At Disney California Adventure Park in the United States, a Spider-Man robot went awry during a stunt.
The Spider-Man robot can be seen performing flips and swinging on a rope in an Instagram video. Seconds later, though, the landing appears to have gone awry.

The video was taken and shared on social media, immediately going viral. Others responded, “Dummy having a horrible day,” thinking it was a reference to a real person who had just died in a tragic accident. Spider-Man may need to ask Dr. Strange for another favor, according to one user. As another said, “Imagine if people thought it was a genuine person.”
After being slung from a rope that resembled a spider web, the Spider-Man robot launched into the air. However, Fox11 reports that the robot was supposed to land on a building when it slammed into the android.
After the incident, the performance was put on hold for a brief while before returning the next day, according to the news source.
On June 4, 2021, Disney California Adventure Park’s Avengers Campus reopened to the public.
In the meantime, robots have progressed so much in the last few years that they can now perform a wide range of tasks that would normally be performed by people. A new generation of humanoid robots, designed to do human-like activities, has also been unveiled by inventors who have stepped up their game. No matter how one feels about the prospect of humanoid robots shortly, the fact is that they will be a part of our lives.
