View Full Version : Darren Aronofsky to write/direct next Batman
21st Mar 02, 9:52 PM
It's going to interesting to see a Batman film from the man who brought us Requiem for a Dream and Pi.
This isn't final, though. WB might decide to do Batman: Beyond instead. I hope that doesn't happen.

hey, i like Beyond. :mad:

Please, can't they just think of a new movie instead?!

Batman Beyond kicks ass. It's got style.

That aside, I think the prospect of Darren Aronofsky (http://us.imdb.com/Name?Aronofsky,+Darren) directing the new Batman film (http://us.imdb.com/Title?0261557) is a rather appealing one, for two reasons:
1) Aronofsky has the visual panache to pull off the extremely stylised gothic world of Batman (as Tim Burton (http://us.imdb.com/Name?Burton,+Tim) did); in addition to this, his distinctive visual style will distance the substance of the film from previous efforts (particularly the dire Schumacher (http://us.imdb.com/Name?Schumacher,+Joel)-helmed duo).
2) His affinity for tortured heros also makes him a good choice for the job (see: Max Cohen (http://us.imdb.com/Quotes?0138704) in Pi (http://us.imdb.com/Title?0138704)).
I also hear good things about the comic which the film will be based on (Batman: Year One by Frank Miller (http://us.imdb.com/Bio?Miller,+Frank+(II))); not having read it myself I can't give an opinion, but I know that some consider it the best Batman comic.
You can find some more stuff about the film here (http://www.upcomingmovies.com/batmanyearone.html) and here (http://www.comics2film.com/ProjectFrame.php?f_id=7), and a load of other links here (http://www.cinecon.com/movies.php3?m=batman).

Personally I've always found the cartoons more in the mood compared to Batman movies... which always seemed so....

Lousy? Rotten? Boring? Sleepinducing?

the first two were classics, but let's face it, the next few ones...well....
...sucked ass. Yeah, that's the ticket.

it could go either way.....
it depends on how much emphasis and detail they put into the Lt. Gordon character
he is really one pillar of the brilliant duality of the comic
and the best performance would come from that actor, he's even more tortured than wayne, bringing a pregnant wife to the most dangerous city in the world...what should he choose? his instinct to protect his family or his longing to make a difference in this corrupt pile of dogshit called Gotham

I just watched Pi and I didn't think much of it, at all. In fact I thought it was concentrated crap.

I like Pi.

The first two Tim Burton Batmans were great. Then Joel Schumacher took over and turned it into "Disco Batman" with all those stupid dance numbers and neon dazzle and drove it into the ground.
