I said the Batman: The Dark Knight Returns - Part 1 and Part 2 movies are extremely faithful to Frank Miller's Batman: The Dark Knight Returns graphic novel, I didn't say they are exactly the same entirely in every way. Films and comic books are two different mediums of course. There are minor alterations and some dialogue was added, some scenes were extended a bit. The majority of the moments and dialogue in the Part 1 and Part 2 films is pulled straight out of the graphic novel. And many the important points that were expressed in the internal thoughts in the novel are included in the spoken dialogue in the films. Also in the novel Green Arrow/Oliver Queen is seen with the Batboys, former members of the Mutants gang and Sons of the Batman gang, in the Batcave. Batman/Bruce Wayne faking his death appears to have been Oliver's idea. Oliver told Bruce that Superman/Clark Kent would leave Bruce alone by faking his death and staying quiet, and Oliver was right.
