We are currently in pre-production for a very ambitious Batman short entitled "Batman Legend".

Writer/Director/Editor: Matthew Braney

Synopsis: Dick Grayson returns to Gotham after giving up his mantle as Robin years ago. He arrives to find out that Bruce Wayne has been dead for years and Batman has been missing. Alfred is now wheelchair bound roaming the empty halls of Wayne Manor, still mourning the death of Bruce Wayne. Dick Grayson decides to assume the identity of Batman in order to bring him back to the people of Gotham.


This film will have be composed of proper cinematography, acting, sound design, costume design and soundtrack which will all be original.


We will be using this to keep Bat-Fans posted! I am currently working on the website

Sounds like an ambitious effort on your part to do a story like this.
Good luck with the story and filming. There is no such thing as a small project Cool

Thank you, and for the record this project will have a budget & we which will be most likely doing crowd-funding for the project once we've established enough development.

I assume you were testing my knowledge.

We are filming the opening scene and using that along with a mini-documentry to help raise money for the film on either indiegogo or kickstarter.

We are all artists by passion and Batman fans by heart.

Great concept, ideas, and I'm really excited to see it executed. Great idea for the IndieGoGo; one my production team and I share with my Nightwing: Escalation webseries.

Sounds like an interesting production. Nice shot of the backpack, although I can't help wondering why he'd wear it.

He wears it because the Robin patch is the only thing left from his costume. He just sewed it onto his backpack as a reminder, something he appreciates more than he did when he was Robin.

If that makes sense.

We will be posting the opening scene with the backpack on our kickstarter video next month.

Aren't people in Gotham going to question him for kinda giving away his secret by having that. Or people will just think that kid is just a fan of Robin or something, the reason why he will wear that?

Grayson got to have a excuse to wear that in public, if that happens when he is questioned by someone.

In the Batman Legend backstory, Dick Grayson was only Robin for a few years in his early teens before he grew tired and decided to leave Gotham. He spent a long time studying around the world different martial arts, going to college in Europe etc.

The film picks up on his journey back to Gotham, where the Robin patch has only been on his backpack for a short time. It wasn't until recently he grew to appreciate the symbolism as Robin and what Bruce Wayne/Batman did for him. The Robin symbol isn't as recognizable outside Gotham, and Dick has been absent for 15 years.

Essentially the backpack is seen in the beginning of the film. We will be shooting that scene next month alongside our Kickstarter campaign.
