Darren Arnofsky Wanted Clint Eastwood for Batman

Does the idea of a Batman flick starring Clint Eastwood strike you as…weird?  How about an adaptation of “Batman: Year One”, co-written by Frank Miller, in which Batman is raised by an auto mechanic after his parents are murdered?  A Batman with no knowledge of his family fortune, something closer to a deranged vigilante than the deranged *extremely wealthy* vigilante we’ve come to know and love?  Yeah, sounds weird to me, too.  There might be some problems (just a few) with the Nolan version, but thank goodness we didn’t end up with this.  Or, you know, maybe it would’ve been great and I’d have to eat my words.  We’ll never know.
