The absence of 'The Amazing Spider-Man' actor Andrew Garfield is reportedly the reason the Oscars cut a segment that would have featured 5-year-old Miles Scott, better known as "Batkid."
According to PageSix.com, Garfield was suppose to the take the stage at last Sunday's Academy Awards accompanied by Scott, cancer patient who stole the hearts of America after the city of San Francisco let him play superhero for a day.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences had an arrangement to make Miles an official superhero during Sunday's ceremony, and Garfield was to appoint Miles as "Batkid."
But in dress rehearsal, Garfield decided he didn't like his lines, a source told Page Six.
Garfield, who was suppose to be a presenter at the Oscars, missed the ceremony along with girlfriend Emma Stone. According to RadarOnline.com, the absence was due to a "personal matter."
'Captain America' actor Chris Evans introduced a heroes segment instead, but Miles never made it on camera.
