Crossovers are a pretty big movie event. Of course, many of them come from Marvel Studios and DC films. However, there is an unexpected one that some of us probably never saw coming.

Hollywood’s obsession with giving audiences a dark and gritty origins story continues with Sony’s planned Zorro film. While many of those stories have focused on comic book heroes, Sony plans to give a new darker origins story to the swashbuckling Zorro. This has been planned for quite a while actually, with some of the stories falling through the cracks. But now the studio has hired Chris Boal (brother of The Hurt Locker‘s Mark Boal) to pen the script.
According to Deadline, Sony’s Zorro movie won’t be a traditional swashbuckler, but instead will go way of The Dark Knight:
