Darren Aronofsky's Batman film would've been like this:

After Bruce Wayne's parents are shot, Bruce loses his fortune and becomes homeless.
Alfred's character changed to a African-American man named "Little"Al who runs a Auto-Repair shop and acts as Bruce's mentor.
Bruce doesn't travel the world, he instead reads books on various types of combat and practices them.
Unlike the comic it would have focused more on Bruce.
Bruce uses mostly chemical based weapons when fighting (like the original Bill Finger Batman).
Bruce Wayne gets his persona from an intertwined T and W on a ring he wore while fighting crime that was mistaken for a bat.
Many key scenes from the comic are omitted from the script.
The Batmobile and Batcave are present.
Gordon has lived in Gotham for years, and is trying to leave for the sake of his pregnant wife.
Gordon's wife is renamed Ann.
Carmine Falcone is omitted from the script and Gillain B.Loeb would have replaced him as the Master of the Organized crime.
Selina Kyle would have been African-American and would have had a more prominent role.
Gordon's character would have been suicidal.
The Batmobile would have been a Lincoln Continental.
There would have been many new characters that were not in the comic.

Ignoring the obvious racist key points, why change Gordon's wife?

Wait, was this not a joke? In any case, it's better than Snyder...

1. This bit in particular sounds like satire. It's utterly bizarre.

2. Didn't they do this in that Ninja Turtles film from 2014?

In that film, it was a picture book... in Japanese... even though in the film, Splinter isn't even Japanese...

Stanley Kubrick was once interested in directing an adaptation of V.C. Andrews' Flowers in the Attic, but due to the explicit incestuous relationship between the two main characters, a possible Kubrick-directed take on the material never happened.

Kelly Marcel provided uncredited rewrites to the scripts for Bronson and Max Max: Fury Road.

Also, the lighting in the scene was pretty dim, which probably helped somewhat.

Yeah... I thought about that, but that scene with Tarkin was really dark as well, and he still looked like a Lego Star Wars character.

The character of Carlo in La La Land, a hotshot screenwriter Mia meets at a party, is played by Jason Fuchs, the co-writer of Wonder Woman and Pan.

Martin Scorsese was originally attached to direct The Snowman, but dropped out in 2013, although he would remain onboard as an executive producer and later bring his go-to editor Thelma Schoonmaker to help edit the film alongside Claire Simpson. Morten Tyldum and Baltasar Kormakur were both considered to replace Scorsese, but they declined. Tomas Alfredson was then hired to direct in 2014.

La La Land was initially set up at Focus Features with a budget of just $1 million. The studio demanded the character of Sebastian be changed from a jazz pianist to a rock musician and both the complicated opening musical number and the bittersweet ending be dropped. Heartbroken, Chazelle scrapped the project and moved on.

Rob Zombie was considered to direct Freddy vs. Jason, but turned it down to work on House of 1000 Corpses.

Eric Roth wrote the original screenplay for The Cat in the Hat, which was more family-friendly and faithful to the book, but it was rewritten by Alec Berg, David Mandel & Jeff Schaeffer after Universal decided it needed more adult content in order to recapture the success of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Roth wasn't given a screenplay credit in the finished film.

Justin Lin was originally courted to direct Terminator: Genisys, but he left the project due to his commitment to Fast & Furious 6. Rian Johnson, Denis Villeneuve, and Ang Lee were approached to replace him before Alan Taylor was chosen to direct. Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier originally turned down the project three times, but James Cameron persuaded them to pen the script.

Bruce Green, the editor of Friday the 13th: Part V - A New Beginning, had previously been an assistant editor to regular Steven Spielberg collaborator Michael Kahn on the first two Indiana Jones films. Kahn put his neck on the line for Green, even offering to edit A New Beginning for free if the producers didn't like the job Green did.
