The Cool News section of the website shows the headline "THE DARK KNIGHT WILL RISE IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE THIS SUMMER", and recalls that "We've had some fun covering Axel Braun productions lately. His recent AVENGERS and STAR WARS porn parodies proved without a doubt that...whatever one may think of "porn" on the whole...Axel is 1) an uber-Geek with both an understanding of / respect for the source material he lampoons; and 2) cares enough to bring surprisingly high quality design and production value to his projects. Yes, I realize saying such things may seem odd under the circumstances - but here we are nonetheless."

The writer posted still photos of some of the characters in the movie, generating a long series of comments on the incredibly high quality of the costumes.
Another prominent movie website, JoBlo posted a Twitter question about the movie: "Which Batman costume do you like better, Christopher Nolan's DARK KNIGHT or axelbraun's DARK KNIGHT XXX porn parody?" The item included juxtaposed pictures from both movies, with Axel's costume emerging as the winner.
"I'm absolutely thrilled to see such an early positive response" says Axel, "It certainly validates the amount of passion and hard work that so many talented people have put into this project."
"In the end, it's all about quality," said Steven Hirsch, CEO and co-founder of Vivid Entertainment. "Axel has fun spoofing the source material and his attitude, along with his notorious attention to detail, resonates greatly with the fans."
