Disney Resurrects The Spider-Man Broadway Musical

It looks like the lights are indeed back on for Spider-Man’s Broadway adventures. After months of speculation and “will-they, won’t-they” head scratching amid casting announcements and financial woe rumors, it appears Marvel Comics’ recently acquired parent company is footing the bills necessary to push “Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark” ahead on Broadway.

The most expensive Broadway show in history, estimated at a $35 million budget, “Turn Off The Dark” is set to star Reeve Carney, Evan Rachel Wood and Alan Cumming with music by U2’s Bono and The Edge

According to the New York Post, cashflow problems the show encountered this summer are being surmounted by Bono’s business partner Michael Cohl along with Disney, who is providing a “chunk” of the financing.

As Topless Robot points out, this is happening just one day after Sony announced it’s “Spider-Man 4″ cancellation and intentions for a cinematic reboot and could potentially be the work of Mephisto. Hopefully it’s more in line with Marvel’s upcoming “Heroic Age” planned after “Siege.” Otherwise, we’re all better off with the Spidey-costumed weirdos who’re already hanging out in Times Square.
