Batkid everyone’s favorite superhero from San Francisco was supposed to do a segment during the Oscars with Andrew Garfield but it as cut at the last minute.
The rumor going around is that Andrew Garfield was not happy with the segment. That he did not want to perform it as it was written and that he kept changing the lines.
I will admit I have never heard a bad thing about Andrew Garfield in the news so I have a hard time believing this. It has been since confirmed that Andrew did contribute to the script but he had nothing to with the segment being pulled.
Batkid’s mom had this to say:
“It is kind of a disappointment, but things happen. I know that’s how TV goes and how Hollywood is. We’re just not used to that; we’re from a really small town.”
Andrew was actually upset about the segment being cut, but not as much as Batkid was. Andrew drove down to Batkid’s hotel to present him with a trip to Disneyland and Andrew even accompanied him to Disneyland. Later on, they both did a mini Oscar ceremony in the hotel room, tuxes and all.
At least there is a happy ending for this story.
