SINGAPORE (AFP) – The stars of the movie “Amazing Spider-Man 2″ will lead this year’s global Earth Hour lights-out event on March 29 which is being coordinated in Singapore, organisers WWF said Thursday.
“Spider-Man will join the film’s stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Jamie Foxx in the event, helping to switch off the lights across Singapore’s signature Marina Bay skyline,” the environmental campaign group said in a statement.
WWF has named the movie superhero as ambassador for the Earth Hour global campaign to turn the spotlight on climate change. An unnamed person will play Spider-Man at the ceremony.
WWF Singapore spokesman Sourav Roy said Spider-Man can help inspire more people to join the movement.
