Watch: Adorable 7-Year Old Batman Thwarts The Joker & The Riddler
Sure this summer will have audiences thrilled to see Batman fighting crime in The Dark Knight Rises, but somehow I have a feeling this video might be a little bit more rewarding on a certain level. It's not directed by Christopher Nolan, but it's one of the most touching things I've seen in a long time. The Daily What (via Movies.com) featured a report about an amazing feat by the people at the Texas-based nonprofit A Wish with Wings who made a 7-year old cancer patient's wish to fight crime as the Caped Crusdaer become a reality. Police and fire departments were on hand as Batman fought The Joker and The Riddler.
Here's the awesome video of a 7-year old Batman fighting crime in Texas from The Daily What:
The 7-year old Kye, suffering from leukemia, was fully suited as Batman and not only stopped a bank robbery by The Joker, but he also prevented a bomb from going off at City Hall, all planned by The Riddler. As you can see in the video, it looks like he had a bit of help from Robin and a pink-clad Batgirl as well. It's bittersweet that a young boy like this has been plagued with such a fate, but heartwarming that so many people worked together to make his wish come true. Sometimes it's easy to forget there are such great people out there. See more pictures of the event at the police department's Facebook page. Cool, right?
