Andrew Garfield Plays Basketball in a Spider-Man Costume (Video)

Actor Andrew Garfield is busy shooting scenes for The Amazing Spider-Man 2—which is expected to be released in theaters sometime in 2014—all over New York City.  But as busy as he may be, he’s not too busy to find time to shoot some hoops in Chinatown.  Although, he was apparently too busy to take off his Spider-Man costume before doing so.

The result was a video of what many people probably thought was some crazy dude playing basketball in a Spider-Man costume.  Here’s how one Redditor broke down the scene at PS 1:

“I was one of the guys playing basketball on the far left side of the court. The movie guys were filming the same scenes of Spiderman on the front of an NYPD emergency vehicle driving down Madison Street. Garfield started playing ball with the kids when it started drizzling and they stopped shooting for safety reasons. Funny thing is that it continued to drizzle and they decided to resume filming and on one of the next takes Garfield slips and hurts himself and they had to take a long break.”

Unfortunately, we don’t have footage of the injury, but here’s 49 seconds of Spider-Man playing basketball.  Enjoy!
