Bat-Rumor Roundup


BATMAN: YEAR ONE! January 6, 2001: Our first Batman: Year One news of 2001! A rumor has been circulating the net for a while, that Aaron Eckhart (Nurse Betty, Erin Brockovich) is Year One co-writter and director, Darren Aronofsky's, first choice for the lead role in Y1. As concluded by a number of sources close to Warner Brothers, this rumor is 100% false. (A script to Batman: Year One hasn't even been completed and Aronofsky himself has stated in interviews (which should be appearing in our interviews section shortly) that he is not even thinking about who will star in the film, and the script is not even completed yet.)

In some more bat-news: Last year Warner Bros. purchased a number of Batman movie domain names. One of the names that Warner Bros. didn't have was "www.batmanyearone.com" (which was owned by someone else). Well, on December 22, Warners renewed several of their domain names and purchased the "BatmanYearOne.Com" domain. So does this mean that a Y1 website is coming out soon? Or does it just mean now that Warner Bros. are seriously starting pre-production on the film? Or does it mean nothing at all? You decide... (NOTE: none of the domains have info, so you will just get an error page if you try to go.)
