San Francisco came to a near-standstill last week as 5-year-old leukemia patient Miles Scott ran around his very own Gotham City by the Bay in the guise of “Batkid,” Batman’s pint-sized superhero counterpart, courtesy of the Make-A-Wish Foundation and a variety of municipal agencies.
Now, Batkid has his own movie trailer:
For a day, San Francisco was transformed into a comic-inspired wonderland, complete with the Bat-Signal on City Hall, a Lamborghini Batmobile, and crowds lining the streets to watch the mini caped crusader complete a series of make-believe missions.
For Scott, it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Not only did the Northern California native get to spend the day nabbing bad guys, rescuing damsels in distress and saving the San Francisco Giants’ mascot from the evil clutches of The Penguin, he now even has an unofficial “trailer” to help him remember his day as the protector of San Francisco.
“Batkid Rises” was uploaded to YouTube on Wednesday and quickly began spreading across social media where it garnered rave reviews.
