Life Imitates Art In The Dark Knight Returns Theater Shoot-Out
Yesterday a tragedy befell those attending a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises. In an unfortunate case of life imitating art, a scene in the 1986 graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns also depicts a shooting in a theater. The graphic novel was written by Frank Miller.
In the scene a mentally ill man who believes Led Zeppelin is trying to kill him opens fire in a movie theater, killing three.
