London: Filmmaker Darren Aronofsky says if he had been given the opportunity to do a series of Batman movies, they would have been "grittier" than Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy.

Aronofsky was in talks to direct a Batman movie - titled "Batman: Year One", but things did not materialise and the project was scrapped, leading to Nolan taking creative control over the Caped Crusader.

"I think Nolan's version is exactly what the studio wanted. I think I was much more of a gritty feel is what we were going for," Aronofsky told The Playlist.

The 'Black Swan' director did not give any details in regards to what he would have done with Bruce Wayne, if he had helmed the films for Warner Bros.
