It has been reported that Marvel Comics is preparing a musical based on the popular graphic novel "Spideman". According to Billboard.com - preparations are underway, writing is taking place, auditions are being held... It's really on. The musical will be directed by Tony award winner Julie Taymor.
Now - apart from the fact that U2 has built a solid career of rock and roll music. I can't help but think, a musical? Really? Not withstanding the musical "Tommy" which featured the musical endeavors of the Who, I wonder what Bono is thinking.

All in all I guess we will just have to wait and see. As for me... I'm not holding my breath.
