David Blaine's new Batman-inspired stunt
Illusionist David Blaine is to suspend himself upside down over New York's Central Park for 60 hours in a stunt inspired by the latest Batman film, The Dark Knight.
E! Online reports Blaine will make like a real-life Batman and hang from a high wire suspended over the park for three days and three nights.
The endurance test begins on September 22 with a live television special, and will take place in full view of the public.
Blaine will go without food for the entire time, but he will be able to drink water - as long as he can pull himself upright to take it in.
He also plans to walk on the underside of the wire without a safety net, E! Online reported.
Blaine, a self-confessed "street magician", has also spent a week inside a water-filled sphere and was spun around in a gyroscope for two days.
He also spent 44 days living in a plastic box suspended above the River Thames in London.
Blaine also wants to attempt to break the world record for sleep deprivation.
