LOS ANGELES—Award-winning adult filmmaker Axel Braun has released the first official trailer for his highly anticipated feature Batman XXX: A Porn Parody on YouTube, to an overwhelming response.
"I knew this project would trigger a certain amount of interest, but the reaction has far exceeded my expectations: over 150,000 visitors viewed the trailer on YouTube in the first 24 hours," said Braun, adding with a grin, "I guess comic fans are happy to see a different, sexy side to their favorite characters."
At press time the trailer had already exceeded 250,000 YouTube.com views. It offers glimpses of adult stars Tori Black as Catwoman, Lexi Belle as Batgirl, and Dale DaBone and James Deen as Batman and Robin, as well as Randy Spears and Evan Stone as The Joker and The Riddler.
The new trailer, also available at vivid.com, has also attracted attention of dozens of mainstream outlets from New York Magazine to Ain't it Cool News, generating enthusiastic reviews and confirming the heightened anticipation for the parody of the campy 60's show.
"I think fans of the original series responded so positively because my attention to detail shows how respectful I am of the source material," Braun said. "The adult marketplace is starting to see more and more porn parodies being produced, so I just decided to raise the bar a little, and this was an ideal vehicle to do so."
Batman XXX: A Porn Parody will be in stores across the country on DVD starting May 24 and can be pre-ordered at shopvivid.com.
