- A firefighter running into a burning building.
- A group of passengers confronting a bully on the train.
- A basketball player basketballs with a broken finger.
- A kid who decides to single-handedly fight off a gang of muggers.
These are the “Everyday Heroes” that Rocksteady Studios has decided to honor in their live-action “Be the Batman” trailer/commercial. You apparently don’t need billions of dollars and an arsenal of high-tech toys to fight crime or make the world a better place, you just need Batman’s selflessness, determination, and courage.
On the other hand… the basketball player is an athlete and while “playing through the pain” might make him heroic to his teammates, he’s not exactly making the world a better place or promising to hit two home runs for a dying kid like Babe Ruth did. And the poor mugging victim in the alley is going to get himself killed as the only guy who walks away from a three-on-one fight is The Batman.
Batman: Arkham Knight will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on June 23, which is just a little over a month away from today.
