Spidey swinging into Times Square tonight

The official superhero of Times Square (and unofficial superhero of NYC) will be in the crossroads of the world for the big ball drop to help usher in 2014 tonight.

The wall-crawler and new York city haven’t always seen eye to eye in the past, but Spider-Man himself will indeed be in the house for the world’s biggest New Year’s Eve celebration tonight. Spidey has been named the Official Super Hero of Times Square 2014 by the Times Square Alliance and Countdown Entertainment, the co-organizers of Times Square New Year’s Eve celebration.

“We welcome Spider-Man, an international icon who has always embodied the spirit of New York, to Times Square this New Year’s Eve,” said Tim Tompkins, President of the Times Square Alliance. “He will be an amazing addition to the program.”

“We’re thrilled that Spider-Man will be joining the Times Square New Year’s Eve Celebration,” added Jeff Straus, President of Countdown Entertainment. “We’re looking forward to everything being Amazing in 2014.”

“There’s no celebration like New Year’s Eve in Times Square,” said Marc Webb, Director of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. “There’s the sense of energy and excitement that you can only get in New York and we certainly felt that energy and excitement as we shot the entire film here. The people of New York City truly embraced our production, and it’s a wonderful feeling to be returning to Times Square to ring in the New Year.”

So keep in mind, if you’re going to be in the midst of the celebration tonight, keep your eyes skyward and you might catch a little web-swinging action courtesy of Marvel Comic’s number one Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man.
