The fight was captured on video
“The guy was harassing a number of performers, other costumed folks,” witness Geoff Goldberg told the tabloid. “They’ve notoriously had issues with him in the past.”
Goldberg was the man responsible for capturing 30 seconds of the brawl on video, though the clip failed to capture the start or outcome of the fracas. The video begins with Spidey throwing the first punch (and kick).
