Sometimes wishes do really come true. The five-year-old Miles "Batkid" Scott went to Disneyland on Monday with the "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" star Andrew Garfield.

Miles has Leukemia and is well-known for his dreams to become Batman. The Make-A-Wish Foundation recently teamed up with the city of San Francisco to transform an area into Gotham city. Miles was able to dress up as his favorite superhero and save his hometown for evil villains.
Originally, Garfield along with Miles were scheduled to appear together in a superhero segment at the Oscars but feature was cancelled. There was quite a bit of controversy surrounding the cancellation. It was rumored that Garfield was acting like a jerk and for that reason the segment was excluded.
Eventually, a representative for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences stated that it was cancelled due to time constraints. The Academy arranged for Miles and his family to go to Disneyland to compensate for the cancellation. However, Garfield took it upon himself to join the fly down and join the family. He also brought Miles a personal gift.
"Due to the nature of a live show, hard decisions sometimes must be made which require the Academy to cut segments due to the logistics of production," an Academy rep said. "Andrew Garfield understood that his segment had to be omitted, and he drove to Disneyland on Monday to spend time with five-year-old Miles Scott and his family."
Garfield also invited Miles and his family to the red carpet premiere of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" in New York City on April 24.
