Fan Film: Joker Rising

Have you ever wanted to see an R Rated Batman movie? Well now is your chance.

We were contacted by Manuel Eduardo Ramirez about his feature length fan film Joker Rising which plays out like a hardcore hood movie.

I have to say I’m very impressed; it feels really authentic and the acting was good too. The bad guys looked genuinely threatening and I would definitely like to see more.



This is the first part of a potential trilogy focused on The Joker which let’s face it, is what we all want to see.

Dylan Hobbs- The Joker
Katie Young- Harley Quinn
Manuel Eduardo Ramirez- Croc
Dominique Marsell- Riddles
Ski Carr- Black Mask
Bob Buhrl- Oswald
Mario Orozco- Spider
Sarah Nunez- Ivy
Baylee Curran- Sarah
Travis O’leary- The Bat
Robert Esparza- AJ
Gary Sugarman- Joker’s Right Hand Man

We have a link to their Indiegogo page which you can go to here, but I’ve also posted details below.

Now we aim to surpass it and explore the rest of Gotham in a full lenght trilogy. That’s two more films. This will be different in many ways. One of them is that the next two parts will be basically one giant film split into two and there will be a central villain. We will explore batman more and have him face the darkest things he has ever faced.

The Joker will also go through and bring imense terror to Gotham in ways unimaginable before.

You will see other villains in ways you have never seen before. Two face is going to be a major player.

Story first on this project! This is a non profit project.

This is going to be much more ambitious in every way, shape and form. We intend to make two films that are even better than the one you can watch above. Enjoy

What We Need

  • Funds to retain and hire quality actors for up to a month of shooting
  • Funds for catering
  • Funds for props such as guns/ police cars excet
  • funds for practical vfx and make up.
  • funds to keep the crew employed on this.
  • To create an original soundtrack

What you will get
A copy of the full length Joker Rising- which will be totally complete in a few days.

A chance to be in these future films as an extra and to be apart of it as a whole- credits included.

The Impact

I believe this project will usher in a new age of thought provoking and hard hitting films that show hollywood that it doesnt take just money and effects to make a great film but rather a story and characters.

We pray that with this we can show the every man/woman that you can make what ever you want -even a batman trilogy- if you put your mind to it.
If you would like to join us on this ride we would greatly appreciate it.
Other Ways You Can Help

You can help by getting the word out and by enjoying our previous film. Any support is more than appreciated.

Once the ball gets rolling on this there is no stopping it. We thought of Joker Rising In late march 2013 and it is only 4 months later and it is a fully complete film. Imagine the next two.

These are the kinds of filmmakers with the kind of dedication that deserves support so please do check out their Indiegogo page and help them out.
