I don’t want to cast aspersions on something that lots of people have worked hard on (heh-heh…I said “hard on”), but having seen a video from the upcoming Spider-Man musical, I’m a bit nervous.
The songs are written by Bono and The Edge from U2, and this song they played on Good Morning America, “Boy Falls from the Sky,” didn’t really scream “Spider-Man” to me. Here, take a look.
Really, this just poses the question: Does Spider-Man really need to be a musical? Or more accurately, does a musical need to be Spider-Man? Don’t get me wrong; I love me some Spidey, but I dunno. Already people are saying that the “One More Day” storyline and “Spider-Man 3” are no longer the worst things to happen to the character.
