In the city that never sleeps there's plenty of magical things happening on New Years Eve.

This year fanboys and gals around the world will be given a special treat as our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man will make an appearance during the ball drop celebration in Times Square. The idea isn’t too far-fetched considering Spider-Man is a native of New York.

The ball drop is by far one of the most paramount events of NYE world-wide, and Columbia Pictures has taken on to that to promote The Amazing Spider-Man 2, by not only featuring him in the ball drop, but debuting a clip of the film’s Times Square sequence as well.

[UPDATE] Below is the clip released at Times Square last night, which was introduced by Stan ‘the Man’ Lee!

I must say as a native New Yorker, I’m excited about his appearances. Spider-Man and director Marc Webb swung by the Good Morning America studios earlier this morning to celebrate tonight’s festivities  There’s even an awesome ” NYE Wishing Wall” for Spidey fans who’d like to throw a special wish out into the spidey-verse and the upcoming new year.
