@JordanApps Well, this makes more sense and has a way happier ending! Earlier today, the The New York Post reported that The Amazing-Spider Man actor Andrew Garfield had backed out of presenting at the Oscars with Miles Scott, aka Batkid. Reports suggested that Garfield was less than impressed with the material they had and backed out at the last minute, having Chris Evans, aka Captain America, fill in for him. Well, apparently that isn’t true. For those unaware, the skit had The Academy making Miles an official superhero during the ceremony. It had been planned with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which, if you recall, helped Miles become Batkid. The segment had Garfield appointing Miles. The original Page Six report had suggested that Garfield didn’t like his lines and refused to go by the script he was given until he ultimately stormed off the stage. The Hollywood Reporter released a story suggesting that the skit had been cut for time and the segment didn’t work as a whole, an Academy spokesperson said. As mentioned, the bit was then cut with Chris Evans filling in for Garfield. Producers ended up paying for Miles to go to Disneyland instead, and new reports are suggesting that Garfield joined him and his family on the trip. Aw! Now that sounds like the Garfield we’ve come to know and love, right?
