Today I wanna present a Batgirl fan film that just premiered this week.
I watched it yesterday and I think it deserves to be the topic of the weekly post here.
And this is a Batgirl film that wasn’t canceled! 😉
At least not yet… don’t know if DC/Warner will let it stay on YouTube or not.
In the past the fantastic “Batgirl: Spoiled” series was stopped after the second episode for example, even these episodes are still available on YouTube.
(That’s why I save every video I think is really good and that I wanna rewatch)
If you have a little over 30 minutes… watch it!

Here is the video (not my upload):
Watch the film and then continue!
Wow, that was a dark ending… not really surprising… if you know the comics.
Personally, I don’t like that aspect of the “Killing Joke” as it is such a trauma for Barbara and banned her from being Batgirl for a long time.
I think the movie is shot really well and the acting is quite good as well.
I mean it’s a fan film that was crowdfunded with a little over 2.000$ and is over 30 minutes long, quite a length for such a film.
Her costume is just okay… but I really like the Batgirl cowl they used. A quality cowl, especially if you just have such kind of budget.
Kendall Felix, who plays Barbara and Batgirl, also directed and wrote this film.
The short fight scenes here aren’t really exciting, but that is …again… a money issue I would say.
Not surprisingly… Batgirl has quite a lot of screen time here, but also Barbara as well.
I like the self-unmasking and the re-masking in this one.
Also that she tosses her cowl on the ground as she enters the apartment in the end.
Even that meant that she was standing unmasked in the hallway… quite risky. 😉
Funny that this fan film also has the trope of heroes standing around unmasked on rooftops at night.
I wouldn’t recommend that….
Another plus point is the music in this one, very fitting with a heroic tune as soon as the movie title appears.
What do you think of the movie?
Feel free to leave a comment!
Also, you should leave a LIKE on the video.
I certainly would like more fan films like that!
