"Dark Knight" trilogy co-writer David S. Goyer has compared his new version of Leonardo Da Vinci to Batman -- and now we can see why.
The new trailer for "Da Vinci's Demons," a new Starz series premiering this spring, features the 16th century polymath doing a lot more than just painting, sculpting and inventing.
Goyer's incarnation of Da Vinci -- played by Tom Riley -- is a suave ladies man who can't keep himself out of trouble.
Luckily, he appears to be pretty handy with a sword. And, like Batman, isn't afraid to ride a rope up to the rooftops when he finds himself in a pinch.
The new adventures of the young "Mona Lisa" painter begin on April 12.
