There are a lot of highly anticipated Superhero movies coming out this year. Captain America: The Winter Solider, Days of Future Past, Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy to name a few. But the most important Superhero movie you should see this year is not a big budget special effect spectacular, but an independent documentary called Legends of the Knight.

Legends of the Knight, for those that have not heard about this film yet, is a documentary about the power of storytelling. The influence that myths and legends have on people. How they inspire ordinary people to overcome great adversity. As you can guess by the title, Legends of the Knight, is a film about Batman. How 75 years of Batman comic books, TV shows and movies have impacted not only the individuals chronicled in this inspiring and heartwarming documentary, but in society in general.

This is a film you cannot walk away from without feeling inspired. The same can be said about meeting and speaking with the film maker, Brett Culp. Brett is a wedding film maker that decided one day to make this movie. Inspired by his children, encouraged and supported by his wife he set out with a camera and a dream. Independently funded by kick starter this is a true man versus the world story on how this movie was made. A true Batman story in itself. This man wants this movie to not only entertain you, but to inspire you to do more and to give back. Not only was the movie independently made, it is being independently distributed to theaters. How can you see this movie? Well the movie is being distributed through You can go onto or the movies official web site and look for a screening in your area. If you are unable to find one in your area in your area you can sign up to have a screening in a theater near you. The best part about this model is most people distributing the movie though this model are also using the screening to raise money for charitable cause. I for one have an event in the Philadelphia area with the proceeds being donated to the National MS society.
