I guess when you name your movie Man of Steel, you are practically begging for satirists to create a porn parody about your film. All you can do is hope that it’s semi-witty, so that it doesn’t damage too badly the overall opinion of your actual movie … because linking one’s film to a blatantly bad porn-spoof title – from Pulp Friction to Forrest Hump -- can be a kiss of death.
Axel Braun is an “acclaimed” director who specializes in these types of porn parodies. The aptly titled Ryan Driller plays Clark Kent and his muscle-bound alter ego, Superman in Man of Steel XXX. The plot involves a Superman clone and … nevermind. I won’t waste any additional time on the plot of an adult movie. The above clip was shared via Blastr, and it’s actually Safe For Work, no matter where you’re employed.
I’ll say this, though. The SFW teaser has pretty impressive production values, and looks to be going with Lex Luthor and a chunk of Kryptonite, meaning Braun is more of a fan of Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns than he might be of Zack Snyder’s new Man of Steel. Braun’s also raising the stakes on this porn parody, as you’ll see a Batman cameo near the end of the clip. Take that, Warner Bros. A World’s Finest team up move, long before you are able to make it work on your own screen.
Braun isn’t breaking new ground here. His previous credits all appear to be part of Vivid Entertainment’s XXX Superheroes brand. A quick surf of his YouTube page reveals trailers for porn parodies of Wolverine:
Iron Man (with a fantastic Tony Stark stand in):
And a Star Wars spoof. Take notes, J.J. Abrams:
I have absolutely no idea how Braun is able to get away with this without answering to Marvel and Lucasfilm’s legal departments. Maybe they didn’t know the spoofs existed until this moment? Mr. Braun? Stay by your phone. Kevin Feige might be calling … shortly.
