Andrew Garfield Plays Basketball as Spider-Man During Break in Filming in New York (Video)

In The Amazing Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield and the filmmakers make it pretty clear that they have no idea how basketball works when Garfield, as Peter Parker, takes about seven steps before dunking from the 3-point line and breaking the backboard. The absurdity of the scene almost overshadows what is a decent superhero movie overall.

As it turns out, total ignorance of the rules of basketball don’t keep Garfield from enjoying the sport. During a break in filming The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in New York, the star joined some kids on a neighborhood court for a quick game of 2-on-1. The bonus: He was decked out in the full Spider-Man outfit.

Check out Garfield making these kids’ day in the video below.
