Batman III: A Dark Night

Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat is the Batman.

Following his previous feats of taking down a terrorist, and breaking up a fight, he has now helped lift a car to unblock a street.

By popular request, Batman.

Batman returns. An Egged bus full of performers from the Tel Aviv Philharmonic Choir who had just finished a rehearsal got stuck for 45 minutes outside of the Jerusalem Theater because two illegally parked cars blocked the turn on Marcus St. Mayor Nir Barkat happened to be at the Talbiye wine bar nearby, came outside to say happy birthday to his bureau chief, Daphna Deane, who was celebrating on the patio outside, saw what was happening, grabbed a bunch of strong guys (including Lior Shabo) and moved the car. The choir members were so impressed they said they would move to Jerusalem.
