" Its long been known that The Dark Knight Rises will be Christopher Nolan's last film in the Batman franchise, thus making his take on the material a trilogy. Though, with this upcoming installment set to break box office records and possibly become the highest grossing film of all time, its likely that we'll be seeing Bruce Wayne return to the big screen sooner than later.
Darren Aronofsky has recently opened himself up as a possible candidate to direct the next Batman movie after The Dark Knight Rises has its run. The director behind the critically acclaimed Black Swan will next take on Marvel Comics The Wolverine, but its not his first foray into the superhero genre. He actually was poised to direct Batman Begins before Christopher Nolan came on board. But his script was deemed a little too dark and unusual for the suits at Warner Bros.
Aronofsky's script for the discarded Batman movie is actually being turned into a comic book. And Darren foresees the possibility that he may turn that comic book into a feature film sometime in the near future.
Here's what he had to say in a recent interview:
"It hasn't really been announced, I don't know if I should give you the scoop! But we're getting there. We're doing a comic book of a (Batman) script that's really hard to make and we're going to do a comic version first and see what happens...It seems like if you come up with an original script, in Hollywood it's not as effective as a comic book."
