Good news, perhaps. Any hint about his early take on Batman (besides the Year One reference)? I listened long time ago he even liked my hometown Montevideo as a proxy of Gotham.

Reading the actual quotes it's not quite clear that he's actually talking about Batman, he could just as well be talking about another project that he's having trouble getting produced. I'd be all for him taking over Batman once Nolan's done (as long as he doesn't reboot the whole thing.)

I think you're right. I've seen other interviews where he's talked about his Noah's Ark script, and said that they were doing a graphic novel version in hopes that that would make it easier to get a movie made, that could be it.

I remember way back when his Batman: Year One script was the one they were going to go with, then finances fell through and Nolan took over. Glad to hear that even though the Nolanverse is getting shut down next year, we could still immediately get more Batman courtesy of Aronofsky.

David Arquette has gained weight.

I thought he was directing Superman.

 

Edit: NEvermind I'm thinking of Zack Synder.

First, we know that TDKR ain't the last Batman film we're going to have. No way. Too much money to be made from the character.

 

Second, as pointed out, this could be about the Noah's Ark idea. Also, if I'm reading the articles correctly, Aronofsky's talking about making a comic based off the script, yes, not a film?

 

Third - while what I recall of Aronofsky's take on Batman could, without too much trouble, be retrofitted to the Nolanverse, I'd rather WB reboot the series after TDKR. I love Nolan's take on the character, but I'm ready to see another version (as long as it doesn't devolve in shitty stuff like BATMAN & ROBIN). A Batman that actually likes being Batman, fer instance.

Will never happen but, man, what I wouldn't give to see Aronofsky's Batman Beyond.

I think it would be super kick-ass if all of our great directors took a shot at the same property.  After Aronovsky you could go with Fincher and then Scorsese could take a look at Dark Knight Returns. I love it when different great artists tackle the same or similar pieces.  Painters have responded to the work of other painters in very specific ways forever.  I want to see film makers challenge each other this way.

Who was that guy who said Mike Leigh should take over the Bat franchise? That was some funny shit and some of you are sounding like him.

This has nothing to do with Batman, and for the record, Arronofsky's Batman script was fucking retarded.

post #15 of 16

Yeah I am guessing Noah's Ark as well. The studios would be wise to pay attention based on the response of Darren's last two films.

He's going to have serious success under his belt after Wolverine, it's a sure bet to make its money back (and I'm sure the trailer will get people going).  How much money it makes above and beyond recouping cost will determine whether or not he gets to play around a la Nolan.  It's great news for Arronofsky fans that Black Swan has been raking it in.
