By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: Right around the time Sony and director Marc Webb will begin filming their update of the “Spider-Man” film franchise, old Web head will be making his Broadway debut.

The musical “Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark” will begin its much-anticipated preview performances on Nov. 14, said lead producer Michael Cohl. Opening night will then be set for Dec. 21, at the Foxwoods Theatre in New York City.

“Spider-Man” features music and lyrics by Bono and The Edge of the rock supergroup U2. Director Julie Taymor co-wrote the play’s book with Glen Berger.

According to the AP, “Spider-Man” is “destined to be one of the most expensive musicals in Broadway history,” and has been “in the works for six years.”

Between the musical, the upcoming movie, and the ongoing “Spider-Man” comic books, one has to wonder if we are approaching spectacular Spider-Man overkill. We’ll soon find out.
