Imagine, if you will, that some crazy person had the equally crazy idea to take the technicolor tone of classic TV superheros such as The Green Hornet
and the Adam West Batman
and re-invent them in the 'service' of fascism. The crazy person in question is Portuguese writer-director Joao Leitao and his very much tongue-in-cheek creation Captain Falcon
We first caught wind of Leitao's brilliantly daft creation back in September of 2011 when he released a promo trailer for a proposed Captain Falcon
TV series - you can check that below - and when that series fell apart at the eleventh hour with the network pulling the plug just weeks before it was due to go into production, Leitao snatched victory from the jaws of defeat, quickly restructuring the story to work as a standalone feature and shooting the damn thing anyway.
Now deep into post production, the titular Falcon fights to protect the Fascist ideals of his beloved homeland from the encroachments of Marxism, Feminism, Democracy and everything else non-Fascist. We've been promised the first official trailer from the film proper in April - the trailer below is the pitch reel for the TV series - but to tide you over and whet the appetite, ScreenAnarchy is proud to present the first five stills from the film. Check them in the gallery below.
