2008: The Year in Batman Fan Films

Little BatmanFan films were big this year, but clearly the big movie story was The Dark Knight. The feature film flew off with most of the summer box office, and now it may well do the same with upcoming awards season trinkets.

Unsurprisingly, the movie lead to a lot of fan-created Batman tributes, ranging from an effort shot on the same streets as the feature film, to a serial starring a six-year-old driving a mini-Batmobile, to my favorite, Batman’s Bad Day, where insults fly left and right in the Justice League break room between Bats, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash and Green Lantern.

No one seems to know if another sequel will be made, but with all the cash they raked in, how could they not make another one? So, while we wait for Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale to sit down with their calendars (“I want to buy a 200-ft. yacht in the summer of 2011—does that release date work for you?”), here are the many Batman fan film stories that FCT ran this year (after the jump):
