Anything that has Jason Todd get my vote and two thumbs up!!
dude, the funding for this just got cancelled. anyone know whats going on?
“There’s really not much to say about what happened. We went looking for funds for a franchise we didn’t own and the people who owned the characters told us to cut it out, which they are 100% allowed to do. It’s nothing against the short itself – that’s self-funded and the video doesn’t run ads so no money is made, it’s just the fundraising we can’t do.
Obviously it’s disappointing. We had a great story to tell and had great people working on it. The fan support was incredible – we made half our goal in a week and the news outlets that picked it up were all very interested in seeing more.
And that’s another place where we probably got in trouble. We’re not the first, or the second Nightwing series to look for funding this year, and we weren’t even the most expensive campaign. Nightwing: The Series and Grayson: Earth One came and went without issue, but we probably put a target on our backs when we got picked up by [several publications that] paraded around a title that had ‘Dark Knight’ in it. We knew the risks going into this and we don’t begrudge Warner Bros. at all for looking after their property.
So it’s disappointing but not sad in the least. All we have to show for it is an absolutely terrific fan film, a badass Red Hood helmet, and a wonderful experience making new friends with talented folks. The short has also gotten more exposure for the Machinima Interactive Film Festival, so that makes me very happy as well. We’re content to just be mentioned in the company of other high-quality Batman shorts like Batman: Puppet Master, City of Scars, and Dead End.
What’s next? Probably Aquaman, though Brett [Register, director of Dark Knight: Legacy] keeps telling me I’m spelling ‘The Flash’ wrong. Clearly we don’t learn.”
DC pretty much said, you can do fan films as long as you do them with your money, that is not weird since DC has always had thi pollitic that as long you dont win money with it, we dont care you do this, also it could be they got too big too fast.
Besides that using The Dark Knight name didnt look like a good idea.

Marvel decide to attack Blinky Studios and take all his fan films down, even after they had one of his on their youtube channel, based on the fact their Deadpool Webshow got a huge recognition even from the IMDB guys talked about it.
