First look at Darren Aronofsky's Noah comic, film to follow?

02.07.2011

We're all currently extremely pumped for Darren Aronofsky's THE WOLVERINE, and we're glue to every story detailed every calorie Hugh Jackman eats, but what's the filmmakers plan past that project?

We now have a glimpse at what Aronofsky meant last month when he claimed he's "doing a comic book of a script that’s really hard to make and we’re going to do a comic version first and see what happens.”

So what's it all about? Noah. Yeah, flood, boat, two of a kind animals. That Noah.

This has been circulating as far back as 2008 when Aronofsky talked to Slashfilm about it:

“It’s the end of the world and it’s the second most famous ship after the Titanic. So I’m not sure why any studio won’t want to make it,” said Aronofsky. “I think it’s really timely because it’s about environmental apocalypse which is the biggest theme, for me, right now for what’s going on on this planet. So I think it’s got these big, big themes that connect with us. Noah was the first environmentalist. He’s a really interesting character. Hopefully they’ll let me make it.”

What we have below is the first look at the art style from the comic (via BleedingCool), inked by Canadian Artist Nico Henrichon. Look suitably apocalyptic, and it would be interesting to see a big budget Bible featured helmed by Aronofsky. I predict a fair amount of protests would follow.

Extra Tidbit: It's really sad Noah hated unicorns and dragons so much.

Hopefully Noah is young and sexy with fashionably gelled hair and, as well as finding the time to save the animals two by two, he's torn between two beautiful women, one who's a vampire and one who's a werewolf.

And God tells him he can't have either, because they're both Unholy! It can be a story of a ruggedly handsome man who's torn between his heart and his Faith! While also being kind to animals, even the unpleasant ones, like domestic cats! And those tiny types of dogs. What the fuck is

Good money in the End of Days Christian Crowd...

Play it straight and show the Heathens going to their watery doom, begging for forgiveness, and he'll make a mint.

All Christians aren't like that, you know. Stereotypes suck.

Only someone of Aronofsky's talent could pull this off and make it interesting.

2000 years from now

2000 years from now someone will find this comic book and believe it word for word. Then people will be wondering who this Aronofsky character was and why he "Directed" noah to build a boat. We shall then have giant wars over the validity of said book and "Director who can do no wrong"
...Just Sayin'

Definitely on board for whatever this guy does. But I agree w/ jnix8808. Am I crazy or was Aranofsky's "doing a comic book of a script thatís really hard to make" quote listed word for word in an article regarding Batman?

Estimated 3-30 million animal species on planet Earth. I'm curious how he tackles this problem.

Oh Yeah!

I remember this project! He said it was supposed to be huge, like he originally wanted The Fountain to be. Also, there doesn't appear to be a drop of ink on that piece.
