Check Out Fan Made 'Batman: Dark Knightfall' Stop-Motion Movie

Posted by G-Man (39827 posts) - - Show Bio

Man oh man. How many times do you come across a fan-made movie based on comic book characters? It happens often. What is more rare is finding really cool ones.

We're all still on the Dark Knight Rises buzz from Christopher Nolan's final film but check out this fan made short using stop-motion animation and some Hot Toys figures.

(Hopefully Vimeo videos play in all countries.) You can also check it out here:

I want to do this so badly. Perhaps someday. I'll have to stick to simple photographs for now.

Thanks to HDJoey for catching this.

Looks Good!!!

This fan made short film actually had more BATMAN in it than even the 3 hour long "The Dark Knight Rises"!

Looked great. But I'm a little confused. When they say 'Sometimes people deserve to have fun rewarded." what do they mean?

I'm confused were all those other Batman robots or something haha. That was pretty sick though.

O MY LORD! I loved that.

Huh this works but not any of the other recent vine videos I've tried to view. Strange.

Thank you G-man, for making my day better.

@Lvenger: Yeah, this is a Vimeo vid. I don't watch the Vine vids primarily because they're hard to view (, too).

Great vid. I liked the twist with Robo-Batman.

@landau_corinthian : its a line from The Dark Knight.  Sometimes people deserve to have" faith" rewarded."

#20 Posted by TheHeat (518 posts) - - Show Bio

The fighting scenes here were a lot better than what we saw in TDKR. Plus, I love the humor in this.

#21 Posted by BatWatch (4371 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah, I got through the first minute, but I couldn't get into it. Respect for the artist who put it together, but personally, it annoys me.

Wow, I was impressed.

#23 Posted by Deranged Midget (18236 posts) - - Show Bio

The animation was top notch, but that was f*cking stupid.

Wow really good. And we thought we'd never see Nolan-quality Batman footage again....

#26 Posted by Kal'smahboi (3840 posts) - - Show Bio

I didn't understand quite a bit of it. But it was pretty good stop-motion. And the Bat/Bane fight was awesome.

#27 Posted by Vincie_Pooh (118 posts) - - Show Bio

The Bat. Was that the Hot toys version or was it self made? Dam Hot Toys your so sick... but so much

#28 Posted by Jean_Luc_LeBeau (82980 posts) - - Show Bio

Looks like Robot Chicken and Wizard Toyfare had a baby, then peed on it.

This was truly and insanely wonderful! ::claps and claps:: bravo!

lol rocket punch.

#34 Posted by Utandi (220 posts) - - Show Bio

The stop-motion is pretty darn good, but I wish there would be a real story. Maybe a story that fits between "The Dark Knight" and "The Dark Knight Rises" and tells us what happened in this 8 years! Or a story after "The Dark Knight Rises". There could be so much to tell.

I mean, the characters faces and everything looked awesome in this video. There is a lot of potential in this...

But for me this silly clip didn't use it right and is clearly by far (in my opinion) NOT better than "The Dark Knight Rises"! xD

I really enjoyed the story and the fact, that there is not so much mindless action in it. Just the right amount.

Unfortunately, today, there are so less movies out there that have that right "timing".

That was Amazing!!!!! I want to see more of this stuff!!! INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!

#36 Posted by johnkmccubbin91 (3897 posts) - - Show Bio

#37 Posted by Billy Batson (59391 posts) - - Show Bio

#38 Posted by Eyz (3187 posts) - - Show Bio

Simply badass!

#39 Posted by InnerVenom123 (29886 posts) - - Show Bio

That was ridiculously awesome.

#40 Posted by FadeToBlackBolt (23390 posts) - - Show Bio

Knew there would be some f*ckwits saying it was better than anything Nolan's done. Comic fans suck.

This makes Robot Chicken look like Kablaam!

#42 Posted by EdwardWindsor (14517 posts) - - Show Bio

Very cool

#43 Posted by vandinejd_1991 (492 posts) - - Show Bio

The back break was more epic than the one in the actual Dark Knight Rises movie.

#44 Edited by Queso6p4 (1547 posts) - - Show Bio

I absolutely loved this! Not only was it well-done, but the humor was also awesome. Slapping the Ledger Joker head around and it becoming Nicholson's and literally breaking Batman in half. It's a riot! Thanks HDJoey and G-Man.

Edit: I really want that Bane figure. No joke. XD

#45 Posted by BiteMe-Fanboy (8843 posts) - - Show Bio

Haha Batman slapped some sense into Ledger Joker. And by 'slapping some sense' I mean making him turn into the better Joker.
