Today, Disney has shared that guests visiting Disney California Adventure park in the near future may be able to catch a glimpse of the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man himself swinging above the rooftops of Avengers Campus thanks to a “stuntronic” robot.

Check out this video of the Spider-Man animatronic practicing some of his amazing acrobatic feats at a top secret location:

In June 2018, Disney released footage of these “Stuntronics” in action, the latest development in audio-animatronics technology from Walt Disney Imagineering. These autonomous figures fly through the air performing, as you might have guessed, aerial stunts.

So, who’s excited to see Spidey swing by over the Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure (opening Summer 2020)?
