They need to look to the stories that Nolan didn't touch. I don't mind the last part of Returns as long as it's just the Superman stuff, but they really need to move away from the Nolanverse. That's the whole point of rebooting an entire franchise, so you do something drastically different from what came before. Even down to its influences.
They took some story elements from TLH sure, but the portrayal of Batman was pretty different. The Nolan Batman was too realistic. If they're going for a more comics oriented and less realistic Batman, the perfect place to start looking is Hush and TLH, same with Court of Owls.
