Batkid bumped from Oscars

Los Angeles -- The young boy who became known as Batkid after his wish was fulfilled last fall was a last-minute scratch from the Academy Awards Sunday.

Miles Scott, 5, a leukemia survivor, got to play Batman on the streets of San Francisco in November in one of the largest Make-A-Wish projects ever staged.

He was scheduled to appear at the Oscars, and had his tuxedo ready and his speech rehearsed until producers decided to cut his segment, according to Scotts mom.

Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield, who was scheduled to present with Scott, went to Disneyland with him Monday instead and brought him a personal gift.

The Academy said it was a difficult decision to cut the presentation, but had to be done due to logistics. Garfields representatives said they were told it was cut because it didnt fit the tone of the show.
