Spider-Man Musical Bloody Enough to Inspire New ‘Law & Order’ Episode

In the criminal justice system, great power comes with great responsibility…

Joining the infamous ranks of the alleged O.J. Simpson murders and the alleged Michael Jackson child molestations and the alleged murder of JonBenet Ramsey by her parents is Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. Like those other atrocities, the disastrous Broadway musical based on the Marvel Comics superhero will serve as the inspiration for a new episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent.In what is thought to be the final season of Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Detectives Goren (Vincent D’Onofrio) and Eames (Kathryn Erbe) will investigate the suspicious death of someone associated with a Broadway musical called “Icarus” that is obviously based on the Spider-Man production. TV Line reports that ejected Turn Off the Dark director Julie Taymor’s fictional counterpart is depicted as flamboyant, “high-strung” and a “born-again drunk,” and that Bono — who with his U2 bandmate The Edge composed the music for the Spidey show — will be reflected as “Arno,” who’s described as “a secretly bisexual rock-star composer who’s cheating on the missus with a colleague.”

It’s unknown whether one of the many actors who’ve been maimed in the production will be the obligatory murder victim or if it will be “Arno” or the Taymor analogue, but with the enormous amount of money that’s been thrown into the Turn Off the Dark hole — nearly $70 million — it’s not hard to imagine a financial motive to murder at least one person involved in the production, although we really hope the fictional crime is one committed out of mercy.
