That's right, true believers: Marvel.com is reporting that a Spider-Man musical will hit Broadway in 2010. Now, normally something like this sounds like it would be terrible, but I'm actually kind of excited.
Entitled "Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark," the show will open Thursday, February 18, 2010 at Broadway's Hilton Theatre. And it seems to have some decent talent behind it: in the director's chair is "The Lion King"'s Julie Taymor, and original music is being provided by U2, strangely enough. This actually seems like it could be a fun night out.
(And I have to say, I'm kind of proud of the headline I came up with for this post.)
