Darren Aronofsky Was Supposed To Make A Batman Movie
ComicBookMovie Once upon a time, when we were forced upon the likes of such film as Batman and Robin, Warner Brothers approached a unique man named Darren Aronofsky to make a Batman film for them. The script was to be penned by Darren Aronofsky and Frank Miller and within this script, Bruce Wayne wasn't a billionaire playboy but was homeless man, living on the streets of the ruthless Gotham City. Alfred is an African-American mechanic referred to Big Al. And Batman drives a souped up Lincoln Towncar. In this world, Bruce Wayne gets the idea of Batman because when he beats up wrong-doers down on the streets of Gotham he punches them with a mighty ring on his finger bearing the initials of his father: Thomas Wayne… T-W… which some how ends up looking like a bat symbol on the foreheads of said criminals… hence The Batman. Aronofsky has said he still wishes to adapt this story into a comic AND/OR eventually make it into a movie, BUT as much as I or any other DA fan would love to a Batman film by him, I think the WB needs to hand him Batman: Earth One or a Court of Owls movie because since the Nolan's have put their magically touch on Bat's, I don't think I could really see someone else taking on the "regular" universe Bat Family.
