A hospice in Atlanta was hoping to find someone to come in and impersonate Batman for a young boy named Mukuta with terminal cancer . . . because he's a huge Batman fan. And the call was answered by BEN AFFLECK.
He couldn’t be there in person, because he's filming a movie in Hawaii . . . but he reached out through FaceTime.
Mukuta didn't recognize Ben right away because he has a beard now, but he was excited when he figured it out. Ben also offered to help pay for Mukuta's mother to fly to the U.S. from Zimbabwe to see him.
