Hey Gang! A fun new fan-made Batman short film has been released online called City of Scars. The 30 minute movie focuses on Batman as he 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.
The short was written and directed by Aaron Schoenke. He shot the movie on 21 day schedule using HD cameras, and a $27,000 budget. You can tell this film was inspired by Sandy Collora's Batman: Dead End. Only Collora's film was way better. I have to admit, I'm not really that impressed with the short, but maybe some of the other comic book movie fans out there will like it. I think it's cool they went out and shot an independent Batman movie! I just thought it was a little too slow. Not sure I would have spent $27,000 to make this thing. We've seen short films done for much less that are way better.
