Spiderman doesn’t seem to be the hero of this story. Actor Andrew Garfield was set to present an award with Miles Scott, the San-Francisco 5-year-old child diagnosed with cancer and given the title of ‘Batkid’ for a day as part of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Apparently he quit the segment during rehearsal when he didn’t like his lines.
Garfield was going to officially appoint Miles as ‘Batkid.’ A source inside said the he didn’t like the script he was given and tried to make up his own lines. When the producers didn’t think that his lines were going to fit, he completely overreacted and left the stage. This is all speculation.
There are other sources claiming that something much less dramatic went down that day. “Basically, because of the fluid nature of live TV production, ultimately the segment didn’t work,” an Academy spokesperson said. In the end, Chris Evans did the presenting bit instead (also a superhero in films) and he could have done the segment with Miles if producers had wanted him to. It would make sense that the segment itself got cut and not that Andrew Garfield threw a fit.
Garfield always seemed like a really nice and humble person. So what do you think happened that day?
