LOS ANGELES — Vivid Entertainment announced the formation of "Vivid-Superhero" today, a new imprint tapping Axel Braun as lead director.

"The parodies under this new imprint will pay tribute to the world's most popular comic heroes," said Steven Hirsch, founder/co-chairman of Vivid.

He added, "Axel already started pre-production on a parody of “Superman,” which will be followed by those of “The Green Hornet,” “Spider-Man,’ “Wonder Woman,” “Captain America,” “Thor,” and “The Incredible Hulk.”

“We made the decision to create the imprint after working with Axel on 'Batman XXX: A Porn Parody,' an Axel Braun Productions movie to be distributed by Vivid. Axel truly did an amazing job with it, and we agreed that together we could mine the really rich treasure of superheroes and have a lot of fun doing it."

Braun said, "I honestly couldn't be more excited. Working with Vivid is an incredible experience, and with this new imprint I'll have all the creative latitude to deliver quality productions that will appeal to the huge fan base that exists for these iconic figures."
