That Aronofsky doesn't want his film to be used as a marketing gimmick for toys, just as I meant it.

So he'd rather preserve his intregity and decline the work rather than see his work plastered on a lunchbox.

You really didn't get that from what I said?
Maybe I just misread? Or more likely we disagree on what "preserving his integrity means."

Look at the huge mistake with "Dark Knight".
Nolan made a great artistic film w/ Batman.
The worst marketing idea was making mass market toys for a film like that.
Nolan didn't make a film to sell toys, niether is Aronofsky but FOX does.
I'm not sure that I see how it was a huge mistake or in any way reflective on Nolan's film. I mean, if it didn't actually interfere with his creative process or the story he's telling, what's it matter?
"You mean life?"
"Yeah. Does it get easy?"
"What do you want me to say?"
"Lie to me."
