Frank Miller On Zack Snyder Referencing ‘The Dark Knight Returns’ In His DCEU Movies

The Dark Knight Returns creator Frank Miller candidly discussed what he thinks about Zack Snyder referencing his seminal work in the DCEU.

It’s no surprise that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is influenced by Frank Miller’s iconic The Dark Knight Returns series. The DC Extended Universe film took direct panels from Frank Miller’s comic and propped them up on the big screen. Batman’s suit in the film was also similar to the one seen in Frank Miller’s run. And Batman himself was also older, not unlike The Caped Crusader from The Dark Knight Returns. Zack Snyder has previously shared his love for The Dark Knight Returns on numerous occasions but Frank Miller has mostly kept quiet on the DCEU director’s admiration for his work.

In a recent chat with The Beard and The Bald Movie Podcast (via ScreenRant) Frank Miller opened up about what he thinks of Zack Snyder and how he was influenced by The Dark Knight Returns.

“A few years have gone by since all this started, okay? And at first, my reaction was to be very territorial and all that. Now I’ve kind of sat back and with a much deeper breath and longer view on the whole thing and all I can say is: this is great. I came in and I came up with my idea for The Dark Knight Returns and that basically was the big splash I made, which started my whole career going. And since then I’ve seen the two fields collaborate back and forth.”

“I benefited greatly from Dark Knight Returns and so have they and continue to. And it can only be looked at as a healthy relationship.”

That’s perhaps one of the best diplomatic answers we’ve ever heard. It’s great that Frank Miller is looking at Zack Snyder’s infatuation with his work in a positive manner, and it’s something that the fans have been hoping for themselves. However, now that Snyder is seemingly out of the DCEU, Frank Miller’s influence seems to be weighing thin as the franchise veers towards the zaniness of the multiverse.

And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Directed by Zack Snyder, Batman v Superman stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, and Holly Hunter.

Loki star Sophia Di Martino hopes to team up with Scarlet Witch should Sylvie appear in Doctor Strange 2.

Sophia Di Martino’s Sylvie was introduced to fans earlier this year in Loki, a series that saw the titular character running into alternate versions himself called “variants”. One such variant was Sylvie, who had beef with the Time Variant Authority, an organization that oversees all of time.

This major plot twist is set to feed into Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness.
