I just watched a movie review of Spiderman: Homecoming. Apparently this Peter Parker does AD! What a nice way to give us more exposure! biggrin.gif Are there any other times AD has been featured in such a major blockbuster?

Thanks for merging this thread for me (hadn't seen it earlier). Does the movie ever say how Peter Parker's school does at Nationals? It's probably one of New York's top teams in USAD history! (nothing against New York, but they must not have a lot of schools that compete in AcDec there and it looks like they haven't finished in the top ten at Nationals in 20+ years?)

NYC doesn't have teams. As I recall, NY's entry was an upstate school.

I'd find it more believable if it was a CA team. Spiderman has more of a West Coast attitude, anyway.

In fact, this year, Lyndonville Central High School is in a tiny town with a population of 812.

Haven't seen any Spiderman film, but for some reason I find this dubious. tongue.gif
