Frank Miller Reveals Why Darren Aronofsky Batman Never Got Made

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:24592:]]

Prior to Christopher Nolan launching Batman Begins in 2005, Frank Miller collaborted with Darren Aronofsky for a different Batman movie.

The project got so far as concept art and a script was created, but Miller reveals why WB put a stop to it — citing it was too dark and not what they had in mind (via THR):

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, he wouldn’t torture anybody,” and so on. We hashed out a screenplay, and we were wonderfully compensated, but then Warner Bros. read it and said, “We don’t want to make this movie.” The executive wanted to do a Batman he could take his kids to. And this wasn’t that. It didn’t have the toys in it. The Batmobile was just a tricked-out car. And Batman turned his back on his fortune to live a street life so he could know what people were going through. He built his own Batcave in an abandoned part of the subway. And he created Batman out of whole cloth to fight crime and a corrupt police force.

The article also suggested that Miller turn the project into a graphic novel, in which Miller doesn’t think that is a bad idea.

Maybe I will.

Check out the concept art:

Frank Miller Bashes Uses Of Elektra In Marvel’s Daredevil Netflix Series

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:23184:]]

Season 2 of Daredevil will feature Elodie Yung as Elektra (read the teaser description), but the creator behind the character, the legendary Frank Miller, doesn’t seemed to thrilled.

Miller attended the recent Comic-Con Experience in Brazil where he was asked whether or not he has seen the Daredevil Netflix series, in which he responded with, “No.”

Miller also commented on the use of Elektra in Season 2 by stating it’s not the real deal.

“…they can call it whatever you want, but it will not be the real Elektra,” Miller said, and then when asked asked about his attachment to Elektra, added: “Yes, I’m her father.”

Miller both created and killed off Elektra in the pages of Daredevil in which he claims Marvel promised Elektra would never be printed again.

For what it’s worth, Miller also previously stated at the recent NYCC that he isn’t involved with Batman Vs. Superman and that it’s not an adaptation of The Dark Knight Returns.

Frank Miller Returning For The Dark Knight IV

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:22982:]]

DC Comics will be doing The Dark Knight IV, which will be written exclusively by Frank Miller.

Miller confirmed the news to Newsarama.

“I thoroughly applaud what [Brian’s] doing,” Miller said. “But now that he’s doing his, it’s now a four-part series. I’m doing the fourth.”

The Dark Knight III: The Master Race comes out November 25th, which is actually written by Brian Azzarello with Miller basically on board as a consultant.

The article states Miller “indicated he was aware of Azzarello’s story, and he emphasized that he supported it” and goes on to note Miller said that after he read The Dark Knight III in full, Miller intends to create his own fourth chapter. It’s not known if Miller will both write and draw the new series (Andy Kubert is doing the art for DKIII).

The Dark Knight III was initially said to be the last of the DK chapters, but Miller now says it’s a four-part series as the article notes:

“According to Miller’s language that the series is now ‘four-part,’ the former ‘trilogy’ would presumably now end after the fourth volume.”
