Cartoon Animation
New Jersey Star-Ledger

Check out the animated sequel to “Dark Knight Versus The Hulk” of the Newark, N.J., Star-Ledger’s “Hunter’s Big Picture” series. In this edition, caricatured movie-goers settle into theatre seats for what they anticipate will be a pulse-pounding premiere of the Gotham City blockbuster. The sequel stars the same fierce (and not-so fierce) characters again played by none other than Obama, Hillary, and McCain. The movie-stealing line? When Hillary tugs on Obama’s cape and asks, “Is it my line yet?”
