Love seeing fan films that focus on superheroes.  Today we get a good long look at Batman: Death Wish.

Batman, Robin and Nightwing investigate a mysterious assailant who is targeting the kingpins of Gotham’s criminal underground. As more of the rogues gallery is ensnared, a disturbing revelation about the attacker’s identity takes shape.

“Batman: Death Wish” is a Batman fan film directed by Matthew Hiscox (Army of Two: 40th Day, Blunt Trauma) and written by Jennifer Zhang (Street Fighter High, Dead Inside).

And we’re proud to say the video features an *original score* and cinematography by Andrew Ceperley!

    Beats the hell out of the George Clooney version.

    Not as embarssingly amateurish as usual. In fact, pretty solid. Decent acting. Great costumes.

    Light and not so pretentious for a change. Acting’s weak, but it’s kinda OK. I still think Clooney was the best Bruce Wayne, period.

      I still give that to Christian Bale. But Clooney was a close second. Other than the Governator’s “Mr. Freeze” everything else in that movie was “blech” for me.
