Although Batman is teaming up with Superman in the “Man Of Steel” sequel, in real life he’s teaming up with Captain America to rescue household pets.
Ex-firefighter and Iraq veteran John Buckland (Batman) and his “Heroes 4 Hire” partner Troy Marcum (Captain America) were teaching kids about safety in Milton, West Virginia, when they saw a house on fire. They raced inside and saved a cat, then resuscitated it. The feline ungratefully hissed at Buckland, who didn’t take it personally because “he just got resuscitated by Batman — that’s a pretty scary thing to wake up to.”
It’s pretty weird to hear Batman speak with a Southern accent, but Buckland has the skills and a badass suit. Maybe he could take the role away from Ben Affleck? OK, that’s a long shot, but watch the video after the jump:
