Vivid Named Studio of the Year - XCritic Consumer Reviews

Vivid Studio Insider For June 28, 2013

 MAN OF STEEL XXX: AN AXEL BRAUN PARODY  NOW ONLINE -- The latest superhero parody from Axel Braun, Man of Steel XXX , is now available online at vivid.com and will be in stores nationwide on July 9th.  Over 100,000 adult fans viewed the trailer on YouTube in the first 48 hours after it was posted. In his latest intrepid undertaking, Braun has created an updated spoof of the classic all-American superhero.  Ryan Driller reprises the role that launched his career. The dorky, fumbling Clark Kent of the ‘70s is gone and 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 also has the exceptional quality and attention to detail that Braun fans have come to expect, including a black Superman XXX costume the director personally designed. Says Axel: “I just wanted to humanize the character a bit. 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.” 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 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 as a prelude to her own upcoming movie.  The trailer got lots of attention in the media, including from blog Daily of the Day, which said, “it actually looks pretty awesome…and maybe just a little hilarious.”  The announcement of the release of the movie sparked renewed interest by many mainstream websites and blogs, including IdleHands.com, and the EMMReport.com.
