Disney's new Spider-Man attraction, coming to Disney's California Adventure later this year, will feature a world-first, with an animatronic version of the web-slinger set to perform live-action stunts in the new Avengers Campus.

New footage shows a fully-costumed Spider-Man performing acrobatic high-flying stunts, with Disney promising that visitors would get a glimpse of him "swinging above the rooftops of Avengers Campus".

Disney unveiled robotic stunt technology in July 2018, showcasing an autonomous robotic stunt double capable of incredible feats without the danger of using a real stuntman.

Called Stuntronics, the animatronic robot can control and alter its pose in mid-air, as well as guaranteeing the completion of sophisticated aerial stunts with precision every time.

The robot represents a significant improvement to traditional animatronics, as it can be flung from a wire 60ft (18.3m) into the air and execute acrobatics while in flight.

Typically, animatronic figures only run through a specific pre-built cycle of movements and remain in a fixed spot. However, the Stuntronics figure is different from other models, as it is significantly larger, weighing 90 pounds and assuming a human form. With a Spider-Man skin, it creates a version of the Marvel superhero as true and realistic to the character as possible.

Avengers Campus will be home to a number of experiences when it opens in Q3, including Worldwide Engineering Brigade (WEB) – a ride where guests can sling webs alongside Spider-Man.

It will also feature the Pym Test Kitchen, as well as the Avengers Headquarters, set to open in phase two, where guests will be able to board a Quinjet and fly alongside the Avengers in an adventure to Wakanda. Avengers Campus will also come later to Disneyland Paris.
