Have you read/heard about the live action DC flicks that never came to be and would like to chat about 'em?
One that I remember reading about as details hit the net was Batman Triumphant. It was going to be Joel Schumacher’s next Batman movie that he said would have returned to the dark nature of the series and make up for Batman & Robin. Scarecrow and Harley Quinn were rumored to be the villains if memory serves. I believe Howard Stern and Jeff Goldblum were rumored to play Scarecrow and I remember reading a report that David Duchovny had done a costume test as the next possible Batman. It sounded neat and I was excited for it at the time. I still think Batman Triumphant would be a cool title for a live action flick. Heck, it applies to The Dark Knight Rises.
I also remember talk of a Batman movie that would have featured the return of Nicholson’s Joker. Harley was rumored for this one too and in this she was to be someone who was in awe of Joker and discovered a way to bring him back.
There’s also George Miller’s Justice League. I think I was one of the few who was mostly interested in that one. I mean, the guy behind Mad Max badassery taking on the JL? Sign me up. It’s funny how after concept art has come out that many more people are now into the idea of this. I still hope Miller can enter the DC fold sometime soon.
Of course there’s Burton’s Superman movie. As a big Superman fan, I’m glad that one didn’t go further in production than it did. If the movie happened and turned out as odd as it sounded, I would’ve seen it but out of obligation more than genuine fan excitement.
So, what other “could’ve beens” have caught your fancy?
