I want you to remember my hand at your throat. I want you to remember the one man who beat you. Batman , but yes Director Zack Snyder even stated, "We're not adapting this thing, but it is the thing that will help us tell that story. One of the more perplexing things in the trailer is the inclusion of strange scenes in the desert, with armored soldiers wearing uniforms emblazoned with Superman's "S" symbol, seemingly bowing down to him. You might be a little disturbed by that, too.
Thank heavens for that, because if we don't see what motivated young Bruce Wayne to become the Batman, we might never know! That is, of course, a joke.

The Role Reverasl of Superman and Batman
When the series was collected into a single volume later that year, the story title for the first issue was applied to the entire series. The Dark Knight Returns tells an alternative story of Bruce Wayne, who at 55 years old returns from retirement to fight crime and faces opposition from the Gotham City police force and the United States government. The story introduces Carrie Kelley as the new Robin and the hyper-violent street gang known as the Mutants. The story also features the return of classic foes such as Two-Face and The Joker , and culminates with a confrontation against Superman , who works on behalf of the government. Bruce Wayne, aged 55, has given up the mantle of Batman after the death of Jason Todd ten years prior, and now lives as a bored bachelor. As a result, crime is running rampant throughout the city and a gang calling themselves "The Mutants " has begun terrorizing the people of Gotham. Upon being reminded of the deaths of his parents during a TV broadcast of The Mark of Zorro and watching news reports about the Mutants' crimes, Wayne returns to his role as a vigilante.
When Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice arrived in cinemas back in , it represented a landmark moment. Batman , which was in development between Batman is at once similar and wildly different to Batman v Superman. But did you know Batman nearly beat Shellhead to the punch on the digitized manservant front? The rationale behind this change was fairly straightforward. Superman vs. Batman is set at least five years ahead of the present day, by which time Alfred — who was no spring chicken, remember — had passed away.
Several other Batman veterans were also involved in the film. A deluxe edition combining both films was released on October 8, Ten years later, Gotham City is overrun with crime and terrorized by a gang known as the Mutants. The year-old Wayne maintains a friendship with year-old Police Commissioner James Gordon who knows Wayne was Batman , while the Joker Batman's archenemy has been catatonic in Arkham Asylum since Wayne's retirement. Arkham inmate and former district attorney Harvey Dent undergoes plastic surgery to repair his disfigured face. Although he is declared sane, he quickly goes into hiding following his release. Dent's disappearance, news stories of the crime epidemic, and the memory of his parents' deaths drive Wayne to become Batman once more.
