Axel Braun Wraps Production Of ‘Man Of Steel Xxx “, Reveals Black Superman Costume.

 LOS ANGELES – (April 17, 2013) -- Production of ‘Man Of Steel XXX: An Axel Braun Parody’ wrapped recently in Los Angeles, and those who have been on the set unanimously agree that this might be Braun’s finest work to date. The parody movie debuts from Vivid Entertainment on June 14th.

“It was an epic undertaking, and I’m totally thrilled with the result,” says Braun, who has won dozens of awards for his adult parodies. “I think I pushed my compulsive attention to detail to a whole new level with the costumes…it might not mean much by Hollywood standards, but each of our ‘Man Of Steel XXX’ suits costs more than the entire budget of most porn movies.”

Braun says his original screenplay for ‘Man of Steel XXX’ features a much larger cast of characters from the Superman universe. “No Zod, but definitely more boobs,” he says. The full cast includes Lex Luthor (fellow director Eli Cross, in an explosive non-sex performance), Batman (Giovanni Francesco, reprising the role he originated in Braun’s “The Dark Knight XXX”), Wonder Woman (Kimberly Kane), Lois Lane (Kirsten Price), Lana Lang (Samantha Ryan), Livewire (Sasha Knox), Silver Banshee (Skin Diamond), Angle Man (Alan Stafford), Dr. Fate (Eric Masterson), Zatanna (Kendall Karson) and Bizarro (Billy Glide).

Braun was honored in January at the AVN Awards (known as the “Oscars of Porn”) as Best Director-Parody for his work on the blockbuster hit ‘Star Wars XXX,’ and made history by winning the coveted Director of the Year-Body of Work award for the third consecutive year, a feat never before accomplished by anybody in the adult industry.
