Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has - from day one of its announcement - been described as an adaptation of Frank Miller's seminal Dark Knight Returns story arc. For all the mysteries about Dawn of Justice's story, it has become increasingly clear with each new revealed detail that the Dark Knight Returns influences are very direct. The Batman V Superman teaser had a version of the Dark Knight in an armored suit that looked like it was ripped right off the page of Miller's book.

Today we have some new rumors regarding the film - this time concerning the backstory of Ben Affleck's Batman. While this is all just rumor at this point, the discussion that follows should still be considered as a POTENTIAL SPOILER.
