Move over Ben Affleck the newest star of the Batman franchise is a kid—Batkid.

The pint-sized crusader had the whole country cheering for him when he saved San Francisco earlier this month.

Now, we have the inside story of how that wish was pulled-off.

Miles was diagnosed with leukemia at 20 months. At the time, his parents were offered a wish from "Make-A-Wish” but it turns out they asked to wait so Miles would remember it.

Fast forward to today and at the age of 5 he made that wish.

"When Batman knocked at our hotel room door, he came up holding a costume and told Miles 'put this on we have to go to work,'" said Nick Scott, Miles’ dad.

That's when the country met Miles.

It seemed a whole city was in on it, and with Miles now in remission his parents have started the 'Batkid fund' to benefit other sick children.
