For those of you who know me, there’s one thing I make abundantly clear right off of The Bat. It is that exactly. My love for Batman exceeds so many facets of my life and the obsession has turned into a part of who I am. From collecting anything related to The Dark Knight and finding whatever I can read, watch, or even wear, my love for Gotham’s Finest is very obvious. However, Batman stands for a lot more than just a badass in a suit who can fight crime. For some, he’s a hero who reminds them day in and day out that you don’t need to be anything super to be hero. You can fight the fight with your own strength and determination, no matter how tough the adversary is you are facing.
Enter Legends of the Night, a documentary aimed to showcase our collective love for Batman and how much he represents for those who are sick, weak, or lost. Here’s the trailer.
At first glance, there’s very little to criticize given the goal for the film. It’s a beautiful look into how much my favorite hero means to so many more people and how so many of us have had the icon in our lives since we were young. I am very excited to support the project and I hope I will be able to provide a review for all of you soon.
Legends of the Knight weaves together the uplifting true stories of individuals who have overcome devastating obstacles, unselfishly given to the community, and embraced their inner superhero because of their love of Batman. Through the deeply personal tales of Batman fans, writers, and filmmakers, this feature-length documentary explores the power of heroic stories and encourages viewers to find the own unique path to heroism.
Funded by over 1,100 people from around the world, Legends of the Knight is a return to our childhood dreams of being a hero.
