PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Fearing that the actions of Superman are left unchecked, Batman takes on the Man of Steel, while the world wrestles with what kind of a hero it really needs.
During the opening battle in Metropolis, a gray horse is seen passing Bruce Wayne in the rubble. In the graphic novel "The Dark Knight Returns" Batman is seen riding a gray horse.
There was a time above... a time before... there were perfect things... diamond absolutes. But things fall... things on earth. And what falls... is fallen. In the dream, it took me to the light. A beautiful lie.
Batman and Superman are not friends in this, therefore Batman leaving the "cowl gap" in his armor makes no sense. In the comic book source novel for the film, Superman would not have struck Batman in the head or face because he had no desire to seriously injure or kill him due to their perceived friendship. The film itself, however, gives no reason for believing that this would not occur. While Superman isn't necessarily a murderer it showed one instance where he killed another who was simply threatening someone. Batman had no reason to believe that he wouldn't do the same to him and as such no reason to expose any part of his head to attack.
The opening credits are set within a flashback to young Bruce Wayne's childhood: his parents' death, their funeral and him encountering a cave of bats.
