Deadly Class TV series gets some interest from Syfy

Jim Dandy Kirsten Howard Sep 28, 2017

The cogs on the TV adaptation of the much-loved Deadly Class comic have started moving again, over at Syfy...

Rick Remender and Wes Craig's Deadly Class, which was announced as being under development for television at the last San Diego Comic Con by Marvel golden boys the Russo brothers, has been optioned to pilot by Syfy, according to a report in Deadline.

The comic, which follows a group of teenagers as they attend a high school for assassins and make their way through San Francisco's late '80s punk scene, has been published by Image Comics since 2014. The book focuses on Marcus Lopez, a homeless Nicaraguan teen who gets recruited for the school. His first decision as a student is to kill Ronald Reagan, and that's somehow the least bad decision he makes in the entire book.

The newly-ordered pilot will be written by Remender and Miles Feldstott.

Darren Aronofsky would like to direct a Superman movie

Earlier this month Kingsman: The Golden Circle director Matthew Vaughn revealed that he’d had talks with Warner Bros. about potentially helming a Man of Steel sequel, and now Darren Aronofsky has become the latest filmmaker to throw his hat into the ring for a Superman movie.

“I mean, you know, Superman would always be interesting, but they’re already deep into reinventing him, so that’s not going to happen for a long time,” the mother! director told he told CinePop when asked if he had any ambitions in the superhero genre. “A lot of the great superhero titles are done, people have used them up. So now it’s kinda characters that aren’t as interesting. You never know. We’ll see what comes my way.”

Aronofsky did spend several years attached to a reboot of the Batman franchise back in the early 2000s, where he worked with

Darren Aronofsky Would Be Interested In Directing A Superman Movie

Before Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was even a glint in Zack Snyder’s eye, Darren Aronofsky was plotting to make a big screen version of Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One. Over the years, though, we’ve seen many proposed superhero movies fail to make it past the development stages, and sadly, this was one of those.

Unfortunately, the studio became more enamoured with the idea of a big-budget project featuring both the Caped Crusader and Man of Steel rather than a low-budget Batman solo film. And although Batman V Superman wouldn’t see the light of day (in that form anyway) for quite a while, many of the components of Batman: Year One would find their way into Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins. That film ended up being quite different to what Aronofsky had in mind, of course, and as such, many still wonder how things would

Heroes to zeroes: the Batman and Superman movies that never were

Thanks to the current trend for ‘what if’ comic-book flicks, abandoned concepts from Tim Burton and Darren Aronofsky now look far less bizarre

Hollywood history is littered with the corpses of unmade superhero movies, destined only ever to be mentioned when a franchise slips into decay and is looking for a fresh way to breathe life into Superman, Batman, Spider-Man or whichever masked titan has currently hit the skids. And so it is perhaps inevitable this week that we are once again locked in the DC mortuary, staring at what might have been if Tim Burton and Darren Aronofsky had been allowed to pursue their respective superhero visions in what now seems like another era entirely.

Few would argue that either the caped crusader or the man of steel is currently top of the DC tree, following the meat-headed, convoluted mess that was last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Darren Aronofsky Wanted Joaquin Phoenix as Batman in Year One

Darren Aronofsky Wanted Joaquin Phoenix as Batman in Year One
The history of Batman on screen is an interesting one, with many various iterations of the character having appeared in various versions of the franchise. However, perhaps just as compelling as what we have seen in Batman movies is what we never got to see. For example, Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan) had a pitch for a Batman: Year One movie at one point. And who did he want to play the Caped Crusader? Joaquin Phoenix.

Much has been made of Darren Aronofsky's Batman: Year One movie that never was over the years, but this is the first we've heard of the director wanting to cast Joaquin Phoenix in the lead role. Aronofsky made the reveal while speaking to Yahoo Movies in order to promote his new movie, Mother! Here's what he had to say about it.

Meanwhile, Jenkins has also enlisted Dave Callaham (The Expendables, Godzilla) to script the film,

Joaquin Phoenix Would Have Starred in Darren Aronofsky’s Batman: Year One

There’ve been many scrapped Batman movies over the years, but one of the most fascinating is Darren Aronofsky’s Batman: Year One.

Loosely based on Frank Miller’s seminal comic book, the film would have told a radically different origin story for the Dark Knight than what we’re used to. Notable elements include depicting Bruce Wayne as a street punk with hockey pads and a baton and Alfred the butler being recast as a young African-American car mechanic.

