SPOKANE, Wash.--A man known as the Spokane Batman was set to bring a documentary about how people overcome personal challenges to Spokane in the first week of June. Proceeds from the documentary were to support Spokane’s Make-A-Wish foundation.

Spokane Batman said the film would inspire everyone and help support a worthy cause.

The documentary “Legends of the Knight” told the stories of everyday people who went above and beyond their duties because of their love of Batman.

The documentary also told the story of a man visiting hospitals as Batman, lifting up spirits of young children. The Spokane Batman supported local charities all year around.

Spokane Batman decided to bring the film to Spokane to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Proceeds from the tickets would go to the local non-profit and would help grant more than 320 wishes in 2014.

"Batman's always been a favorite character of mine, just the perseverance and the dedication and the giving back, that's something that I connected with,” said Spokane Batman.

"Make-A-Wish is all about doing good, bringing joy and strength to our kids who are battling their life threatening illnesses,” said Angela Geiss with Make-A-Wish.

The film explored different stories about people’s love for the Dark Knight.

Legends of the Knight was set to be shown on Monday at AMC River Park Square at 7:30 p.m.
