Batman Evolution is the name of this fan film and why is it special you ask? Well, you don't find many fan made films with a Hollywood director and a Hollywood stunt team none other than 87eleven (300, The Avengers) behind fan projects, so what more could you ask for?
Oh yeah, one more thing, when do you ever find an actor to play Batman who has a black belt in Jujitsu, Ninjutsu and Tae Kwon Do? Tell me.
Comic Book Movies was lucky to have an interview with actor Eric Gable:
CBM: What’s up with the title?
Batman will "evolve" in this movie from the old Adam West Batman to the modern Batman. …there's a lot of gritty, badass action in this, obviously, but it also has a parody element to it. I want to show how Batman — in a somewhat funny way — transforms from the '60s look into the "Dark Knight" as we know him today. Hopefully, the fans will be okay with a little Adam West-style fun — with a nod and wink — before we break bad with a truly dark, modern Batman fight.
CBM: No cape? No utility belt? What’s that about?
That's actually part of the plot. Black Mask challenges Batman to fight his way through a...through his goons without using his bullet-proof cape and belt full of gadgets — just his fighting skills!
