Before Christopher Nolan gave Batman a gritty makeover and Zack Snyder doubled down on the grimdark take, there was Darren Aronofsky and his shelved Batman: Year One project.

The project, which drew inspiration from Frank Miller‘s similarly-titled comic book, envisioned a Travis Bickle-like Bruce Wayne who grew up an orphan in the crime-ridden streets of Gotham, donning a ski mask, cape, and brass knuckles to fight criminals. The project languished in development hell for years before Warner Bros. pulled the plug, but it seems like traces of the idea may still be floating around. Aronofsky, who is currently doing the press rounds for his newest bonkers film mother!, says that he sees more than a few similarities between the description of Todd Phillipsupcoming Joker origin movie and Aronofsky’s own Batman pitch.

VOTD: How ‘Wonder Woman’ Should Have Ended

How Wonder Woman Should Have Ended

With $410.6 million at the domestic box office, Wonder Woman is not only the highest grossing film of the summer, but it’s the second highest grossing film of 2017, coming in behind Disney’s remake of Beauty and the Beast. While we wait for Wonder Woman to hit Blu-ray and DVD next week on September 19 (it’s already available for digital download), the money is still pulling in some cash at the box office. But the film’s success doesn’t keep it safe from lampooning.

How It Should Have Ended has stepped up to give Wonder Woman the comedic conclusion treatment by imagining a variety of routes the DC Comics movie could have taken. One of them includes a fantastic reference to Moana, which shares plenty of traits with Wonder Woman, while another features a crossover cameo from a certain Marvel Comics superhero. Plus, the ending features a fun twist on the usual way the HISHE videos come to a conclusion with Batman and Superman.

Thor Ragnarok Tom Hiddleston Interview

Director Taika Waititi has already shown us that Thor: Ragnarok won’t be your average Thor movie. Not only has the comedy been ramped up, but the filmmaker wanted to strip down the Thor franchise, essentially acting as if this were the first film in the series. But even so, it wouldn’t be a Thor movie without a certain mischievous character.

Tom Hiddleston plays Loki, the god of mischief and step-brother to the god of thunder, and at the end of Thor: The Dark World, the villain of The Avengers got everything he was hoping for. So what happens next? Tom Hiddleston revealed as much as he could about where Loki is heading next in Thor: Ragnarok in our interview with the actor on set last fall. During our chat, he talked about working with Cate Blanchett, being a rock star movie villain, and much more.

Preacher Season Finale Review

(Each week, we’re going to kick off discussion of Preacher season 2 by examining the differences between the original comics and AMC’s television adaptation.)

Here it is. The end of the road. We knew that things wouldn’t end well for Jesse, Cassidy, and Tulip in the season 2 finale, but we probably didn’t know how bad things would get.

Comic book readers had an idea, however, and are probably giddy at what this episode means for the season to come. A trip to Angelville is in order…

Stan Lee cameo in Avengers Infinity War

The Marvel Cinematic Universe gets bigger, but Stan Lee stays the same, reliably making cameo after cameo appearance in each film adaptation of his comic book creations.

And he has not slowed down even as his age reaches closer to that centennial mark. The 94-year-old may be pushing 100 soon, but not before he gets at least five more Marvel movie cameos out of the way.
