Yesterday saw the city of San Francisco get transformed into Gotham City for five-year-old Miles Scott whose dream was made true by the Make-A-Wish Foundation to become Batman for a day.

Miles Scott was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of eighteen months, with the good news that he is currently in remission.

Thousands answered the call of the Make-A-Wish foundation and took part in Batkid saving Gotham City which saw Miles Scott put a stop to The Riddler and The Penguin. Batkid was also rewarded with the key to the city.

Stephen Amell and the cast of Arrow gave their support to Batkid as well, and now two former Batman actors and the current one offer more of the same.

Ben Affleck took to his Twitter offering, "Batkid. Best Batman ever."

Vulture caught up with Christian Bale, who is no stranger to answering the call when needed as Bale visited the victims of the Aurora, CO shooting victims.

"Wasn't that fantastic?" stated Bale. "I looked on the news and I saw this headline and thought, 'What's that?' And I saw all the pictures of him running around and saving people. It's so touching." Bale continued with the actor described as being delighted by the news. "This little kid, oh my God — what a wonderful day for the little fella! It's just fantastic, seeing all those people who were out there to support it."

Michael Keaton weighed in on the news as well, and while he has yet to read up on it, is just as excited for the little guy.

"It's the cutest thing in the world," Keaton told TMZ. "It's so cool."
