Miller's story had Batman fake-killing himself only to emerge later on the underground. He beat Superman's ass w/ man made Kryptonite, w/ the help of Green Arrow/Ollie Queen.
Meanwhile Marvel took their time and gave us Black Panther(a minute ago in the first trailers) and then waited to drop the Web-Head, single handedly shutting down DC's shine.

Wow, Batmon, Daredevil (2004)? That's the film that put me off comic adaptation movies for 10+ years despite being into comics for a good part of my life. What redeems that movie?? What redeems Affleck?Did you read Miller's run on Daredevil?I just loved the sleep deprivation scene and all the in between personal times Matt Murdock goes through. Painkiller pills and rippin out loose teeth. They still dont do that stuff in any of these films. Bale stitching himself up after the dog attack in The Dark Knight is one.But i understand why folks hate the film. Director's Cut is the essential version vs the Theatrical.
Another month, another superhero movie staggers to the silver screen, lurching under the weight of its own self-importance, groaning with the expectations of fans, and burdened with a nine-figure marketing budget. I am, of course, talking about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, to give it its full, clunkingly portentous title.
Can we all please grow up? Can we acknowledge that Marvel and DC have scraped right though the bottom of the barrel? Can we call time on superhero films? Films which are too dark for kids the comics were originally written for, yet too dumb for any thinking adult.
I saw Antman recently and thought that really hit the mark.
Curious to see what the Dr. Strange movie looks like. Just found this 1978 version - ha! Anyone seen it?
