James Holmes Called Batman Spinoff Director Diggity Dave Before Shooting

Diggity Dave
“Diggity” Dave Aragon was known for customizing cars for the MTV show “Pimp My Ride.”  Aragon directed a Batman spinoff where a young vigilante Batman shot down evil doers.  You can watch a trailer of the spin off here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CP1TXnP2GSk.  It turns out that James Holmes contacted Aragon about the Batman spinoff and sounded excited about it.  Aragon revealed the details in an interview with CBS L.A. radio affiliate KNX 1070.

Dave described the Batman spinoff as a lot more darker with a lot heavier violent overtone.

“He wanted to know how many people Batman kills,” Dave told CBS Los Angeles. “He wanted to know if it was selective killing. Does he make a list of people he wants to kill or is it a mass body count?”

Dave said that Holmes was shocked when he took his call.  “He couldn’t believe he was talking to me. I’m a pretty good judge of character and I knew the kid was lonely.”  Dave said that he thinks Holmes was just looking for a friend.
