“At some point, every child dreams of being a superhero,” said filmmaker Brett Culp.  “They put on a cape and imagine that they have the power to change the world.  Along the way, many of us lose our faith that this can be true.  ‘Legends of the Knight’ is a return to our childhood dreams of being a hero.  Our goal is to inspire everyone on the planet who loves Batman to embody his spirit, engage with the world, and make a difference.”
