The next time you are walking through Disney California Adventure Park, look up. You just might see Spider-Man swinging from rooftop to rooftop. No, it’s not an optical illusion. You will actually see a Spider-Man web-slinging above your head.
According to Disney, as you walk around the new Avengers Campus area, you will see your friendly-neighborhood Spider-Man performing amazing acrobatics above the rooftops throughout the day. Here’s a video of Peter Parker himself practicing his moves in a top-secret location:
This new Spider-Man looks like he is a “stuntronic” — a robotic figure developed by Walt Disney Imagineering. Disney shared a sneak peek at this technology back in 2018, so now we get to see what it’s going to be used for!

“Wait, will we still get to meet Spider-Man?”
Yes, you will still get a chance to meet and take pictures with Spider-Man in Hollywoodland between his visits to Avengers Campus. He will be wearing his brand new, park-exclusive suit designed by Ryan Meinerding, Head of Visual Development at Marvel Studios.
“What else will be at Avengers Campus?”
According to Disney,
“When Avengers Campus opens this summer, guests will be recruited to become the next generation of Super Heroes. The campus will be home to a variety of new experiences giving guests the chance to feel the power, adventure and exhilaration of teaming up with some of their favorite Super Heroes.”
Those experiences will include a Spider-Man attraction housed in a building run by an organization called WEB–Worldwide Engineering Brigade, an Ant-Man and the Wasp-themed eatery called the Pym Test Kitchen, and a plethora of heroic encounters with your favorite Avengers such as Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, and Black Panther. You can also walk through Avengers Headquarters and watch your heroes spring into action at any moment’s notice.
Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure is bound to be one of if not the most immersive additions to a Disney park yet. Seeing Spider-Man swing from rooftop to rooftop only drives home that assumption. Marvel’s Avengers Campus opens this summer.
