I think all Batman movies are based on DC stories/comics (I don't know about comics thing much).

So is Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice also based on some story (story about Batman seeing Superman as threat to humanity and eventually making him against Superman) OR the director/producer just wanted some imaginary fight and conflict between these 2 favorite superheroes to lure audience?

I mean was it director/producer's own imagination?

  • While the question is framed differently, the answer will end up being a duplicate of this here. Oh and if you aren't a comic book guy but want to see the Dark Night Returns story, I highly, highly recommend the two part animated movie.

Most of it comes from the Dark Knight Returns. The events of the fight are a strong parallel to the battle between old man Batman and Supes. The motives and ends of the fights are completely different, however.
