One of the booths at Wizard World - probably several booths actually - was hawking bootleg DVDs. These are always a common sight at conventions. Many years ago I bought a bootleg VHS of an unaired American Red Dwarf pilot at a Star Trek convention... so I am not un-complicit in these crimes against copyright.
Anyway, this particular booth had a Batman fan-film trailer in perpetual loop and I must have stood there like an idiot and watched it half a dozen times, while Josh was pulling X-Factor trades. Here it is, "Batman Legends":
Setting aside the lack of big-budget CG effects and the quite likely non-professional cast and such, why do I think that looks about ten times better than every Batman feature film ever made?
I like that the costumes look straight off the page... there's no obnoxious need to coat people in body armor. And it's not that I'm an absolutist, it's just that, to me, a simple fabric costume seems much more realistic than the walking tank Bat-armor theory. This Batman might even be able to turn his head, unlike any screen Batman since Adam West.
The unbridled fan-service is what gets me. I'm not even a big Batman fan, but seeing Mad Hatter, Riddler, Nightwing and Harley in addition to the usual cinematic Batman cast is just great.
Here's a few more... let's hear it for film school students!
"Grayson," about an adult Dick Grayson taking up the Batman legacy after Bruce Wayne's death.
"The World's Finest," with Catwoman and Livewire (?) running up against Power Girl.
"World's Finest Heroes: Superman and Batman," a nice stab at the mythical Superman vs. Batman movie.
