While the 2014 Academy Awards spent several minutes honoring movie heroes, one real-life hero didn't get a chance to join them: 5-year-old "Batkid" Miles Scott.

Scott, who is in remission from leukemia, made headlines last year when the city of San Francisco shut down to honor him and his "Batkid" costume.

He been promised a spot in the Oscars show, only to be cut last-minute. Fortunately, he still got to meet a movie superhero in Spider-Man Andrew Garfield.

So what went wrong? A spokesperson blamed scheduling conflicts: "Basically, because of the fluid nature of live TV production, ultimately the segment didn't work."

Garfield, who was listed as one of the Oscars' presenters, rehearsed with Scott the Saturday before the Academy Awards; he also did not appear Sunday.

This prompted speculation that it was the actor who nixed the segment. Not the case. A rep from the Academy issued a statement defending Garfied:

Batkid has taken Gotham, and the Internet, by storm.

Five-year-old Miles lived out the dream of a lifetime as he became "Batkid" for a day in San Francisco on Friday, with the help of The Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Diagnosed with leukemia at 18 months old, the boy ended his treatments in June and is now in remission, which is by far the most important part of the story.

What followed was awesome, though.

San Francisco turned itself into Gotham City, and thousands of bystanders cheered as Miles saved the city from some of Batman's iconic adversaries.

The Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area chapter outlined several crimes that Miles was asked to solve before being celebrated at a ceremony hosted by the mayor.

Batkid's crime-fighting spectacle made national news, and some big stars shared their reactions on social media. Here are some of the many celebrity responses ...

Ben Affleck: Batkid. Best Batman ever.  #SFBatKid #MakeAWish @SFWish

President Barack Obama: Way to go Miles, way to save Gotham! #FollowFriday RT @SFWish: Here he comes!!!! #SFBatkid

In one of the cooler stories of the year, over 12,000 people lined the streets of that city today to honor a five-year old named Miles.

The toddler - who likes to "be a superhero," according to his mom - has been battling leukemia since he was 18 months old, but had his final treatment in June.

To celebrate the occasion, the Make-A-Wish Foundation in the Bay Area helped organize a Gotham City-like experience for Miles today: he rode around in a Batmobile… he rescued a damsel in distress… he was given the key to the city at City Hall.
