The events surrounding Andrew Garfield's appearance and no-show at the Oscars continue to evolve.

First it was reported that Chris Evans had been brought in to replace Andrew Garfield who no-showed the Oscars.

Then a second report stated the Oscars cut the segment because they felt it wasn't coming together.

Now the latest has it that Andrew Garfield had a meltdown at the Saturday rehearsals which saw the actor storm off leaving 5-year-old Miles Scott, Batkid, devastated.

The segment is reported to have featured Andrew Garfield appoint Miles Scott as Batkid.

The new information comes from the NY Post's Page Six, which also explains this as the reason for Chris Evans appearing at the Oscars at the last minute.

The academy was going to make him an official superhero during the Oscar ceremony. Andrew Garfield was going to appoint him ‘Batkid.’ But, in the middle of the dress rehearsal, Garfield decided he didn’t like his lines.

Garfield refused to go by the script. He came up with his own lines. The producers felt that Garfield’s [rewrites] were not appropriate. Garfield had a tantrum. He stormed off. Miles and his family, who were at the rehearsal, were devastated.

Garfield was such a spoiled brat that he didn’t even want to be a presenter. The academy had to call Captain America star Chris Evans to sub at the last minute.
