The Dark Knight Legacy Fan Film Explores What Happens A.B. (After Batman)

The Red Hood in The Dark Knight Legacy Fan Film

So what happens after Batman either blows up or retires with Catwoman (depending on your interpretation of Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises”)? Either way, Batman is no longer around, so who is left to protect Gotham City? Director Brett Register got together to make “The Dark Knight Legacy” that explores that question, and I have to say, unlike a lot of comic book-inspired fan film, this one looks pretty darn snazzy. I really like the gunplay, very gritty stuff.

I have on idea who the old man is supposed to be, though. Kinda old to be crimelordin’, but maybe that’s just me being ageist.

Dark Knight Legacy is a fan film set one year after the Dark Knight Rises, following “Robin” John Blake’s heroic journey to protect the symbol of Batman from the lethal, relentless attacks of a masked vigilante known only as the Red Hood.

Register and company have a crowndfunding project going on where you can donate to keep the “legacy” going. It’s entirely up to you. It’s not even that expensive, either. All they’re currently asking for is $30,000 to make the next chapter.
