NEW YORK (AP) - Spider-Man is returning to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Macy's spokesman Orlando Veras said Monday the company negotiated with Marvel comic books and Sony Pictures to bring the
wall climber back to the spectacle.
The new balloon depicts a more muscular, crawling Spider-Man.
Robin Hall, the parade's executive producer, says it also will appear in 2010 and 2011.
The original balloon debuted in 1987 and retired after the 1998 parade.
