In an interview with Vulture, the Dark Knight trilogy’s Christian Bale said, “I looked on the news and I saw this headline and thought, 'What's that?' And I saw all the pictures of him running around and saving people. It's so touching.” Bale added, “What's his name, Miles. He must have been bewildered! Hopefully, later on, he'll be able to look back and say, 'Oh my God, how amazing.'”
In an interview with TMZ, the original Batman movie’s Michael Keaton said, “Somebody sent it to me. It’s the cutest thing in the world.” Keaton added, “Let’s not talk about Batman. Let’s talk about the kid. That’s such a cool thing. That’s such a sweet idea. I haven’t seen it. Somebody sent me the link, and I’ve got to check it out. I think it’s a cool idea.”
