Vivid Entertainment has announced it isn’t holding back when it comes to Batman, as the Dark Knight will rise (insert snicker here) in the company’s next adult parody.

Axel Braun is once again heading the project, that according to many sites like JoBlo, Ain’t It Cool News, and even the very site you are reading, note that the director seems to really care about the parody/fan film aspect Braun is taking to these parody projects.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to see such an early positive response” says Axel, “It certainly validates the amount of passion and hard work that so many talented people have put into this project.”

“In the end, it’s all about quality,” said Steven Hirsch, CEO and co-founder of Vivid Entertainment. “Axel has fun spoofing the source material and his attitude, along with his notorious attention to detail, resonates greatly with the fans.”

Once again, Vivid is quick to point out that this is a parody movie, thus protecting them from a rain of lawsuits from Warner Bros. Legal.

The Dark Knight XXX: A Porn Parody arrives online on July 31, and in stores on August 7, 2012.

    Well, it’s nice to see a man so passionate about his craft. Even if that craft is parody pornography.

    Batman-sploitation?

      So long as it is a parody or satire (Joking/mocking in nature) there is very strong legal precedent that makes it legal.

      I mean even taking porn out of the equation look at say, Mad Magazine, it got away for many decades of selling it’s magazine filled with parodies of whatever the big movie/show/pop-culture of the time was.

      Of course even with non-sexual ‘mockbusters’ rarely get sued.
      Look at “The Asylum” company.

      They’ve done (just from memory)
      “Transmorphers” the same time Transformers came out.
      Battle OF Los Angeles the same time Battle:LA was out.
      A Sherlock Holmes adaptation the same time as the RDJ version came out.
      and many many more.

      The ONLY time they ever got sued? Universal sued them for having “American Battleship” at the same time as Battleship, and they did that by claiming the “American Battleship” name infringed on their deal with Hasbro (Only adaptation of the game).
      All that resulted in was Asylum changing it to “American Warship”

      There is, really, no real way to stop mockbusters or parodies.

    Kinda lookin forward to this one. I’m diggin the Bane/Poison Ivy costumes. Good job Vivid.

    Satire/Parody is the same thing that keeps Leno/Letterman from getting sued 100 times a month.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
