What Joss would have done with the Dark Knight

Cheers to Del for sending me this.

Apparantly Joss Whedon had a go at writing a script for the Batman reboot that Christopher Nolan eventually won. Whedon said his tale would have been a "bit less epic" and have mainly been set in Gotham City.

"He didn't go to Tibet and meet cool people, but it was very similar in vibe," Whedon told MTV.

"In my version, there was actually a new [villain], it wasn't one of the classics - which is probably why they didn't use it. It was more of a Hannibal Lecter type - he was somebody already in Arkham Asylum that Bruce went and sort of studied with."
"It was a whole thing - I get very emotional about it, I still love the story. Maybe I'll get to do it as a comic one day."

I personally hope that Joss Whedon gets a chance to write a comic book movie. His take on Wonder Woman sounded good but it was just not to be. So that's two of the big DC Trinity that Joss has been involved with to varying degrees. I wonder if he'll get a chance to write the next Superman movie?

Discuss in the forum.
