Though Ben Affleck is getting ready to bring Batman back to the big screen next year, one of the most popular takes on the character is in the Arkham videogame series -- and the latest trailer puts a live-action spin on Bruce Wayne’s alter ego.

While we patiently wait for the epic finale in the series, Batman: Arkham Knight, Rocksteady Studios has put together a new live-action trailer to get us amped up to “become” Batman. Taking things a step further from the videogame realm, the live-action trailer finds Average Joes facing challenges where they might need to channel their inner Batman. So, literally becoming Batman. Clever.

As if that wasn’t cool enough, there’s also some nifty new gameplay footage tacked on the end, so that should sweeten the pot considerably. Arkham Knight will pit Batman against the “ultimate threat against the city that he is sworn to protect, as Scarecrow returns to unite the super criminals of Gotham and destroy the Batman forever.” It'll also feature some seemingly awesome Batmobile gameplay.

Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think:

Batman: Arkham Knight is set to hit shelves on June 23.
