Pierre Speaks: Fan Films

Once in a while, you will find on the net something awesome that someone did. I would like to share with you a few of those awesome things. Although most are from a few years ago.... there are some who may not have seen them yet.

Let's begin with Batman: Dead End

The best Batman movie ever. Hard to believe that someone with barely any money was able to make something infinitely better then anything the big studios ever did. The director managed to give us the REAL Batman as opposed to the other takes on the character with rubber suits and nipples. And it even features some surprise opponents (no I wil not spoil it here... go watch it).

The same director also did the World's Finest trailer with Batman and Superman.... although World's Finest is also great, Dead End is by far my favorite of the two.

Then there is Grayson.

An awesome trailer of a movie that I wish we could see someday featuring Dick Grayson the original Robin. This trailer also give us various guest stars (once more... no spoilers... go watch it). Once again hard to believe that someone with such a microscopic budget was able to make such an awesome trailer. My favorite fan film yet.

Then there is Heroes.

An awesome Clerk's parody featuring some Marvel characters. Heck I would say that it was infinitely better then the Clerk's cartoon. Lots of fun to watch.

And finally Icewind Dale.

A short animated line test that I saw online by pure luck. Being a fan of the Icewind Dale trilogy of novels featuring Drizzt Do'Urden, the most famous Drow in the Forgotten Realms. Once again, something done with limited ressources was infinitely better then what was produce for the Dragonlance DVD.

Such gems are wayyyy too good not to share with everyone.


Until next time.

You forgot:
A fantastic, modern re-imagining of The Green Hornet:

An equally stylish Daredevil that "fixes" all the mistakes of the Ben Affleck movie:

A simply animated fan trailer for Nightwing, proving that anyone can do it if they put their mind to it:

A superb "trailer" for a non existent movie regarding the entire Bat-Clan fighting crime in Gotham city. It includes original footage as well as spliced in scenes from nearly all the "great" internet fan films:

Another stylish updated look type trailer, this time for Green Arrow:

And lastly, a very nicely animated "trailer" for the epic Knightsfall batman storyline where Bane breaks the bat:
