New York City is currently being bombarded with all sorts of super-heroism, as the cast and crew from "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" are in the Big Apple shooting the highly anticipated sequel. Anytime a big movie like this shoots in a city this stuffed with people, there are inevitably interesting encounters between pedestrians and big screen superheroes and villains (like when Jamie Foxx strolled through Times Square in his lightning-blue Electro make-up). And while amateur paparazzi have been capturing moments of impromptu Spider-mania throughout the shoot, nothing has come close to being as heartwarmingly adorable as the footage of Andrew Garfield, dressed head-to-toe in his Spider-Man ensemble, playing a pick-up game of basketball with two little kids.
The footage was supposedly filmed in Chinatown and if you look off to the side, you can see Garfield's super-adorable girlfriend (and "Spider-Man" co-star) Emma Stone with the dog. The little kids don't seem to be as thrilled as you would imagine they would be, possibly because Garfield is a pretty decent player and most probably because at some point their souls had left their bodies, hovering inches above their physical selves, just taking in the moment a friggin superhero decided to play with them from a heavenly vantage point. Quite frankly, it shows what a stand-up dude Garfield is and if you see anything on the internet (non-cat-related category) more adorable, it would shock us like Electro.
Whether or not Peter Parker's mad basketball skills factor into the plot of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" remains to be seen. The sequel opens next May.
