A new Batman fan film is now online called “City of Scars“. The 30-minute short tells the story of Batman, who is “pushed past his psychological limits to the point of focusing only on revenge on all who stand in his way.”
When the Joker escapes from Arkham and murders the parents of a young boy, Batman recalls the pain of losing his own parents as a child. He is pushed past his limits to the point where his focus becomes revenge on all who stand in his way, including many of Gotham’s underworld. Finally, Batman is forced to look at the psychological profile of his own mind and except the consequences of his life to find resolve.
Written and directed by Aaron Schoenke, the short was filmed with High Definition cameras over 21 days with a budget of only $27,000. I’m not terribly impressed with this new short film, but I’m sure comic book fans will enjoy this independently produced Batman story, even if it never approaches the production value of Nolan or even Burton’s big screen adaptations. The film will be available for streaming on demand beginning today (June 18th) and continuing for one month on Daily Motion and embedded after the jump.
