Huh? Okay, I like comics...

but a Broadway musical? Of Spider-Man?

Spider-Man musical to open in December: The long-awaited Spider-Man musical is to open on Broadway in December, its producers have said

Inspired by the Marvel Comics hero, Spider-Man Turn off the Dark spins a new take on the story of teenage science geek Peter Parker, who is bitten by a genetically-altered spider and wakes up with superhero powers....

The musical is reportedly the most expensive Broadway production to date, with a budget of almost $50m (£31.7m), thanks to its sprawling skyscraper sets.
Music is by Bono/the Edge of U2. I'm beginning to think they'll try to make a musical out of anything. But Marvel must be happy, as I'm sure there had to be a fee for licensing or some sort of involvement.
