LOS ANGELES—Axel Braun told AVN that he has completed principal filmography for Iron Man XXX: A Porn Parody. The saga of billionaire playboy and engineer Tony Stark is the latest homage to the Marvel universe from Braun.
Braun reports that Iron Man XXX is the darkest porn parody of a comic book that he’s made, citing the depth of character of Stark, played by Dale DaBone, who Braun said gives his most complete performance.
DaBone faced a huge personal hurdle coming into filming: his mother committed suicide in early June, hanging herself at home in North Carolina. Despite this personal tradgedy, DaBone dove headfirst into filming, dropping 27 pounds, in order the play the suave, debonair Stark.
“I give Dale a lot of credit because of what he had to overcome,” Braun said. “He really nailed the character. He showed up focused and ready to work. Dale is a tremendous talent, but he needs someone to really challenge him, to hold his focus. He’s brilliant in this role.”
DaBone was custom fitted for two types of armor that Iron Man wears in the movie: the Mark 1, the original grey metal prototype from the first Iron Man movie starring Robert Downey Jr.; and the modern Mark 4 outfit, which was the first suit Iron Man uses in the recent Iron Man 2 movie.
In addition to Dabone as Stark/Iron Man, the movie also features Lexi Belle (Pepper Potts), Derrick Pierce (The Mandarin), Brooklyn Lee (Black Widow), Alec Knight (Happy Hogan), Jazy Berlin (Millie Collins), Skin Diamond (Jill Jerold), Dana DeArmond (Dr. Yinsen), Shazia Sahari (Mei Ling) and a special appearance by Lexington Steele (Nick Fury).
Co-written by Braun and Mark Logan, Braun calls Iron Man XXX a compelling journey with a darker theme than other comic book movies.
“You can’t really tell how the final product looks until it’s finished editing, but I purposely shot this to be darker, grittier and more cinematic,” Braun said. “I used long lenses to enhance the depth of field and had Dale play Stark more straight and less sarcastic than Downey did. In this movie he’s more aware of who he is and how to harness his powers. He has more emotional depth.”
Of course, there’s plenty of hot superhero sex including a hot girl/girl scene between Pepper Potts and Black Widow; an oral scene with Potts and The Mandarin; and Stark in two romps, one anal with Dr. Yinsen and a B/G/G with Millie Collins and Jill Jerold. There’s also a special sexual treat for fans after the end credits roll.
The storyline ties key elements of the comic book and the movies together, and additionally, sets up The Avengers XXX, which Braun just started filming.
Iron Man XXX: A Porn Parody is set for release in the Fall through Vivid Entertainment’s XXX Superheroes imprint.
