BATMAN '89 #1 Preview: The Original Dark Knight's Story Continues With a First Look At Two-Face And Robin

Michael Keaton will reprise the role of Batman in The Flash, but the upcoming Batman '89 comic promises to continue this Dark Knight's story following the events of Batman Returns. Here's a preview...

The Flash looks set to pick up with Michael Keaton's Batman decades after we last saw him leap into action to protect Gotham City. However, DC Comics' Batman '89 promises to continue his post-Batman Returns story courtesy of Sam Hamm (who co-wrote those original two movies) and artist Joe Quinones. 

Throughout the course of the six-issue series (which kicks off on August 10), we'll pick up with the Caped Crusader, the version of Catwoman played by Michelle Pfeiffer, Billy Dee Williams' Harvey Dent as he transforms into Two-Face, and even the debut of a brand new Robin. 

We have no idea whether this will be canon or if the events of the comic book are going to be acknowledged in The Flash in any way, but it's definitely exciting for fans (DC Comics previously revealed that the series "will pull on a number of threads left dangling by the prolific director [Tim Burton]").

"Gotham City is being torn in two as citizens dressed as Batman and The Joker duke it out in the streets!" reads on official description for the series (that will be the equivalent of three full-length comics. "As D.A. Harvey Dent tries to keep the city together, he targets the one problem tearing it apart: Batman! And he'll get Bruce Wayne's help in taking down the Dark Knight!"

Check out some interior artwork below along with a first look at Robin suited up:
