The Rise of Superhero Fan Films

Making a short film on your favorite comic book is a pretty cool new phenomenon. You do it as a fan, with the disclaimer that it’s strictly a fan thing and not meant to profit off the series. Then you post it on YouTube, and see who salutes it. Max Landis, the writer of Chronicle, did a funny Death of Superman commentary that racked up a ton of views on YouTube, and up and coming director Christian Cardona also did a well received fan adaptation of DC’s Y: The Last Man Standing.
