Marvel.com was on hand at the Museum of Natural History during Spider-Man Week in New York in anticipation for the upcoming film "The Amazing Spider-Man," which opens in theaters & IMAX 3D nationwide on July 3. Star Andrew Garfield and Director Marc Webb made an appearance as Spider-Man himself webbed over to the museum to deliver a live Chilean rose tarantula to Norman Platnick, curator of the exhibition Spiders Alive!
Fans and press were on hand as Webb and Garfield questioned Platnick about the fascinating and complex exhibit, which in addition to live spiders, also features scale models of spiders, a climbable spider wall, fossils, and much more. Garfield also signed autographs and posed with fans after the event.
