According to a recent report from The Independent, Warner Brothers and Man of Steel director Zach Snyder are currently in talks with The Dark
Marc Morrell's insight:

If they end up making a "The Dark Knight Returns" type of story in the next Superman/Batman movie, then they may have to make this the first R rating for a DC Movie. This wouldn't hurt them at the Box Office by any means. This is the story people want to see. We saw it as a cartoon already, with Bruce Timm's vision in The Dark Knight Returns, Parts 1 and 2. Live-action will not be easy, but it will be worth it, if they can pull it off.
