Frank Miller Announces Fourth ‘Dark Knight’ Series Ahead Of The Thirds Release

The addition of a fourth book to the series is a surprise, but not entirely unexpected.

Comics writer Frank Miller has revealed that he’ll be going to the ‘Dark Knight’ well for a fourth time.

The announcement comes ahead of the release of his third story in the critically acclaimed ‘Dark Knight’ Batman series of comics, which centres on a much older Batman than we see in any of the films or TV series.

Miller told that what had been referred to as a trilogy — with 2001 series ‘The Dark Knight Strikes Again’ as the middle chapter — has apparently been expanded. “I thoroughly applaud what [Brian Azzarello, Miller’s co-writer on Dark Knight III is] doing,” said Miller, “but now that he’s doing his [story], it’s now a four-part series. I’m doing the fourth.”

The addition of a fourth book to the series is a surprise, but not entirely unexpected. Beyond the ‘Dark Knight’ series DC has plans to release ‘ Dark Knight Returns: The Last Crusade’, co-written by Miller and Azzarello with art by John Romita Jr., a one-off comic book filling in backstory from the original 1986 miniseries, suggesting a willingness to expand the series.

The first issue of the eight-issue Dark Knight III: The Master Race will be released Nov. 25.
