"Spider-Man, Spider-Man. Does Whatever a Spider Can."

Well, this is it. As Sister Myotis says, "This is an End Times sign"...


"The new Julie Taymor musical Spider-Man could arrive on Broadway as early as 2009, according to a report on IESB.net.

"Lion King Tony winner Taymor will direct Spider-Man, which features a score by Bono and The Edge of U2. No casting, theatre or timetable has been announced."

Since I'm a musical theatre-loving, fanboy fag, you might think that this news would have me bouncing off of and trying to crawl up the walls. But no.


Even with the great, visionary director Julie Taymor at the helm, I can't help thinking that we're about to suffer through another It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's Superman.

For those of you who don't know that show, here's just a small taste of just how bad the combination of showtunes and superheroes can be...

I don't know which is sadder... the fact that they're making a spiderman musical, or that you knew where to find that superman video....

looks like I'll be saving money on those tickets :)

Was that from the "Electric Company" or something?

Was that the Man of Steel or the Man of Squeal?

The only redeeming qualifier is that he looked good in the tights and his undies were riding up the side of his arse .... My mind has officially been scarred Stephen. That was atrocious and I actually like cheesy stuff.

Spider-Man the Musical... bad idea.
