‘Batkid,’ Spider-Man hang out after Oscars cut
March 08, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — A California boy who was treated for leukemia and became famous as “Batkid” got to spend time with another superhero after his planned appearance at the Academy Awards was cut.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences says Andrew Garfield, who plays Spider-Man on the big screen, spent time Monday with 5-year-old Miles Scott and his family at Disneyland.

The two had been set to be on the Oscars broadcast the previous day, but the academy said segments sometimes have to be cut when producing a live show.

Miles battled the Riddler and Joker as Batkid last November in San Francisco. His wish was made possible by the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

His family said Miles was diagnosed with leukemia when he was 18 months old and ended treatments in June.
