Spider-Man Leaps Off a 20-Story Building in Manhattan and Saves Mary Jane in Real Life by Improv Everywhere

For the latest mission in their ongoing Movies in Real Life series, Improv Everywhere brings Spider-Man to life by having him leap off of a 20-story building in Manhattan to rescue Mary Jane in real life. Random New Yorkers, who watched the amazing stunt take place from the street below, were very surprised by what took place. The video was directed by Charlie Todd and produced by Deverge.

We worked with parkour and stunt performer Richie Rodriguez, who is no stranger to these types of jumps. We also partnered with the Brooklyn Climbers Association and had some of their trained professionals on board to oversee the safety of the stunt. We were confident this was something we could pull off safely, but there were many x-factors. We had no permission or permit for any of this. Our team found a building under construction on 34th Street that gave us easy roof access. We were able to sneak up our equipment over the course of three weekends.

Moments later a second Marty and Jennifer (played by identical twin actors) arrived on the scene.
