A Kickstarter account for a project called This Batman Life hit was launched this week that will give blogger Geoffrey Brett Williams an experience that many Batman fans like myself have wanted to do for quite some time. Becoming Batman.
Williams plans to use donated money from the Kickstarter service to pay his way to study various martial arts fighting styles, private investigation, and the free-running martial art of parkour to train like Bruce Wayne before he became The Bat. In his journey to become The Dark Knight, Williams will be traveling between Chicago, New York City, DC, and Nashville to train and volunteer with various charitable organizations to experience the philanthropic side of the man behind the mask.
The Kickstarter project offers several different rewards for donation amounts including project-related prints from Jason McDonald, Ming Doyle, and the team behind Let’s Be Friends Again, Curt Franklin and Chris Haley that are rewarded to donors pledging between $10 and $50. As for pledgers of $100 or more, the reward is to experience portions of the journey alongside the hero in training.
Williams is asking for a total of $5,000 to help him along the way to becoming Batman. You can follow his journey through his website, and see the rest of the details on the project here.
