Miller is at it again with Brian Azzarello co-writing. Due to release in the fall of 2015, this is intended to be the finale of the Dark Knight series that began all those years ago. Entitled “The Dark Knight III: The Master Race”, it will also feature another showdown between our elderly caped crusader and Superman.


When asked about TDKIII, Frank said simply:“Batman remains my favorite comic book hero and a sequel to Dark Knight is going to be daunting, but we’ll do our best.”

Dan DiDio and Jim Lee, Co-Publishers for DC Entertainment, released this statement about the new Batman project by Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello.

“We are thrilled to have Frank back home at DC writing Batman. The story he and Brian have crafted is an astounding and triumphant conclusion to this seminal body of work which influenced and shaped generations of readers and creators alike.”

Azzarello also spoke up saying:

“It’s been an amazing experience collaborating with Frank these past six months. I think we have an epic story that these characters truly deserve.”

Currently, an illustrator has yet to be named. I personally, would like to see Frank himself behind the pencils. But, who knows what this new installment could bring.
