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.
“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
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
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.
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.
"It's funny, I think we were just sort of
We’re starting things off in the DC Extended Universe this week, and it’s now official that Patty Jenkins will be back in the director’s chair on Wonder Woman 2, with Jenkins putting pen to paper on a deal which has presumably made her one of – if not the – highest-paid female directors in Hollywood. Meanwhile, Jenkins has also enlisted Dave Callaham (The Expendables, Godzilla) to script the film,
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
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
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.
In a new interview
The post Darren Aronofsky Says the Joker Origin Movie Sounds Similar to His Batman Pitch appeared first on /Film.
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.
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
