batkid batman ben affleck adam west christian bale gi Ben Affleck and other Batman actors praise Batkid

The general public fell in love with Batkid, but what about the men who have played Batman in recent years? They like him too — Ben Affleck, Christian Bale, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer and even Adam West all bowed down to their younger counterpart.

Only George Clooney is absent from the praise, probably because no one has tracked down the “Batman & Robin” star yet.

Affleck, for one, seems to think that Batkid is the best of all. The future star of “Batman vs. Superman” posted on Twitter:

“Batkid. Best Batman ever.”

Also offering praise on Twitter was the television Batman, Adam West:

“What a wonderful thing. Relieved that Gotham is safe again thanks to Miles.”

Although not on Twitter, Val Kilmer (“Batman Forever”) used Facebook for his praise of young Miles the Batkid:

“Just heard the riddler is robbing a bank in the financial district. Hurry #sfbatkid”

Christian Bale, the most recent Caped Crusader (in “Batman Begins,” “The Dark Knight” and “The Dark Knight Rises”), talked about Batkid during an interview with “Wasn’t that fantastic?” he asked. “I saw all the pictures of him running around and saving people. It’s so touching.”

As for Michael Keaton, the original Batman of the Tim Burton movies, he expressed his approval on-camera to TMZ. “It’s the cutest thing in the world,” Keaton said. “That’s such a cool thing. It’s such a sweet idea.”

Miles Scott, aka the Batkid, is a 5-year-old boy who has suffered from leukemia for most of his life. His exploits as Batkid hit San Francisco and the Internet by storm on Friday (Nov. 15). In addition to praise from the Batman actors, Miles got messages from the President and First Lady.
