Spider-Man Stands Up To Cancer

If you've been to the movies recently chances are you've seen the ad for the Stand Up To Cancer campaign. Its basically a bunch of high profile actors shown in various settings standing up, which acts as a cue for all the common people behind them to stand up in unison. One of the scenes features Tobey Maguire at what appears to be a large stadium standing (however I'm pretty sure its a green screen but I appreciate the thought). Why am I telling you this? Because now you have the opportunity to stand up with Maguire (assuming he reprises his role in Spider-Man 4) for at least a mere $5,100. That's right kids. eBay is currently hosting an auction for Stand Up To Cancer that ends Friday, September 5th. What exactly are you bidding on you ask?
  • A visit to the set of Spider-Man 4 (one shooting day) - Location of visit will be determined by Sony Pictures based on scheduling of visit
  • A meet and greet with the cast (1 hour)
  • A walk-on/ extra role in the film for the auction winner only - Role and length of screen time to be determined by Sony Pictures
  • Trip to the New York premiere - Location of American premiere may be changed at Sony Pictures’ discretion
  • Designer outfits to wear to premiere for winner and guest from top designers - Designers to be chosen by Sony Pictures (Winner and guest may keep the outfits)
  • Winner and Guest will walk the premiere’s red carpet
Currently, the bidding is at $5,100 but it wouldn't surprise me if it kept climbing (there's already 23 bids). You have to go through quite the rigorous pre-approval process to bid (of course with good reason). Hell, it'd be worth it alone just to spend an hour with Stan Lee or Bruce Campbell on the set (no offense to the rest of the cast, but come on). If you've got the extra scratch then by all means bid it up. Anything that gets money towards fighting cancer is a fantastic cause. Now, this auction seems a little too good to be true if you ask me, but hey, if it raises money for a good cause then so be it. I think the biggest caveat is "if" the movie actually gets made, which seems pretty inevitable at this point but you never know. Spider-Man 4 set package auction
