San Francisco will be Gotham City for 5-year-old’s wish to become Batman

November 04, 2013 By Mike B


The Dark Knight trilogy is one of the best in cinema history, and Batman is quite the hero to look up to no matter what your age or background is. People always tell you to be yourself, unless of course you have the opportunity to be Batman. Who wouldn’t want to be Batman for a day?

Miles, a five-year-old fighting leukemia, is being catered to by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. What does the kid want to do? He wants to be the caped crusader, so the foundation will be turning San Francisco into Gotham City to give Miles a day-long adventure as the Dark Knight.

Check out the details of his adventure, outlined by Make-A-Wish Foundation:

“After rescuing a damsel in distress from the Hyde St. cable car tracks in Nob Hill, and capturing the Puzzler in the act of robbing a downtown vault, Batkid will eat his lunch at the Burger Bar in San Francisco – directly above Union Square. While at Burger Bar, he will get a special message from the Chief of Police to go to the window – where he will look down and see a huge group of volunteers jumping up and down asking for Batkid’s help. Why?

Because the villainous Mr. P. will be kidnapping a famous San Francisco mascot! The getaway car will be visible on Union Square (a convertible so that everyone can see what is happening), and the chase will be on!

After catching Mr. P., Batkid will make his final stop at City Hall, where the Mayor and the Police Chief of San Francisco will thank him and give him the key to the city. We plan on having hundreds of volunteers and donors collected to cheer and thank our Batman!”

Here’s Bat Kid himself:
