Give me a freaking break.  Spider-Man, The Musical?  This is about as good an idea as bring Tarzan to the Broadway stage or Legally Blonde.  Dark Horizons reports that Marvel is giving considering to Broadway for a staged musical to be directed by Julie Taymor ("The Lion King").  Readings begin this summer.  U2's Bono and The Edge will create the music.  This musical marks the first time a Marvel character has been the subject of a Broadway show. 

Exactly.  This has disaster written all over it.
