Ben Affleck Surprises A Young Fan Suffering From Terminal Cancer With A Call From BATMAN

Ben Affleck Surprises A Young Fan Suffering From Terminal Cancer With A Call From BATMAN

Earlier this week, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League star Ben Affleck helped make the wish of a young fan come true when he gave him a call and revealed a very special surprise.

On Thursday, Ben Affleck proved that he doesn't always need to wear a cape and a cowl to be a superhero. 

Earlier this week, nurses at Hospice Atlanta shared the story of an 11-year-old refugee named Mukuta, who is suffering from terminal cancer and is receiving treatment at their facility, on Twitter with the hopes that they could find someone to visit him dressed as his favorite superhero: The Batman. However, after attracting the attention of Shazam! star Zachary Levi, they received a very unexpected, but very welcome, call from the Dark Knight himself.

Affleck, who is currently filming Netflix's Triple Frontier in Hawaii, made a very special FaceTime call to Mukuta on Thursday afternoon and while the young fan didn't immediately recognize him because of his massive beard, his perplexion quickly turned to jubilation when he realized he was on the phone with Bruce Wayne. 

Affleck's kind heart didn't stop there either as after learning more about Mukuta's story and that 
his mother was unable to travel to the hospital in Atlanta from Zimbabwe, he graciously pledged to help reunite the mother and son by paying for her flight and travel expenses.
