Spider-Man has been known to have a few clumsy landings throughout his time as a superhero, but his recent crash in California looks to have been one of the most painful yet.
The character was swinging dramatically through the air as part of his routine at Disney California Adventure Park's Avengers Campus when the incident took place yesterday (9 June), but you'll be glad to know no real Spider-Men were harmed in the process.
The crash actually involved a 'stuntronic', an animatronic machine capable of performing some of the impressive swings and jumps we're used to seeing from Spidey.
See his not-so-gracious landing below:
Unfortunately the robot's routine didn't quite go to plan yesterday, with footage from the scene showing Spider-Man performing multiple flips in the air before slamming straight into the side of a building, causing the structure to crumble.
The sight was met with exclamations of shock from the crowd, while on Twitter viewers expressed their relief there wasn't an actual human inside the suit and, having established that, described it as the 'funniest thing ever'.
Footage from the Avengers campus was shared on Instagram by user @mdglee_szm, who claimed the show 'briefly stopped for a couple of hours but was back up and running later'.
Another image from the scene shared by The Entertainment Connection showed workers appearing to try and repair the damaged building in the aftermath of the crash, with a caption explaining the wall 'breaks away' when faced in a head-to-head with Spider-Man.
A cast member from the Avengers Campus confirmed the wall was constructed using breakaway panels to WDWNT, adding they're designed to be replaced easily since they are 'used to The Hulk wrecking things'.
According to Blog Mickey, showtimes for the Spider-Man attraction were removed from the Disneyland app following Spidey's mishap, but they have since returned.
The superhero forms part of the entertainment on offer at the Avengers Campus, which also gives guests the chance to assist Spider-Man in trapping his Spider-Bots after they escape from a WEB Workshop, as well as to explore the Avengers Headquarters and Ancient Sanctum.
Following a rather crashy encounter with the W.E.B. Facility wall, Spider-Man is back to swinging above Avengers Campus again! 🕸 pic.twitter.com/leuNzWuLaQ— Disneyland News Today (@dlnt) June 9, 2022
In an update shared by Disneyland News Today, Spidey could be seen more successfully swinging his way across the campus in a video posted alongside the caption: "Following a rather crashy encounter with the W.E.B. Facility wall, Spider-Man is back to swinging above Avengers Campus again!"
Hopefully Spidey will be better at sticking the landing in future!
