Spider-Man has been popping up all over New York City, which is an everyday event in the Marvel Universe. However, we’re talking about the real world here. Just the other day the hero appeared on Good Morning America with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb to talk about the upcoming film as well as the webslinger’s role in tonight’s big New Year’s Eve ball drop.
Now Marvel has released the above video showing Spider-Man training for the festivities, and also posing for some pictures. Dubbed “the official superhero of Times Square 2014,” Spidey looks ready to help ring in the new year. The televised event will also feature a first look at a scene or two from the Sony sequel.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Dane DeHaan, Jamie Foxx and Paul Giamatti. It opens May 2.
