In less than two weeks, "Batman: Arkham Knight" will grapple hook onto shelves, thus giving you the chance to "Be the Batman." In anticipation of the game's June 23 release, "Saturday Night Live's" Taran Killam assembled a few celebrities to test out the conclusion of Rocksteady Studios' Arkham-set video game trilogy.
Directed by Killam and narrated by Jonathan Banks ("Better Call Saul"), the promotional video features Neil Patrick Harris ("How I Met Your Mother"), Wiz Khalifa, Minka Kelly ("Friday Night Lights"), Blake Anderson ("Workaholics"), Kumail Nanjiani ("Silicon Valley"), Breckin Meyer ("Franklin and Bash"), Joe Manganiello ("Magic Mike XXL"), iJustine, Troy Baker and Kevin Conroy, who voices Batman in the video game, trying their hands at patrolling the streets of Gotham. Watch them glide through the sky, break bones and drive the awesome looking Batmobile.
Naturally, the results are hilarious. Khalifa and Kelly added their own sound effects as they played while Baker composed a little jingle about glide kicking and using smoke pellets, and NPH learned that the game isn't voice activated. Meanwhile, Nanjiani is more concerned with meeting the other celebrities.
Check out the video below:
"Batman: Arkham Knight" will be available on Playstation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on June 23, 2015.
