Red Hood Fan Series Turns To Kickstarter For Support



Jason Todd wasn't well liked when he was merely Batman's sidekick -- the second Robin -- but when he was brought back from the dead -- a dip in the magical Lazarus Pit -- and took on the Red Hood persona he became an instant fan-favorite.

You have to figure at some point Warner Bros. will cash in on his popularity by including him in their DC Cinematic Universe or giving him his own television series, but at this time there are no plans for either -- that we know of. But now fans could get a steady diet of Red Hood if this newly-proposed web series receives enough support via a Kickstarter campaign.

"Red Hood Retcon is a Non-Profit mini series about Jason Todd," its Kickstarter page explains. "Red Hood abandons the Outlaws and disappears. A year and a half later Batman vanishes from Gotham city without a trace. Six months after Batman's disappearance Jason returns to Gotham City to investigate. Jason discovers big time assassins are being called in by a mysterious employer. Jason starts pursuing possible angles about Batman which leads him to Deadshot, one of the assassins that has been spotted in the city. Jason uncovers a difficult truth about a close friend and starts investigating these claims. Roy Harper  (formerly of the Outlaws) joins once again with Red Hood and together they fight there way to the truth."

Below, you can check out the announcement video for Red Hood Retcon.

Red Hood Retcon needs at least $20,000 by the first of next month to reach its goal. So far, it has received $1,115 from 27 backers. If you'd like to back this Red Hood fan-made web series, click here!

    What kind of asshole would give these two assholes their hard earned cash so they could make a fan film?? If you want to make a film, and you don't have the money to do it either don't do it or do what Kevin Smith did: sell your stuff and max out your credit cards. Take a chance. Why should strangers give you money? If anyone considers donating to this, check your head then give your money to a worthwhile charity. Not to two yahoos who want to play filmmakers. Kickstarter (and crowd funding in general) is no better than pan handling on the streets. They've just taken begging for money online. Sad times.

    Jason Todd was a better character when he was in the ground. It sucks that people associate Roy with Jason now rather than Dick because of that horrible Outlaws series and all the stupid changes in the New 52.

  1. I have to agree.  Plus one has to wonder how much longer till Warner Bros. shuts them down.
