Vivid's 'Man of Steel XXX: An Axel Braun Parody' Now Online And Will Be In Stores Nationwide July 9th

LOS ANGELES June 24, 2013 – The latest superhero parody from legendary director Axel Braun, ‘Man of Steel XXX,’ will be released online today by Vivid Entertainment, the leading brand of the modern adult era. It is now available at vivid.com and will be in stores nationwide on July 9th.

 Cover of 'Man Of Steel XXX: An Axel Braun Parody’ from www.vivid.com In his latest intrepid undertaking, Braun has created an updated spoof of the classic all-American superhero that adult fans will not want to miss. In fact, over 100,000 eager adult fans viewed the trailer on YouTube in the first 48 hours after it was posted. (http://youtu.be/Joy6nMbHMtc). 
In ‘Man Of Steel XXX: An Axel Braun Parody’ Ryan Driller reprises the role that launched his career. Adult fans can say goodbye to the dorky, fumbling Clark Kent of the ‘70s. In his place Braun has created a darker, moodier, bolder parody version of the iconic character, with more action, more drama and definitely more sex than any of its mainstream incarnations. Of course, the parody drama will also have the exceptional quality and attention to detail that Braun fans have come to expect, including a black Superman XXX costume the director personally designed.
“I just wanted to humanize the character a bit” said Braun, “I felt that Superman could use some of those elements that made Spider-Man so appealing, some of that vulnerability and not-so perfect life. The result is a beautifully engaging dramatic adult movie with a compelling story, plenty of sex, and some of the best acting I’ve seen in a long time.”
Steven Hirsch, Vivid’s CEO, is equally impressed: “Axel just keeps topping himself, over and over again. The passion he infuses each one of his projects with is unparalleled, and his deep knowledge of the characters truly shows in every frame of this amazing movie.”
Braun’s screenplay begins with a freak accident in which Clark kills supervillain Livewire. He then leaves Lois Lane and returns to Smallville to rekindle his romance with childhood sweetheart Lana Lang. But President Luthor uses the accident to call for a $1 billion bounty on Superman, triggering immediate action by Angle Man, Silver Banshee and Bizarro, the grotesque mirror image antagonist of our hero.
In addition to Driller, the cast will includes Kirsten Price as Lois Lane, Samantha Ryan as , Lana Lang, Sasha Knox as Livewire, Skin Diamond as Silver Banshee, Alan Stafford as Angle Man, Eric Masterson as Dr. Fate, Kendall Karson as Zatanna and Billy Glide as Bizarro. In non-sex roles Bryn Pryor plays Lex Luthor and Giovanni Francesco is Batman, while Kimberly Kane makes a special appearance as Wonder Woman in a prelude to her own upcoming movie.
