Fans of Batman should not miss this documentary about the Dark Knight. It is both enjoyable and inspiring for adults and children alike.

Just watching the trailer shows this is a film with a message and a soul and it shows what the power of imagination and hope can do for children who are suffering with illness.

Portions of the documentary film “Legends of the Knight” will debut at a SDCC panel on Friday, July 29 at 10:30am in room 26AB.

The independent, not-for-profit film explores the inspirational impact of Batman and the power of heroic storytelling.

Filmmaker Brett Culp will be in attendance throughout SDCC and available for interviews. The funding campaign on Kickstarter met its initial goal of $31,850 within 48 hours and closed at $54,820.

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.

Over the past year, Culp and his team have filmed stories in 15 cities, recording 64 interviews. He has captured the stories of individuals whose love of the Dark Knight has inspired them to overcome devastating obstacles, to motivate and encourage young people, and to contribute to their communities.

Well-known Batfans who appear in the film include:

Michael Uslan – executive producer of “Batman”, “Batman Begins”, “The Dark Knight”, and “The Dark Knight Rises”
Denny O’Neil – legendary Batman writer and editor
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

In the spirit of Batman, all revenues generated by the completed film that are beyond production, screening, distribution, and administrative costs will be donated to charitable organizations.

Looks like the power of comics can do more than give a good read.
