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

Darren Aronofksy Mourns His Lost ‘Taxi Driver’-Inspired ‘Batman’ Pitch

Darren Aronofksy Mourns His Lost ‘Taxi Driver’-Inspired ‘Batman’ Pitch
Imagine a “Batman” film starring Clint Eastwood driving around Detroit-like Gotham City in a souped up Lincoln Continental. Now imagine it’s a Darren Aronofsky film. As amazing as that sounds, it’s not hard to see why a studio wouldn’t go for it — especially fifteen years ago. When the “Mother!” director heard about the new “Mean Streets” inspired Joker spinoff produced by Martin Scorsese, he couldn’t help but wonder what could have been.

“I think we were basically – whatever it is – 15 years too early. Because I hear the way they’re talking about the Joker movie and that’s exactly – that was my pitch. I was like: we’re going to shoot in East Detroit and East New York. We’re not building Gotham. The Batmobile – I wanted to be a Lincoln Continental with two bus engines in it,” Aronofsky told First Showing. “We were all about

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

The 6 greatest ever Batmobiles

Dan Cooper Feb 20, 2017

Batman's wheels are almost as iconic as he is. But which of his Batmobiles is the finest?

Robin: “I want a car. Chicks dig the car.”

Batman: “This is why Superman works alone.”

Man, how we marvelled at the Dark Knight as he responded to Robin’s whinging about wanting wheels of his own in 1997’s Batman & Robin. Yes it was the opening scene of the movie and true, we’d already experienced a higher latex-clad buttocks to screen time ratio than in your average imported specialist German exotica but still, that line… it hinted at the beginnings of a shared universe where Batman and Superman might one day occupy the same screen, sending us into geeky raptures of possibility-flavoured wonderment.

Looking back at the garish daftness that followed, that first minute of the film was probably the best bit. We’d wait another 19years,

Frank Miller talks Darren Aronofsky’s aborted Batman: Year One movie

Before Christopher Nolan relaunched the Batman franchise with Batman Begins, Warner Bros. had enlisted Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream) for an adaptation of Frank Miller’s classic Batman: Year One, with Miller himself helping to pen the script.

Aronofsky’s plan was to “toss out everything you can imagine about Batman” and start afresh, with the duo collaborating on a dark and gritty script that would have seen a radical departure from the traditional Dark Knight continuity, and one which ultimately proved too dark for Warner Bros., who pulled the plug on the project.

During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Frank Miller has spoken about his work on the project, stating that:

“It was the first time I worked on a Batman project with somebody whose vision of Batman was darker than mine. My Batman was too nice for him. We would argue about it, and I’d say,

Here's Why Darren Aronofsky's 'Batman' Movie Never Happened

Here's Why Darren Aronofsky's 'Batman' Movie Never Happened
Batman too dark? Don't tell the rabid fan base that, they'll never believe it. Over the years, with Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy and this month's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and even Tim Burton's 1989 Batman to some degree, the caped crusader has edged closer and closer into the abyss, with each take darker than the next. But apparently director Darren Aronofsky, best known for his gritty critical hits Requiem for a Dream and Black Swan, was set to take Gotham's iconic vigilante to the depths of depravity. And that's why his Batman movie was doomed!

Batman has a very long and distinguished history on both the big and small screen. And he's been a fan-favorite since he was first introduced in the pages of Detective Comics back in 1939. But 1997's god awful Batman & Robin brought his silver screen career to a screeching halt. Before

According To Frank Miller His Batman Was “Too Nice” For Darren Aronofsky

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 we’ve seen many proposed superhero movies fail to make it past the development stages, and sadly, this is one of those. In a new interview with THR, Miller himself drops tons of details on why this project burned out.

According to Miller, the main problem between the pair was in how they viewed Batman. Most folks would agree that he’s a troubled, unorthodox, crime fighter, but for Miller, Aronofsky took that too far:

“It was the first time I worked on a Batman project with somebody whose vision of Batman was darker than mine. My Batman was too nice for him. We would argue about it, and I’d say, “Batman wouldn’t do that,

Batmobile Creator George Barris Dead

  • TMZ
George Barris, the creator of the amazing 1966 Batmobile and many other legendary whips ... has died. Barris' most famous car was surely the one Adam West drove during the "Batman" TV show. But he has a rich automotive history ... he designed the 'Munsters' Koach, the truck for "The Beverly Hillbillies" and the modified Dodge Charger for "Thunder Alley." The Batmobile sold at auction in 2013 for $4.62 million. Barris died early Thursday. We're told he'd been battling a brain tumor.

See Tim Burton's Batmobile in action in Batman: Arkham Knight
The Batmobile for Tim Burton's Batman movies is thundering its way towards Batman: Arkham Knight - and we've just gotten a look at what the vehicle can do.

Developer Rocksteady Studios has released video footage of the car in action, tackling courses based on the two Burton films.

The 1989 Batmobile is longer and thinner than its tank-like counterpart in the game, with lighter handling so corners can be taken with greater ease.

Two course are shown in the clip - the the Joker Parade and the Penguin's lair, which capture the look and feel of Burton's Gothic offerings.

The vintage Batmobile is included in the 1989 Movie Batmobile Pack Dlc, coming to Arkham Knight season pass holders on consoles next week.

