Enlighten us, Bono!
During a recent interview, U2's Bono opened up about the failure of the first version of Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, and he had some inneresting points to make about it:
"What was great about Turn Off the Dark 1.0 was unusual and rare: magic, a pop-up Pop-Art opera with a bit of rock ’n’ roll circus thrown in. What was not right about it was a catalog of commonplace problems — story knots, bad sound and finally a failure to cohere, meaning that the whole was not greater than the sum of the parts, as wonderful as some of those parts were."
"In Turn Off the Dark 2.0, the myth of Arachne does not overpower the reason people are there…to discover what makes Peter Parker a superhero, which in the end turns out not to be his spider senses, but his personal integrity and especially his humility — something I hope all of us in this process have learned from."
Def sounds like they may have gotten it right this time! Assuming nobody else gets hurt, they've got our support!
Good luck, revamped Spider-Man team!
