Hey, That

Welcome back to our new (well, transplanted) Op/Ed column, Hey, That's My Cape! This week, Jill Pantozzi evaluates an interesting new interpretation of one of our favorite heroes...

Look for a picture of your favorite superhero in Google images with the safe search off and eventually you’ll see why I’m not surprised a Batman porno flick is set to hit stores next week. I’m just surprised it took this long. Well, maybe there’s already been one (I’m no porn expert) but certainly not of this caliber.

Batman XXX: A Porn Parody is either a comic fans wet dream or worst nightmare. From Vivid Entertainment and director Axel Braun, the film is an almost perfect depiction of Batman and friends from the 1960s television show and film, but, you know, with sex.

Holy corrupted childhood memories, Batman!

"I knew this project would trigger a certain amount of interest, but the reaction has far exceeded my expectations,” said Braun. "I guess comic fans are happy to see a different, sexy side to their favorite characters.”

I’m not quite sure about that. I’ll be the first to admit I’ve had dirty thoughts about Bruce Wayne, recurring thoughts if you must know, but the Adam West version is the last one I’d want to picture having sex. Then again, the trailer does make it look pretty awesome (SFW, except the title of course).

Ron Jeremy is listed in the credits but thankfully he’s not playing the Dark Knight. Seriously, thank you Jesus. Batman XXX: A Porn Parody stars adult film pros Dale DaBone and James Deen as Batman and Robin with Lexi Belle as Batgirl. As far as villains, Randy Spears plays The Riddler, Evan Stone the Joker and Tori Black is one purrfect Catwoman.

“Dale DaBone literally became Adam West, turning in one of the most electrifying comeback performances I've ever seen in my 20 years in the industry, and James Deen was just outstanding as Robin,” said Braun. No word on whether or not Batman and Robin will be engaging in any of the activities Batman and Robin are always being accused of engaging in. If anything, they’ll probably just joke about it like everyone else does.

"I think fans of the original series responded so positively because my attention to detail shows how respectful I am of the source material," said Braun. You know, unless you think making these characters have sex with each other in the first place is disrespectful, then perhaps you aren’t responding so positively.

Personally, I have one HUGE problem with the film. All that attention to detail and they couldn’t get a red wig for Lexi Belle’s Batgirl? Seriously? Is it mandatory for there to be at least one blonde in every porn? Tisk tisk Braun.

I’m not sure how much money went into making Batman XXX: A Porn Parody or how much goes into a normal porn but I would assume the costumes alone set them back a pretty penny. But guess what? They’re just getting started.

Pre-orders for the DVD are so considerable that Vivid Entertainment has created it’s own imprint to support the parodies. Vivid-Superhero will be filming Superman, the Green Hornet, Spider-Man, Wonder Woman, Captain America, Thor and the Incredible Hulk.

In a day when most people download their porn (or so I’ve heard*cough*), I think Vivid is going to corner a niche market with this one in actual sales. Even if it’s just collectors of Batman memorabilia.

Can we start coming up with the horrible porn titles now? “Thor’s Mighty Hammer” anyone? “The Man of Steel” is way too easy. What about “Wonder Woman: Lasso My…" well, we’re trying to keep it at least PG-13 here.
