For all intents and purposes the video game Batman: Arkham Asylum and the short film Batman: Dead End featured Gotham’s hero tackling not only the Joker but also Aliens and Predators. What’s cool about the character of Batman and why he fits into the genre so well is that he’s a bit of a psychopath himself. In this latest fan film City of Scars that really dark side is explored once again even further.
City of Scars is a gritty, dark Batman fan film that will be running on Dailymotion exclusively for one month. The City of Scars’ exclusive premiere on Dailymotion is also a fundraising event for Redeye Inc., a charity for underprivileged kids.
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.
