Batman:Ain't It Cool has an intriguing story up that came from an inside scoop about a live action Batman short being shot on 35mm film:

Word has it that over the past few months you've received several intriguing photographs from fans in Los Angeles who claimed to have stumbled upon a very elaborate, live-action BATMAN shoot. The sometimes-blurry behind-the-scenes images seemed to indicate that a great-looking Batman was actually going before the cameras in secret. Well, I'm here with the real scoop!

Indeed, there was a BATMAN shoot, but it was for a short film that is currently being kept under lock and key. I have seen this film, and it's any fan boy's wettest dream! It looks AMAZING. I managed to get hold of a few images directly from the 35mm film, and have enclosed them. I think you'll agree that this is the best looking Batman ever put to celluloid. The actor really carries it off, a true testament to the director's casting eye. The story has a majorly PISSED Batman confronting the Joker for the last time in some dark, back alley during a rainstorm. Trust me when I tell you it's got some mind-blowing surprises in it.

This is proof that you don't need to stick a name actor into a stiff, rubber suit of armor in order to make Batman work in the movies. There is a way to do it right and this director certainly did it. He's an industry professional, and I really want to see more from him. He and his crew are obviously tremendous Batman fans.

Take a look at some of the amazing pictures!
