With the first trailer for Legends of the Knight racking up over 100k views on YouTube, a brand new video is now up for the documentary to stir the fan base and try and drum up a little more funding for the film.
Batman is far and away my personal favorite comic book hero and I know that there are quite a few others out there who feel the same. And much like the mortal man that Legends of the Knight is based on, this is a film that aspires to be more.
“Batman has become contemporary mythology,” producer/director Brett Culp said. “We want to show how enduring stories like this shape us. Our goal is to inspire everyone on the planet who loves Batman to embody his spirit, engage with the world, and make a difference. Together, we are Batman.”
And just in case you need a reminder of who’s going to be featured in Legends of the Knight, here are some of the celebrity bat-fan who’ll be appearing:
- Michael Uslan – executive producer of “Batman”, “Batman Begins”, “The Dark Knight”, and “The Dark Knight Rises”
- Denny O’Neil – legendary Batman writer
- Lenny B Robinson – visits children’s hospitals around the country as Batman
- Jill Pantozzi (The Nerdy Bird) – Superhero journalist with the spirit of the Caped Crusader
- Rabbi Cary Friedman – author, “Wisdom from the Batcave”
- Dr. Travis Langley – author, “Batman & Psychology”; teacher of university course in psychology called “Batman”
- Gotham Chopra – co-author, “Seven Spiritual Laws of Superheroes”; son of best-selling author Deepak Chopra
For me personally, they could have just had Denny O’Neil talking about the caped crusader for an hour and a half and I would have been plenty excited about Legends.
The release date for the movie is targeted for this Summer if Culp and crew can manage to make their goal on Kickstarter. You can click right here to contribute and join the Justice League of supporters already on board. Oh, and if it makes it a little easier for you to buy in- Legends of the Knight is a completely non-profit affair. So much so in fact that if it makes a profit at all, then that excess is going straight to charity.
Why that’s almost Batman-like isn’t it.
