Four-time AVN Director of the Year Axel Braun has wrapped production on his second title under Wicked Pictures’ new Wicked Comix imprint, Batman v Superman XXX: An Axel Braun Parody.

This return for Braun to the superhero genre is slated to street at the end of May, nearly one year before Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill will battle it out in the title roles on theatre screens.

Shot over a three-month period, the dramatic parody finds Giovanni Francesco, Ryan Driller and Brendon Miller reprising their roles as Batman, Superman and The Joker, with Francesco playing the Caped Crusader for the third time and Driller delivering his fourth performance as the Man of Steel.

“Ryan is becoming the Hugh Jackman of porn!” Braun joked in a reference to Jackman’s seven-time portrayal of Wolverine in mainstream movies.

“I am very lucky to have such extraordinary leading men, and I must applaud their absolute dedication to this project. Brendon, who retired from performing last year to focus on his music career, flew in from Texas twice without hesitation to reprise the role, and his Joker is possibly even creepier than the first!”

The movie’s supporting cast includes Kleio Valentien as Harley Quinn, Alison Tyler as Wonder Woman, and 2015 AVN Best New Starlet and Best Actress Carter Cruise as Supergirl.

As has often been the case with Braun’s superhero parodies, a leaked photo of Cruise as the iconic Maid of Might recently sparked a lot of praise in social media from fans who found her costume superior to the one chosen by CBS for Melissa Benoist in the upcoming Supergirl TV series.

AVN Director of the Year Axel Braun

“As a hardcore comic fan, I believe that never in a million years should a porn parody have better superhero costumes than its mainstream counterpart, and yet we managed to have not only a way better costume, but also a terrific actress and performer in the role,” Braun commented. Everything you’ve heard about Carter Cruise is true, she is absolutely outstanding, and her portrayal of Supergirl is beyond perfect.”

“And then there’s Alison, who really nailed the essence of Wonder Woman: a sexy, badass warrior princess who exudes sensuality. She comes into the movie toward the end, but her torrid three-way scene with Bats and Supes is one for the ages.”

For his part, Wicked Pictures president and owner Steve Orenstein offered, “When I signed Axel at the end of 2013, he told me he wanted to take a break from superheroes and focus on diversifying his repertoire.”

“The extraordinary success of the Wicked Fairy Tales line, and the AVN Movie of the Year award for 24 XXX proved that he was right, and when he was finally ready for more comic book parodies we were thrilled to have him come back with a bang. This movie is simply exceptional, and will make fans very happy.”

Braun’s first Wicked Comix title, Barbarella XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, is available now.
