Fan filmmakers at the Los Angeles based production company, Lasrever (a fictitious name that rhymes with fever), have recently released a trailer and crowd funding campaign for Shadow War, their very own Batman web series:
“For nearly 20 years I’ve wanted to make a Batman movie. This is truly a passion project.”
– Peter Marshall Smith, writer, director and editor of Shadow War.
The plot of Shadow War is original but it closely follows the comic book canon, taking place after the death of the 2nd Robin, Jason Todd. Batman has continued his war on crime alone but this is the darkest phase of his career. He blames himself for Jason’s death at the hands of The Joker. Now, the World’s Greatest Detective is drawn into a conspiracy by an unknown adversary in league with his worst enemies.
The trailer includes an uncredited actor playing Batman in the classic grey and navy blue Batsuit inspired by the Arkham video game series.