While promoting his latest effort, Jennifer Lawrence vehicle mother!, Aronofsky revealed some new interesting details on what he would have done with the Caped Crusader. It turns out he even had a specific actor in mind to play the part.

“I always wanted Joaquin Phoenix for Batman,” said the director.

Of course, this isn’t the first time Phoenix has been linked with a superhero role. We’ve previously seen

12 Actors Who Were Almost Batman

12 Actors Who Were Almost Batman
Batman has dominated movie screens since at least 1989. An there have been some major players vying for the role ever since. Ben Affleck put it best: "Batman is the Greatest Part in the World." In the summer of 2017, the actor and Oscar winning screenwriter and director shrugged off rumors he was set to exit the Dceu, as work continued on Zack Snyder's Justice League. But what if someone else was coming in to take over the role. Who would it be?

Battfleck turned out to be the best received part of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which reintroduced the Caped Crusader to movie going audiences, following the critical and box-office success of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy. There have been numerous big screen versions of Gotham City's vigilante since he made his debut in Detective Comics and even more false starts and abandoned projects. Today, we're looking

Darren Aronofsky Wanted Joaquin Phoenix to Star in His R-Rated ‘Batman: Year One’

  • Collider.com
Darren Aronofsky’s Batman: Year One is about as controversial as one might expect from the filmmaker. Warner Bros. brought in the director following the success of Pi in 1998 and the collapse of the Batman franchise with Batman & Robin. His initial pitch was an adaptation of The Dark Knight Returns with Clint Eastwood as old Batman, but Warner Bros. was more interested in an origin story, which led Aronofsky to try and adapt Miller’s Batman: Year One. However, in Aronofsky’s take, everything is boiled down to its essentials. Basically, Batman is a crazy person in hockey …

More Episode IX delays, Nightwing update, The Lego Movie 2 details and more – Daily News Roundup

More Delays Far, Far Away

With the Star Wars: Episode IX getting a new script and a pushed back release date, it should come as no surprise that the movie’s production has been pushed back too. Variety are reporting that Lucasfilm has now delayed the start of principal photography on Episode IX. Originally slated to begin in this coming January, cameras will now start rolling in June 2018.

Return Of Han?

Despite his conclusion in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, GQ Magazine thought to ask Harrison Ford about a possible return to the galaxy far, far away. “Um, I mean, I’m finished with Star Wars if Star Wars is finished with me,” said Ford. And when asked if Star Wars was finished with him, Ford responded: “I can’t imagine it. But it is science fiction.” Read more here.

Darren Aronofsky Says the Joker Origin Movie Sounds Similar to His Batman Pitch
Before Christopher Nolan gave Batman a gritty makeover and Zack Snyder doubled down on the grimdark take, there was Darren Aronofsky and his shelved Batman: Year One project. The project, which drew inspiration from Frank Miller‘s similarly-titled comic book, envisioned a Travis Bickle-like Bruce Wayne who grew up an orphan in the crime-ridden streets of Gotham, donning a ski mask, cape, and […]

Darren Aronofsky says the Joker origin film resembles his pitch for Batman

After the failure of Batman and Robin, Warner Bros. put The Caped Crusader to bed indefinitely. We all know that. What is less known, is that around 2002 the studio began feeling things out again. Spider-Man was making waves. Bryan Singer’s X-Men was well received, with a sequel on its way. Warner Bros. probably felt like they were sitting on a gold-mine with Batman (they were), and began having dialogue with directors around Hollywood concerning ways to bring Batman back from the dead.

One of those directors was Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream, Mother). Well known to Batman fans, but maybe less known to the average moviegoer, is that Aronofsky had a very detailed pitch for a film loosely adapted from Batman: Year One. The pitch was wild. Gritty. A Bruce Wayne that we’ve never seen on screen before, and definitely not a risk Warner Bros.

Darren Aronofsky’s Batman Film Would’ve Been Similar To The Joker Movie

Before Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was even a glint in Zack Snyder’s eye, Darren Aronofsky was plotting to make a big screen version of Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One. Over the years, though, we’ve seen many proposed superhero movies fail to make it past the development stages, and sadly, this is one of those.

Although the script was co-written by Miller, the movie would have played fast and loose with the character’s history. It would have seen Bruce made homeless after his parents are killed and taken in by African-American mechanic Little Al (a version of Alfred). Rather than the usual billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne, we would have got a gritty, street-level Batman, who drove around in a souped-up Lincoln Convertible and whose gadgets consisted of throwing acid in people’s faces.

Speaking about what could’ve been a while back, Miller had this
