It's been nearly two years since Hissoni Johnson's Nightwing-origin webseries made its début, but it's returned at last. However, it's not here to give you more Dick Grayson, actually, but to reveal the story of Jason Todd in a world where Batman works alone. » 3/05/15 7:40am 3/05/15 7:40am

Shot-for-shot remake of the Man of Steel trailer is homespun magic

It's always fun to see what fans come up with when they Swede trailers for big special effects movies, but there's something especially delightful about this homemade remake of the Man of Steel trailer by DustFilmsOriginals. When it begins, it seems like a particularly earnest Sweding, but by the time we hit the bus… » 12/23/12 12:00pm 12/23/12 12:00pm

What if Portal was a 1980s animated movie?

I'm getting a strong Don Bluth vibe from this cartoon short by Chelsea GR, whose test animation uses dialogue from Portal 2 and transforms the game's always yapping A.I. into humanoids. Here's the original scene, and for similar Portal-mation, here's the game by way of John K. [Via I♥C] » 9/18/12 7:55pm 9/18/12 7:55pm

This is one rather trippy Punisher fan movie

Animator Luis Pelayo Junquera has taken one of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's most poignant Punisher tales — "Do Not Fall In New York City" — and transformed it into a dream-like short movie. This story sees Frank Castle not going up against his usual coterie of mafiosos, but a troubled soldier he knew from the… » 9/11/12 1:55pm 9/11/12 1:55pm

Live-action Captain Planet fan film recycles all your nostalgic memories

Will the live-action Captain Planet movie ever really happen? It seems like a longshot — but this fan-made trailer for a Captain Planet epic reminds us all just how silly and awesome the half-naked blue superhero could be. And how topical, maybe. » 8/15/12 12:09am 8/15/12 12:09am

A stylish film about what happens when Superman's dog goes to the…

Well, I didn't anticipate writing that headline this morning, but Brett Underhill's sleek (albeit scatological) short about the bodily functions of Superman's dog Krypto forced my hand. Explains Underhill of Superman's Best Friend, "After a long day working two jobs, Superman's duties never seem to end when Krypto… » 8/03/12 11:25am 8/03/12 11:25am

Watch a visually impressive 23-minute Y: The Last Man fan film

The film adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra's chromosomal apocalypse comic book Y: The Last Man has lingered in development hell for years, but that didn't dissuade filmmaker Christian Cardona from adapting the series out of a labor of love. He's condensed the story of the weeniest (cue cymbal crash) last… » 7/11/12 2:10pm 7/11/12 2:10pm

What if Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles aired on Adult Swim?

Then it might bear a strong resemblance to this concept animation by Malcolm Sutherland. Sutherland took cues from the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle comic book, which experimented with many bizarre art styles. Here's a pared-down look at those familiar sewer shinobi of New York City. And is Michelangelo… » 7/03/12 8:40am 7/03/12 8:40am

This Superman fan cartoon is good enough to warrant an entire movie

Disney animator Robb Pratt (Pocahontas, Tarzan) previously wowed us with his 1940s-inspired interpretation of the Man of Steel. Now, he's given Superman's opposite-day-yammering clone his own short cartoon, Bizarro Classic. Fantastic stuff, and note the backwards theme music! » 7/02/12 11:15am 7/02/12 11:15am

This Star Wars student film could pass for a lost episode of Clone Wars

For a graduation project for Florida's Digital Animation and Visual Effects School, a group of students assembled this unofficial tribute to the 1980s Droids cartoon show. Watch as Artoo and Threepio go haplessly joyriding with some Jawas. Spoiler alert — the ending is reminiscent of that one incredibly ill-fated… » 6/30/12 6:45am 6/30/12 6:45am

Was this zany fan film from 1969 the first live-action Spider-Man movie?

A mere seven years after the Marvel Comics superhero Spider-Man debuted in 1962, comic book fans were already making amateur tributes to the wall-crawler. » 6/21/12 8:40am 6/21/12 8:40am

If Portal guns were readily available in real life, you'd use them to…

At least that's the conceit of Jason Craft's Portal: Terminal Velocity, a nifty short film about a group of pals who make each other's lives miserable with their new toy. The Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device really should come with a warning informing the consumer that it possesses the power to destroy all of… » 6/12/12 10:15am 6/12/12 10:15am

What if Inception and 300 were built entirely out of LEGO bricks?

For a class project for Staffordshire University's Visual Effects and Concept Design degree program, students assembled a series of animated shorts that reimagined Hollywood blockbusters as LEGO worlds (à la the LEGO Star Wars series). These projects were assembled over a period of 12 weeks, and each represents… » 6/11/12 4:50pm 6/11/12 4:50pm
