Batman: Arkham Knight live-action video has us channeling our inner Batman

A live-action video for Batman: Arkham Knight has been released, and in the video, we get to see various people channel their inner Batman across a number of situations.


A live-action video for Batman: Arkham Knight has been released by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment today that shows everyday people channeling their inner Batman across a variety of situations.

The Be The Batman video shows these people being determined, courageous, and fearless, which are some very important qualities Batman himself possesses. All of which he’s going to need when Batman: Arkham Knight releases on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on June 23.

While we’re not big fans of pre-rendered CGI trailers, we’re not as harsh on live-action videos considering they’re a completely different thing altogether. They’re meant to help hype a game even further, and they also look pretty damn good during a commercial. Gameplay might mean everything to us, but the general population may not. Fortunately for us, there's a bit of gameplay and in-game sequences squeezed in at the end of this video.

      Do I need a guide on how to preorder this game like Arkham City? I'm thinking about buying one of these Nvidia keys on Ebay, but do I lose out on preorder crap? It feels a little sleazy though and I like supporting Rocksteady, so maybe I'll just get it legit.

        As long as you redeem the key before release you get the pre-order bonus. They just stop bundling them once you redeem a key afterward.

        This was the case for me with the last couple times I did this with the key redemption (AMD however, but it was a steam preorder).

      Our inner Batmen? Batmans because it is proper? Just sounds funny with no plural agreement.

      This would have been awesome if they had Kevin Conroy in one of the pieces.

        The athlete bit was odd. He hurt his finger and had to decide whether to return to the court? I mean...was he any good to begin with? Were they losing? I needed more back story. And I'm sorry, but the fireman was...kinda dumb. I imagined that as he was running in to the burning front entry his buddies were like 'Jack! Jack! We're unloading the ladder! Wait!!!!'
