Zatannurday: X is for X-Rated
The biggest trouble is with "porn" versions of superheroes is not that people are having sex (come on, that is WHY we get them) it's that often the producers of the adult movies do a better job than Hollywood does! Not always, but sometimes.
I have a number of adult film actors and producers on my G+ and Facebook friends and they are every bit as geeky about this stuff as I am.
Here is a post by fellow gamer Zak Sabbath on his site, Playing D&D With Porn Stars to pretty much the same conclusions.
So here are two examples of X-Rated Zatanna. This post though will be safe for work.
I had previously mentioned Super-heroines in 3D before. I bought it and watched, for research of course!
It stars Chanel Preston as Zee.
The movie itself is Point of View. So it's like you are part of her...magic act.
Chanel looks great, but I didn't buy her as Zee at all. I honestly only picked up for the Superhero content, I am not into POV porn.
The next one though is an example of what you can do if you pay attention to your source material.
The Dark Knight XXX: A Porn Parody works better as a B-rate Batman movie. I also own this one (thanks to Vivid's on demand service; we live in a Golden Age!). I am not going to get into it too deep to be honest, but there are a few things I did want to bring up.
First for a Vivid porn it is rather tame, but it also has a plot. Batman, upset of the defeat of Batgirl and Nightwing, is in exile. Meanwhile Bane is tearing up Gotham.
The scene with Joker and Batgirl is straight (more or less) from The Killing Joke.
The scene with Zatanna is what brings me to this movie. It is Zee (Christy Mack) and Constantine. The actor is a better Constantine than Keanu Reeves was; he has the look and the accent.
Christy Mack looks more like Zee than Chanel Preston. Though they forgot the fishnets.
She has a scene with Constantine (the impossibly named Clarke Kent), but that is it.
I give the producers credit for knowing their material and casting actors and actresses that look the part (Catwoman and Poison Ivy were great; Bane in here is scarier than Bane in TDKR). I gotta say the Joker scene ala the Killing Joke made my geeky fan boy happy.
All in all this is still better than the Justice League Movie from 97 or the Doctor Strange movie from 20 years before that, and right now it is the closest we have to a Justice League movie.
