Better than the
Invited to ‘Amazing
Spider-Man 2’ NYC
Premiere — by the Star
of the Film Andrew
Andrew Garfield has turned into quite a super hero in a matter of days, at least for Miles Scott aka ‘Batkid’.
Garfield has reportedly invited the five-year-old leukemia survivor to the April 24 New York City premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man — ahead of the May 2 release date.
Spider-Man himself kindly offered Scott the once-in-a-lifetime experience after their Oscars segment got cut from the award ceremony.
"In full collaboration with the Academy and the show writer, Andrew prepared a segment for the Oscars to honor Miles Scott as the true hero that he is,” a statement released by Garfield’s publicist stated.
“At some point overnight on Saturday/Sunday morning, it was decided by those running the show that the segment didn't work in the ceremony."
The next day, on March 3, the 30-year-old actor joined Miles in Disneyland to make up for what was lost - and surprise him with a personal gift!
"We were happy that Andrew, on his own time, drove to Anaheim on Monday to spend time with Miles and his family," Make-a-Wish spokesperson Josh deBerge said in a statement obtained by E! News. "We understand they had a great time."
If the red carpet movie premiere will be anything like San Francisco’s Gotham City re-make, we can’t wait to see Miles’ debut as the true hero he became!
