Stand Up To Cancer is going with a Spidey-city theme this year, New York City to be exact.
Andrew Garfield, who stars in The Amazing Spider-Man and is an ambassador for Stand Up To Cancer, explained why they went with the comic book hero for their 2012 fundraising shirts:
"One of the great things about Peter Parker (Spider-Man) is he’s a regular guy from Queens who is transformed into a hero. These shirts underscore the idea that anyone has the power to be a hero. Cancer is one of our greatest villains. I’m proud to join others in standing up to this disease."
The shirts also carry an extra special meaning for Andrew and his co-star slash girlfriend Emma Stone after the Spider-Man producer Laura Ziskin lost her battle with cancer while filming the flick in 2011.
