Zack Snyder’s upcoming project Batman vs. Superman may be taking its inspiration from the popular 1996 DC Comics mini-series Kingdom Come. 

Ever since Batman vs. Superman was first announced, we’ve all suspected that director Zack Snyder and writer David S. Goyer would be basing their story on one of the numerous Superman and Batman co-starring comic tales. Many fans figured it would most likely be Frank Miller’s iconic Dark Knight Returns finale. The new rumor that the Man of Steel sequel will be using the well-regarded comic book mini-series Kingdom Come as the movie’s general inspiration comes from Screen Rant, based on a tweet from WB producer Daniel Alter.

Daniel Alter @DAlter007  : Can't wait for #BatmanvsSuperman.. #batfleck semi-retired/not speaking to Robin anymore...Controlling drones from the batcave.”

The idea that Kingdom Come might be the basis for the film seems to fit the rumors and information we have so far. »
