The 25-year-old is promoting his new movie "Horns" at the annual gathering and since it was his first time there he came up with a novel way of exploring his surroundings without causing a fan frenzy, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"You don't go to Comic-Con without going down on the floor and seeing it all. And the way I came up with doing it was Spider-Man," said Radcliffe.

Explaining his reasons for choosing that particular comic book character, he said: "It's a great superhero and covers the face, so it was perfect."
