Many of you might remember that Chris Nolan had mentioned that the original draft that Jonah gave him was around 400 pages or something, and that it had some "really crazy stuff" in it. Now, if you look at page ix of The Dark Knight Trilogy screenplay book, where the Nolans and Goyer are all being interviewed, Chris Nolan also mentions that his initial challenge was scaling back Jonah's draft. Nolan says that Jonah initially took the audience to a "very, very extreme place", and that he had to pull it back a little bit. I don't think that we'll see that original draft any time soon, but I think it would be fun to speculate. What do you guys think was so extreme about it, and why was it so damn long? I personally think that the nuke originally went off in Jonah's draft, and that it was probably a lot darker than the finished product. I also have a hunch that maybe that there might have been some credence to those early rumors about Hugo Strange being in the film, with direct influences from the Prey storyline. Speculate away!
