Darren Aronofsky Says His BATMAN: YEAR ONE Movie Would Have Been Grittier Than BATMAN BEGINS

A lot of Batman movies have been left stuck in development hell but one of the most exciting adaptations which never happened is Darren Aronofsky's Year One. Now, the filmmaker sheds some light on that...

Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy is widely hailed as one of the greatest trios of superhero movies ever and while the filmmaker often veered from the source material to deliver a slightly more grounded take on the Caped Crusader, fans still loved them. However, before Batman Begins hit theaters, Darren Aronofsky was developing a Batman: Year One movie with writer Frank Miller.

A lot of details have been revealed about that in the past and it would have been even further removed from the comic books than Nolan's work because Aronofsky clearly had some unique ideas about how best to approach the character. Now, he's expressed his desire to direct a superhero movie after missing out on Batman, Superman, and Wolverine, and briefly described his take on Year One.


"I think Nolan's version is exactly what the studio wanted," he explained. "I think I was much more of a gritty feel is what we were going for." As for why he chose to make The Fountain instead of Batman: Year One, he added: "I probably wasn't in the right place. I had to many stories that I wanted to tell." Since then, the filmmaker has made a lot of original movies, often with some pretty mixed results.
