Spidey The Musical, Coming Soon

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesFilm FlickersBono

The long talked about Spider-Man musical is finally coming to Broadway!

The stage adaptation of the character and comic book has been in the works for the past three and a half years. Bono and U2 are set to write the music. And Julie Taymor (The Lion King) is set to direct.

With a fourth Spider-Man movie scheduled for 2011, the musical would mark Marvel Studio's expansion to the stage, a feat that has proved successful for the Walt Disney Company, and Marvel Studios Chairman David Maisel's prior Broadway experience with Tony award-winning Fosse should come in handy.

Marvel Studios was created by Marvel Entertainment Inc. to bolster its revenue from movies and adaptations based on its comic book characters. And, with the success of Iron Man the move has proved more than profitable.

We can only hope for the casting reality TV show.

The Spider-Man musical should hit Broadway in 2009, or so they say.

    Oh Dear Lord, this makes me vomit a bit. Purely out to get that family of 4 'entertainment' dollar. Take your son to see Gypsy not Spidey! Sure the chances your boy will become a bit gay are greater, but for fuck sake Spider-man the Musical??? Eww!

    Search YouTube: Giuliani Responds to Sarah Palin Watching Tina Fey on SNL and then go sample on iTunes Miniature Tigers - Tell It to the Volcano, it's one of the best albums of the year and the album cover is my avatar.

    Thanks!

    WTF. Nothings sacred any more!

    superhero musicals never work out.
    and they already had auditions in NYC a couple months ago, idk if there is going to be a tv show but it should be cast already if not in the very final stages of it

    What about Batman: The Musical?!



  39. 39
