This isn't Leahy's first time on the big screen. He appeared in 2008's "The Dark Knight" in a scene with Heath Ledger. He even had a great line for the Joker: "We're not intimidated by you thugs."
We may be biased, but we couldn't agree more. If you're going to pick a super hero to be obsessed with, Batman is the choice. He doesn't have some weird power bestowed upon him thanks to a freak accident (Spider-Man), nor does he have unattainable super strength and the power of flight (Superman). Batman is a dude who uses mortal means to do extraordinary things.
But to be clear, Batman is not your ordinary guy. He is a super rich playboy with a driver and access to all of Gotham's elite. Come to think of it, he sounds more like a politician than average Joe.
And given Bruce Wayne's tax bracket, the Leahy connection sticks out. The lawmaker was all about the Paying a Fair Share Act (remember the "Buffet Rule?") and is opposed to retaining Bush-era tax cuts for the rich. If Batman were real, which side of the debate would he land on?
