Batman: Dying is Easy is a fan film catching the attention of the world. The Schoenke brothers raised more than $75,000 through the crowdfunding site Indiegogo for the project. The 30-minute production features the likes of Michael Madsen, Doug Jones, Casper Van Dien and musician Chris Daughtry.
We want to give the fans something they’ve always craved with these characters. A psychological, dark detective story with an almost horror film feel. This film is created by fans for fans. This film will feature all original costumes, sets, and a music score!
“I love to kick, kick, punch, punch, punch-kick, punch, roll around. I love wearing the cape, love all of that, but what i mostly love is because I’m an actor I love dialogue and I love character-driven projects and this is exactly what I’ve always wanted,” Porter said in one promotional video for the fan film. “I’ve played Batman for, gosh, coming on twenty years now, and I’ve been so blessed to have done it with the Bat in the Sun guys. Now, this is something that pursues Batman in a way that’s never been seen before, as the detective…I think this is the project that we’re going to pull out all the stops and we’re going to portray the characters exactly as you, the fans, have always wanted to see them because we’ve always wanted to see them (that way) as well.”
“The characters are so rich in their backstories and their psychology that just to have the two characters interact and go back and forth about what makes them tick is just so fascinating,” Schoenke added. “I don’t think we’ve ever really seen that in live-action.”
