The Celebs Come Out in Support of Batkid!Suzanne Jannese
Holy cow! Is Ben Affleck worried about the competition? Does Christian Bale wish he had taken some tips from Batkid?
The celebs came out on Twitter to tweet their support of Batkid, the mini superhero who saved Gotham earlier this week.
The Batkid story, where 5-year-old Miles Scott had his dream of being a superhero made real by the Make a Wish foundation, touched the hearts of everyone across the globe — including Batman-in-waiting (reprising the role for the Man in Steel sequel) Ben Affleck, and Batman of the Nolan trilogy, Christian Bale. Affleck tweeted: “Batkid. Best Batman ever. #SFBatkid #Makeawish.” Meanwhile, in a interview with Vulture, Bale said, “Wasn’t that fantastic? It’s so touching!”
Tim Burton’s Batman, Michael Keaton, also joined in the praise, saying, “Batkid is awesome!”
Meanwhile, actress Elizabeth Banks tweeted, “Isn’t he a ROCKSTAR?” Enrique Iglesias also praised the pint-sized superhero, tweeting, ‘This is amazing. Way to go Miles, Batkid saves the day!” Other celebrities to share the joy were Anna Kendrick, who sweetly tweeted, “I just read about Batkid and am IMMEDIATELY in tears!” New dad Nick Lachey was also emotional, tweeting, “As a new dad, I am so moved by Batkid and all the volunteers who are helping bring his wish to life. Awesome!” Alyssa Milano supported the Make a Wish foundation by tweeting to her followers, “You can Donate to help @MakeAWish for others to come true #SFBatkid.”
Perhaps Zachary Levi summed it up best when he tweeted, “Mind Blown. Heart melted. Smile permanently glued to my face. Giant props to @Make A Wish and city of SF.”
Ben Affleck, take note — if you want your Batman to have heart, look no further than Miles!
