Do you love Batman? Well you don’t love it as much as Aaron Schoenke. If you did you would have spent $27,000 to film your own take on the popular franchise. That’s what Schoenke paid to film City of Scars, a rather impressive looking and morbid take on Batman.
Aaron took the film back to it’s roots with a darker look and the classic voice over which I personally love, although I know voice overs can piss off some viewers.
Here’s the synopsis for the 30 minute movie:
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 accept the consequences of his life to find resolve.
Batman has always focused on revenge in some manner or another, giving him the opportunity to realize how his revenge affects who he is may be a great idea, but the conclusion will always be the same “I’m Batman.”
Here’s the entire movie:
So what do you think? Not bad for $27,000 in my opinion.
