The Make-A-Wish Foundation have promised to turn 5-year-old Miles, a brave leukemia sufferer, into Batman for the day.

The charity plan to Convert the streets of San Francisco in Gotham City for the day.

Miles will spend the day dressed as Batman, when he will also be called upon to save a damsel in distress from the Hyde Street cable car tracks.

The busy superhero then heads over to Nob Hill, where he must foil the Riddler’s plans to rob a bank.

Miles will heed the calls of Gotham’s citizens as he battles the Penguin to release the Gotham City mascot from his evil clutches.

Starting in Union Square, Miles will chase down the penguin in a real life car chase using convertibles so Miles can show off his superhero skills.

The chase will then finish at the town hall where both the Police Chief and the Mayor of Gotham City will thank him for all his help and honour him with the key to the city.

The event, run by the charity for terminally ill children, is set to feature a cast of thousands, and spectators are being invited down to cheer for Miles on his adventure.

Miles’ parents were shocked when Miles wished to become Batman, and a spokesman said “He is a sunny, positive little boy and finds his inspiration in super heroes”
