Yesterday, San Francisco became a safer city all due to the efforts of Batman and his miniature sidekick Batkid. Apparently the diminutive caped-crusader decided to head over to Starling City after those escapades as the Hood/ Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and his Green team of Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) and John Diggle (David Ramsey) found themselves with nothing to do for the night according to this Thank You video to the cowled one.
Most know by now that Batkid is actually the alter ego of 5-year-old Miles who has been battling leukemia since he was 20 months old. His one wish was to be Batman and the Make –a-Wish Foundation decided to make his wish come true. The city of San Francisco pulled out all the stops and transformed into Gotham City for this young brave superhero.
It was all in a day’s work as Batkid rescued a female from being run over by a cable car, foiled a bank robbery and stopped the kidnap of Lou Seal. The villainous conspirators of the whole fiasco? None other than the Riddler and Penguin!
While most thought that once this adventure was over and Batkid entered the Batmobile (a Lamborghini specifically transformed provide the ride) to return to the Batcave, it seemed that he actually decided to head over to Starling City to see what more he can do. (Wait, didn’t we just hear that Ra’s Al Ghul was headed there too?)
With nothing to do now that Batkid is around, the ‘Arrow’ team decided to take the night off and thank their fellow superhero for his help. Hey, maybe if Batkid could use Diggle as his Robin then Olycity can finally happen!
It’s a great video and a nice touch from the cast of ‘Arrow’.
