Remember Miles Scott? Back in 2013 when he was five years old, the Make-A-Wish Foundation helped Miles achieve his dream of being the real Batman to commemorate the end of his treatment for leukemia. The result was one of the most awesome stories of our time: San Francisco was turned into Gotham, and the little boy became Batkid for a day.
Aside from battling enemies like the Riddler and Penguin, rescuing a damsel in distress, and cruising around the city in his own Batmobile, Batkid received messages from Adam West, every other actor who’s portrayed Batman since, and even President Obama.
Miles’ incredible transformation into a superhero combined the inspiring optimism of a child with the true tenacity of all those who fight cancer. Two years since that sensational day, Miles remains in remission, and his adventures as Batkid have not been forgotten.
Batkid Begins, a new documentary about his wish coming true, will debut in June, and the trailer just came out this week.
You’d have to be a supervillain with a heart of ice not to be moved by this amazing story.
