Director Axel Braun held auditions late last week for his very first porn parody, Very Happy Days, to be released by Hustler Video next March.
...
"Forget every other parody you've ever seen," Braun told AVN. "I am seriously treating this like a mainstream production. If you take out the sex scenes, it really does feel like an episode of the show". A fan of "Happy Days" since his childhood, Braun aims with this parody, which he scripted as well, to recreate the original with a level of faithfulness right down to shooting the dialogue before a studio audience. "I already have 32 people who have given their availability," he said.

Highly acclaimed director Axel Braun has approached his latest adult parody movie with his usual attention to the minutest details, making Wolverine XXX an instant parody classic. "Wolvie has always been one of my favorite superheroes, and I wanted to do him justice," says Braun. "Even though Hugh Jackman did a terrific job making the character his own, there were several things that always bothered me, one being his height (Wolverine is supposed to be much shorter), and the other one the fact that in six movies he still hasn't worn the iconic yellow/blue costume...so I decided to fix all that." In Wolverine XXX Tommy Gunn plays a mysterious mutant superhero with an unbreakable skeleton, retractable Adamantium (the indestructible metal alloy bonded to Wolverine's skeleton and bone claws) and an overly developed sex drive. He eventually discovers that he has been used and experimented on as a living weapon by several governments and agencies over the years, each altering or wiping his memory to suit its needs. While unraveling the threads of his past, Wolverine encounters other fascinating characters and, of course, hot sex occurs at every turn. "This is a career-defining role for Tommy Gunn," says Axel.

The sex scenes are as explicit and varied as in any other porn movie, but more impressively, Braun creates some genuinely impressive visual images - the moments leading to the death of Mariko are excellent and within the brief time he has, Braun has come up with some moments of genuine atmosphere at the Weapon X facility...But like all his films, it's entertaining and amusing, especially if you grew up with these characters, and well worth checking out.

The same week in June that Warner Bros. released the Superman blockbuster 'Man of Steel,' Vivid Entertainment Group put out its own superhero flick, 'Man of Steel XXX: An Axel Braun Parody.'" The story goes on to say: "The porn parody superhero revolution seems to have begun in earnest around 2010, when veteran adult film director Axel Braun, who boasts of having a collection of DC and Marvel comics dating to his childhood, brought his 'Batman XXX' film to Vivid Entertainment Group.
...
Production costs can be more than 10 times as high as making a traditional pornographic movie, but the parodies sell for three times as much, Braun said.
...
Since then, Braun has released everything from 'Spiderman XXX: A Porn Parody' to takes on 'Star Wars,' 'The Avengers' and 'Iron Man.' And get this: he doesn't even film the sex scenes. She concludes her story with this quote from Axel: "I have always treated (my job) as a business, not a lifestyle.
