Here's my own little fan film to contribute to this thread. Superman Doomsday - Funeral for a Friend. Actually it's part 2 of 3... check it out!
Keeping in tone with part 1, the dialogue is minimal as I am trying to tell the story through images and music almost like a ďsilent movieĒ.
In this quick chapter, I wanted to dramatically slow down the pace and focus on people close to Superman while experiencing the funeral from their POV. I wanted to separate this from other massive scale funeral vids with tons of cameos by keeping it smaller and more intimate. I also wanted to touch on the relationships between the core three members of the Justice League because in my vision, although they are friends, the Justice League has not been formed yet. Unknowingly, this is the moment that truly brings them together and it begins with Batman and Wonder Woman in their quest to avenge Supermanís death.
I am fully aware that there is a huge logical problem by having a funeral while Doomsday is still on the loose. Yes, common sense would dictate that Batman and Wonder Woman immediately attack Doomsday, and Metropolis postpone a funeral for a later time. And yesÖ that was initially going to the next video. However I felt it was necessary to slow it down for the second act, have the characters pay their respect, and add some emotional drama before escalating to all out action in part 3. So Iím hoping itís something that can be overlooked for the sake of entertainment as we move forward to the finale. And Iím hoping to make the finale as epic as possible! Iím coming up with ideas at this very moment and itís just a matter of making it work, so stay tuned!
