How do you think Joaquin Phoenix would look like Batman?
Joaquin Phoenix recently caused a sensation with his appearance in the Oscar-winning comic book Todd Phillips Joker. But he almost played Batman in the production of Darren Aronofsky, who was thrown into the wind because the Warner brothers wanted Freddie Princess Jr. to play the part.
Aronofsky, known from films like Mama, Black Swan and others, told Empire magazine: The studio wanted Freddy Prince Jr. and I wanted Joaquin Phoenix. I remember thinking: We’re making two different movies here. It’s a true story. It was a different time. The Batman I wrote was definitely a different type of perception than the one they eventually created.
It was after Aronofsky’s Dream Requiem, which was filmed in 2000. So he had to follow Joel Schumacher as Batman and Robin as George Clooney. If Aronofsky had had his Batman film, there would have been no Batman trilogy by Christopher Nolan and no trilogy about the black knight Christian Bale.
Besides, there’s probably no Joker Joaquin Phoenix.
When he talked about what his superhero would look like, Aronofsky added that it was amazing because I was a big fan (Miller) of graphic novels, so it was exciting to meet him at that time. The Batman that preceded me was Batman and Robin, famous for his nipples on Batman, so I really tried to undermine it and reinvent it. That’s where my head went.
