Most of have seen the Batman VS Superman trailer, and more and more people are starting to see the connection to Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns. The question is no longer “Is that where this story will come from?” But rather, “How similar will they be?”


Zack Snyder has said outright that it would not be a direct representation of the graphic novel. It could be assumed, however, that it will take a lot of inspiration from The Dark Knight Returns.


Rumors have begun to fly stating that we will be seeing a Bruce Wayne who has retired due to a “Death in the Family”. ( For those that are unaware, “A Death In the Family” is a particular Batman arc in which The Joker kills, the then Robin, Jason Todd.) Seeing a stranger demolish half a city in an all out alien duel, Bruce dons the cowl once more.


It has also been rumored that we will see glimpses of The Joker in Dawn Of Justice. This rumor gives a bit more credit to the last. Seeing as how they are glimpses, we very well may see him in flashbacks of Jason Todd’s murder.


Speaking hypothetically, if the rumors are true, DoJ will be  combination of A Death In The Family and The Dark Knight Returns. If they turn out to be false, I still doubt anyone will be dssappointed by the result.
