DC All Access has released a new video that features DC Entertainment co-publishers Jim Lee and Dan Didio going deep into detail about the upcoming final installment of the famed Dark Knight Returns trilogy, titled Dark Knight III: The Master Race, exploring the beginning of the series, as well as revealing some previously unseen art by series artist Andy Kubert.
In regards to the origins of the Dark Knight sequel, DiDio reveals that the story originated when DC contacted Frank Miller about bringing Carrie Kelly into the New 52 continuity. Miller then suggested doing a new story in his continuity instead. Ultimately, DiDio decided to do a Dark Knight Universe series showing many characters set in that continuity. The idea became Dark Knight III: The Master Race.
As for Andy Kubert’s interior art, Lee gave great praise to Kubert’s ability to emulate Miller’s storytelling prowess, also calling on inker Klaus Janson, who inked the original Dark Knight Returns series, as a throughline for Miller’s Dark Knight continuity.
