Yes this is based off Frank Millers work. This is not officially a prequel, like a prequel it does give us background that wasn't in the movies about Batman/Bruce Wayne. The movie is stated as ten years later (In the movie after the whole 2 face incident.) In this story Harvey is alive..(as he should of been in the movie.) Introducing a threat like Mutants would not have worked for the silver screen. Esp coming from Joker and Harvey Dent as villains. A different take on the plot is all this is. TDKRises is based heavily off TDKReturns. Many ways this shows us the differences in Nolans and Millers work.

I hated the voice actor for Commissioner Gordon

EDIT: I also liked the animated introduction of Carrie. Is it me or did this remind anyone of the Batman Gotham Knight? There was a scene where batman is driving a tank and beating up bad guys....I swear they took that scene and included it in this movie during the Mutant fight...
