For those of you who may not remember, on Nov. 15, 2013 Miles was given a custom made Batman costume as well as his very own Batmobile. An actor was hired to play Batman’s arch nemesis, The Joker, and Batkid was given the opportunity to save the city and capture The Joker once and for all.
In the trailer we also get a look at how the wonderful people at the Make-A-Wish Foundation managed to takeover the city of San Francisco for a day with the help of some BIG names — including President Barack Obama.
