Disney confirmed today that your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man will be seen swinging above the rooftops of Avengers Campus when the land opens this summer at Disney California Adventure! New test footage showcases Spidey soaring through the air and while Disney didn’t confirm it in their posting, it seems all but certain that the web-slinger is actually a “stuntronics” robotic figure which we’ve seen tested by Disney previously (watch that footage below).

Details are sparse on the new footage in terms of context to the land and whether or not a human performer will be used in conjunction with this figure in a new show or offering. In the meantime, before the land opens, you can still encounter Spider-Man daily in Hollywood Land.
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 including:
- The Worldwide Engineering Brigade – also known as “WEB” – which will house the new Spider-Man attraction where guests can sling webs alongside Spider-Man himself.
- Pym Test Kitchen, an all-new eatery, where Pym Technologies Researchers are using Ant-Man and the Wasp’s growing and shrinking technology to create super-sized and super small foods.
- Heroic encounters throughout the campus where guests can team up with some of their favorite Super Heroes including Spider-Man, Black Widow, Doctor Strange, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther and the Dora Milaje, Thor and Loki, Iron Man and for the first time, Ant-Man and The Wasp.
- Avengers Headquarters where guests may witness Earth’s Mightiest Heroes springing into action at a moment’s notice all over the building.