There is no word on what the downloadable content is coming to the ill-fated PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight, which has required extensive patching to stamp out the

Lego DC Super Heroes – Jokerland Review

Gary Collinson reviews the Lego DC Super Heroes Jokerland (76035) set…

Last month, Lego expanded its DC Super Heroes line with two Batman-themed sets in The Batboat Harbor Pursuit (76034) and Jokerland (76035). Clocking in at 1037 pieces, including eight minifigures, the latter of the two transforms Gotham City’s amusement park into the nightmarish ‘Jokerland’, with the Caped Crusader taking to his Batmobile to rescue the teen heroes Robin, Starfire and Beast Boy from the clutches of the Clown Prince of Crime and his fiendish associates Harley Quinn, The Penguin and Poison Ivy.

Jokerland doesn’t have a main build as such, instead offering four separate fairground attractions (each with a macabre twist), along with a new version of the Batmobile. The four rides are all themed to their relevant villain, with Harley Quinn’s Wheels of Fire, Penguin’s Deadly Duckies, Poison Ivy’s Carnivore, and the Jokerland centrepiece, which also

Batman: Arkham Knight PlayStation 4 review

The final part of Rocksteady's Arkham trilogy is here, and it features a lot more Batmobile...

I think we can all agree that Batman: Arkham Origins was a bit of a misstep. It was decent, yes, but it did nothing for the series, and the content that what there was simply so-so. This is clearly not lost on original developer, Rocksteady, as the 'trilogy' is now at an end with the latest, and fourth game, Arkham Knight. Origins isn't counted, either due to its prequel status, or the fact is just wasn't as good. Whatever the case may be, here we have the culmination of Rocksteady's Batman vision, and possibly the best entry into the series yet.

H-bomb on wheels

Much has been made by Rocksteady of the major addition to Arkham Knight, and that's the Batmobile. With a world much lager in size than the previous games, Batman

8 Things You Need To Know About Batman V Superman’s Batmobile

Warner Bros.

The Batmobile is as iconic as Batman himself. First appearing in the pages of Detective Comics #27 in 1939, there has been any number of versions of it in the comic books over the decades, but it has remained a staple of the Caped Crusader’s world regardless of the design. It’s presence has been felt on the big screen too, and everyone has a favourite.

Whether it’s Tim Burton’s impractically shaped Batmobile or Christopher Nolan’s extremely realistic Tumbler though, there hasn’t yet really been a “perfect” take on the iconic vehicle.

That’s where Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice comes in. When Zack Snyder released the first official image on Twitter, fans were quick to point out that it’s stylistically the best version to date, and seeing it in action while the movie was being filmed only seemed to back that argument up.

"Batman v Superman" Trailer Details, Breakdown

More details on the teaser trailer launch for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" have arrived. Indie Revolver has posted a schedule of what will happen starting with the film's first one-sheet going online on Monday at 9am Us-pdt.

Then, an 'Enhanced' version of the trailer will screen in cinemas that night at 7pm. The show will run the trailer twice with director Zack Snyder doing an intro for both times. Then the 'Non-Enhanced' version of the trailer goes online worldwide from 9am Us-pdt on Tuesday.

No-one is quite sure what the difference between the versions will be. There's one small problem though - a bootleg of the complete trailer leaked online earlier today and is popping up on various blogs. Warners is pulling them down fast, but the big question is will this change their plans? I won't link bootlegs here, but here's a review/description of it:

The evolution of the Batmobile

With the announcement of a new Batmobile via some leaked photos and then Zack Synder’s Twitter account, we at Flickering Myth decided to look at the various incarnations of the The Dark Knight’s most iconic of accessories….

Batman #27

The Batmobile first debuted in DC ComicsBatman #27, a red convertible with nothing overly special in its functionality. But in an interesting piece of trivia, the term “Batmobile” was not used until Detective Comics #48 in 1941.

Batman ’66

Moving into the live action realm on our list is one of the most well-loved looks for people of “a certain age” of the Batmobile, courtesy of the 1966 Batman TV series starring Adam West and Burt Ward as the dynamic duo. With great gadgets like an anti-theft switch, Bat Beam, Mobile Batcomputer and the Emergency Bat-turn lever, this version of the Batmobile is well respected and has been used by many as their transport on their wedding days.

See The New Batmobile From 'Batman v Superman' From All Angles!

  • LRM Online
The spy pics just keep on coming!

Hot on the heels of a sweet overhead shot of the Millennium Falcon out on the town from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, we now also have a bunch of shots of another iconic Hollywood vehicle- The Batmobile.

Batman's legendary ride is seeing some action on the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice lately, so it was only a matter of time before photos flooded the net. What's interesting about the design of the vehicle is how it fuses together different design philosophies from Batmobiles past and present. When the initial teases came out, some people speculated it would look like a cross between the Burton Batmobile, and Nolan's Tumbler. It would appear that anyone that thought that was right on the money.

'Batman v Superman' Batmobile Revealed

'Batman v Superman' Batmobile Revealed
The Batmobile has been spotted on the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice set. Ben Affleck's sleek set of wheels (and relatively dainty in comparison to Christopher Nolan's version in the Dark Knight trilogy) seems to be covered in dust, but the ride is still properly parallel-parked (though backwards in comparison to that silver car). Director Zack Snyder teased the car in May with a tweeted photo of its derrier under a tarp, and included a little bit more of the vehicle — doors closed — in the first photo of Affleck as the DC hero.
