CGI Batman Fan Film Adapts Frank Miller’s Classic 1987 The Dark Knight Returns Graphic Novel

batman-mud and bloodWatchmen hoopla is slipping into high gear now, with that comic book adaptaion’s big screen debut only a month away. It’s been 22 years since the famed Alan Moore/Dave Gibbons comic book series was collected into what’s now considered the greatest graphic novel ever. With all the hype surrounding the new movie, though, it’s easy to forget about another landmark comic series that got booked up the same year: Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns.

Sure, we’ve had Batman feature films on and off for the last 20 years, some good and some bad, but you know deep down that the story the fans really wanna see brought to life (besides Moore’s The Killing Joke) is Miller’s standard-bearer. And now it’s happened.

Reticom Films just issued Blood and Mud: A Batman Tale on YouTube (available in HD on Reticom’s barely usable site), based on Miller’s masterpiece and its quite the flick. Clocking in at 20 minutes, the flick includes a lot of iconic moments and a few scenes that are bound to be crowd-pleasers. Something of a team effort, the flick is credited to Thiago Micalopulos, but written by Vaner Micalopulos and produced by Carolina Romano.

The plot summary:

In a near future, Bruce Wayne now retired from the duties of the caped crusader, watches Gotham city rot under the merciless attacks of the Mutant gang. His vigilante alter ego torments his thoughts forcing him to avenge Gotham city one last time.
