BatKid Rises: Adorable Make-a-Wish Hero Gets Epic Movie Trailer. Last week the Internet collectively wept with joy over the story of BatKid.
He was the hero that the world not only needed, but wanted, adored and was inspired by. Basically, he was just the right kind of guy to be a movie star.
YouTube user SandD2012 — a self-proclaimed BatKid fan — created a movie trailer for “BatKid Rises,” an adorable parody of The Dark Knight Rises, staring Miles (BatKid) instead of Christian Bale’s Bruce Wayne.
Miles’ extraordinary day of events was thanks to a Make-A-Wish sponsored event that turned San Francisco into Gotham so the 5-year-old with leukemia could dress up as his favorite superhero and save the city. Thousands of people showed up to watch Miles’ heroic acts and even the President thanked him for his brave work.
Now, we’re not movie makers or anything, but this sounds like the plot of an Oscar-winning film. Perhaps this YouTube video will spark some Hollywood buzz and Miles can take on the silver screen next.
