Next Batman Not Married to Jennifer Aniston

The Batman franchise just got a shot in the arm (or wing, if you prefer Bat cliches). Darren Aronofsky, the recently-hired director of "Batman: Year One" has put the kibosh on rumors saying that Brad Pitt will be the next Dark Knight. Those evil, nasty rumors started when Aronofsky and Pitt were seen tooling around L.A. together (in the Batmobile?), but the director tells TV Guide that he and Mr. Jennifer Aniston never discussed anything bat-related; their conversation focused solely on the sci-fi movie Aronofsky is writing. With Pitt out of the picture, the lead role is completely up for grabs, but one thing to consider is that the Batman in "Batman: Year One" is much younger than the crimefighter we've watched in the first four movies. It's possible that an unknown will be the next person to strap on the latex. Further information on Pitt's non-involvement is available at
