Okay, I think we’re probably reaching Spider-Man saturation point here because after several rumours Marvel released a statement yesterday confirming that Spider-Man is indeed headed to Broadway … as a musical no less.
Hot on the heels of the release of Spider-Man 3 (and all the attendant discussion of what will form the plot to Spider-Man 4), the show is to be directed by Julie Taymor, who directed The Lion King on Broadway, with music and lyrics by U2’s Bono and The Edge.
Hello Entertainment, Marvel Entertainment and Sony are producing the Spider-Man musical, which, as yet, doesn’t have an official name or opening date.
Marvel did say that a reading for the show would take place this summer, and Playbill.com reports that reading will take place in New York on 12 and 13 July.
You just know someone’s going to try to make a reality TV show out of this, don’t you…
