An army veteran in Florida is insisting that he’s Batman, worrying his shocked fiancée.
The man, formerly known as Giovanni, has declared “I’m Batman!” on a Dr. Phil show episode scheduled to air tomorrow, Thursday, February 7.
RadarOnline.com has a preview clip from the outrageous segment.
The man began his secret identity just two days after he asked his girlfriend Kalan to marry him.
Kalan said on the Dr. Phil show that her now “super-hero” fiancé will only answer to the name “Goose Wayne Batman.”
“Goose,” as he refers to himself, refuses to take off his mask or eye makeup, explaining that he just wants to help and protect people, and being “Goose Wayne” is a non-negotiable part of his life.

“As a superhero, my day to day is finding people that are breaking the law and I try to bring them to justice,” he told Dr. Phil McGraw. “I physically train to be Batman. To win fights.”
Although Kalan says she’s loved him since she was 14, she admits his superhero hobby may be too much to handle. The last thing she wants is to walk down the wedding aisle with a masked man!
For his part, “Goose” knows he’s not the REAL Dark Knight, but says it’s who he has decided to be.
