Default Re: The Official Rate/Review Thread for TDKR (TAG SPOILERS!!!) - Part 3

I'm surprised that I haven't seen too many comparisons to the Dark Knight Returns in the posts I have read.... Bruce coming out of retirement for his obsession. Alfred trying to discourage him from doing so because of age. The almost exact scene with the older cop telling the younger one to "sit back and enjoy the show". Getting his ass kicked and coming back to beat the opponent like he did against the Mutants (yes, I know it's based on Knightfall, but it's still there.) And ultimately faking his death and trusting the future of Gotham in others.

I've read a lot of comments about this Bruce being so different from the one in the comics but I have to disagree. Yes, he is a different character than the Bruce/Batman in normal canon, but he is very similar to Frank Miller's version in the Dark Knight Returns.
