List Rules Vote up your favorite fan-made superhero film!

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!

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.

A continuation on The Dark Knight trilogy, picking up with the Red Hood storyline. Great action, good acting, and impressive wardrobe. The rogues gallery on display is nothing to scoff at either.

Incredible costumes, insane cinematography, stylized well, and Black Mask looks cooler than Red Skull did in a movie costing hundreds of thousands more.

Grayson (2004)

This short has more cameos than Batman V Superman inevitably will! Cool mix of classic '80s and '90s TV looks with a distinct comic flavor. Some actors are clearly better than others here, but it keeps its audience nicely.

This film also oddly predicted Grayson taking over for Batman when he died, years before the comics.
