Comic book fans are usually movie geeks as well, so it comes as no surprise that there are literally hundreds of superhero fan films.
The first thing kids do is throw on a towel (as a cape, naturally) and fly around as a superhero. Well, sometimes as we grow up, we don't want to stop doing that so we grab a video camera, write up a script, get some friends together, and make a comic movie!These are the best of those, the fans with the know-how and the passion for the characters to see it through. Movie making is a lot of work, it takes time, effort, and money, so let's tip our hats at these creators who've made the best superhero fan films!
The Punisher: Dirty Laundry
Thomas Jane's "love letter" to Frank Castle and likely the closest we'll ever get to another Punisher movie with him starring, and man, does it deliver. Beautiful action, great cinematography, and tone. This is how you do a Punisher movie.
A geeks dream. Not only did they nail the tone, look, and style of the best Batman mythology but it also includes fan-favorite characters that we would NEVER get to see in a Batman feature.
Batman: City of Scars
That beautiful Batsuit. All of the wardrobe design really, is just top notch. Also a really creepy Joker makes this a well-paced short with a great, ominous tone. Nice work.
Wolverine Vs Predator
Impossibly cool fan film of something we would never get to see on film otherwise. Two of the most baddest characters in history are duking it out. Each plays to their power set, and the actors handle their responsibility upkeeping the integrity of the mythology well. Beautiful footage.
