The live-action Batman movies of recent years have not been based on any Dark Knight stories. What they have done is to be inspired by specific elements of some of the most famous graphic novels.

Inspired by the iconic DC story of the mid-1990s, which was written by Jeph Loeb and drawn by Tim Sale, The Long Halloween, Part Two continues as the Holiday Killer runs free, Bruce Wayne is under the spell of the poisonous Poison. Ivy and Batman cannot be found anywhere. Freed by an unlikely ally, Bruce discovers the real culprit: Poison Ivy’s employer, Carmine Falcone. The Romans have seen their ranks decimated by Holiday and their business is spiraling out of control, forcing them to seek out partners they don’t like: Gotham City’s gallery of villains. Meanwhile, Harvey Dent is fighting battles on two fronts – he’s trying to end the mob war while fighting a struggling marriage. After an attack leaves Harvey horribly disfigured, the district attorney will unleash the duality in his mind that he has tried to suppress all his life. Now, as Two-Face, Dent decides to take the law into his own hands and execute those who have made amends to him, his family and all of Gotham. In the end, the Dark Knight must put together the tragic pieces that converged to create Two-Face, the Holiday Killer, Batman, and Gotham City itself.
Something that should not be omitted when talking about this matter is that the second part is going to be the last performance of Naya Rivera after her unexpected death last year. On both tapes, she voices Catwoman. On the other hand, this will be the first time Jensen Ackles will bring Batman to life. This has generated a lot of excitement and expectations among the fans.
Being based on one of the most beloved comic books by fans, expectations are tremendously high. Both trailers seem to point to a faithful and interesting adaptation of this story. Fans who were left wanting more by watching The Dark Knight will have the opportunity to see the story that inspired that movie. We may live long enough for DC to realize one day that it would be lucrative to make live-action adaptations of its most famous stories.
