Batman: The Frightening

Whoo boy! Everyone got all hot about this script, featuring the Scarecrow. When Batman 5 was still in development, “Batman: The Frightening” was a title being considered. Soon, this fan script surfaced, purporting to be the real deal.

Although two writers, Terry Hayes and Rafael Yglesias, were credited on the draft, but both denied writing it. The author was later discovered to be Brandon Gaines.

Batman 2

Here’s an early version of Batman Returns. Sam Hamm wrote the first Batman (and has taken a crack at many other comic book movies), so it made sense for him to do a draft of the sequel. The final screenplay was written by Daniel Waters.

Asylum / Batman Vs. Superman

by Andrew Kevin Walker and Akiva Goldsman
After several failed attempts to get a new Superman off the ground, this crossover was proposed by Andrew Kevin Walker. It was designed to relaunch both the Superman and Batman franchises. I think it’s a great idea. Sure, they’re both good guys, but as anyone who reads the comics knows, the two heroes have conflicting personalities and ideologies.

This screenplay was scrapped when other (separate) Superman and Batman projects came into favor and attached director Wolfgang Peterson left to do Troy.

Years later, an entirely different film was made, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
