Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield & cast bring The Amazing Spider-Man to NYC 6/25/12

The Amazing Spider-Man takes over New York City for a week

With awe-inspiring action, a heart-warming love story and a character we all know and love, "The Amazing Spider-Man" promises to be one of the most epic movies of the summer when it hits theaters July 3.

But a movie so epic deserves more than just a premiere to celebrate its opening. Thankfully, Spider-Man Week is coming to New York City to help get you pumped for "The Amazing Spider-Man" in style.

From June 25 to July 1, Spider-Man is taking over NYC with events in all five boroughs.

The week kicks off with an appearance by "The Amazing Spider-Man" cast on "The Today Show" on Monday, June 25. That night, you can meet The Lizard himself Rhys Ifans when he signs free posters and memorabilia at Forbidden Planet.

As you look to the sky to see if Spider-Man is web-slinging around Manhattan, be sure to check out the Empire State Building decked out in red and blue lights in honor of the beloved superhero.

The rest of the week is full of activities that are sure to get your Spidey senses tingling, from a tour of the NYC locations used in the filming of "The Amazing Spider-Man" to special screenings of past Spider-Man TV shows at the Paley Center to an exhibit of some "Wild, Wonderful Spiders" at the New York Botanical Garden if you're more into the real thing.

Want to be a superhero like Spider-Man? Join in the national day of service on Tuesday, June 26 that will help support Stand Up To Cancer. With volunteering opportunities set up all over the country, you don't even have to be in NYC to get involved. Head over to www.beamazing2012.com for all the info.

But if you are in the NYC area, take advantage of Spider-Man Week because a superhero as cool as Spider-Man should be enjoyed on and off the screen. You can check out the week's full list of events at Spider-Man Week in NYC's official website.
