(Radio.com) If you were on the Internet this past Friday (Nov. 15), there's a good chance you tuned in to follow the saga of "Batkid," AKA 5-year-old leukemia patient Miles whose dream of becoming Batman was made into a fantastical reality thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The city of San Francisco was transformed into "Gotham City," with an army of volunteers and even Major League Baseball team the San Francisco Giants working together to make Miles' wish come true as he whisked around town with Batman catching villains like the Joker and saving damsels in distress to the supportive cheers of thousands of onlookers.

As the Batkid phenomenon grew into such a massive collaborative endeavor, more luminaries have come out wanting to contribute to the project to make the moment as special as possible for Miles, including renowned composer Hans Zimmer, the man responsible for the music behind The Dark Knight movie trilogy who has written a special theme song specifically for Batkid.

"Yes, Hans did write a score for Batkid," Zimmer's publicist Rae Murillo confirmed to Radio.com Friday (Nov. 15). "We're not yet sure when or how the music will be incorporated, but I do know that there are different elements and surprises being rolled out as the day progresses, so we're just waiting to see how the music is going to be used." more on this story
