Welcome to Fan Film Friday!
This week I’ve chosen the fan film, City of Scars (AKA Batman: City of Scars). This is a 2010 fan film produced by Aaron and Sean Schoenke, and written and directed by Aaron Schoenke. The 30 minute film was shot in 21 days off of a budget of $27,000. Kevin Porter is excellent as Batman/Bruce Wayne. No growling voice from Kevin here, just a low voice and a big presence.
In this fan film, the Joker escapes from Arkham, kidnaps a councilman, and causes a murder, which leads to Batman going on the hunt. Batman does question whether his fight against evil does more bad than good. A very enjoyable film and one of the better Batman fan films.
Also included is the theme song from the Fan Film, entitled “City of Scars” by Madelynn Rae. It is a great song that, musically and vocally, fits the tone of the film. Give it a listen below!
