Another man dubbed "real-life Spider-Man", for running down a tower really fast
|NEWS - OFFWORLD|
"Spider-Man! / Spider-Man! / Does everything a spider can / Spins his web / ... / Runs down towers really fast...?"
Here's someone who, despite some of the early reactions, obviously can't wait until The Amazing Spider-Man is released on 3 July 2012. While most of us would maybe, you know, watch the trailers, and go "I can't wait until The Amazing Spider-Man comes out", this guy goes one further and actually does death-defying stunts. Not to save the day or anything, just for the fun of it.
Mark Sluszny broke the vertical run record, descending the outside of Brussels' Belgacom tower, which is 102m high, in a mere 15.5 seconds. That's right, if you're at the top of a really tall building, the obvious thing to do is to run *towards* the ground really fast.
Still, at least he got compared to a superhero, becoming roughly the 29th person to be dubbed "the real-life Spider-Man", along with the likes of Dan Goodwin and Alain Robert.
It seems all you have to do to be compared to a superhero these days is to do something really, really difficult and impressive. What is the world coming to?
The question is, which is *the* real-life Spider-Man? It's almost like that "I'm Spartacus!" scene in Spartacus, except with Spider-Man instead of Spartacus.
The Amazing Spider-Man stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, and Irrfan Khan, and is released on 3 July 2012, which won't come any sooner no matter how many buildings you run down the side of.
