So far, Julie Taymor’s Spider-Man musical, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark looks like it will be an absolute train wreck.  A TV commercial for the production has now gone online and it does nothing to change my opinion.  However, if I lived in New York or were making a trip up there, I would totally go see it because I enjoy rubbernecking. If you end up seeing it and want to send in a review, we’ll happily run it.

Hit the jump to check out the TV spot.  Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark begins previews tomorrow and is set to open on January 11, 2011.

    I’m going to see it on the 15th. If no one has submitted a review by then I’ll probably write one up for you.

      I hope someone gave you tickets for free cause I can’t see spending hard earned money on that disaster.

        What’s next X-Men musical………..Oh my God,they can’t do that. We have got to stop them!

    I bet it will be successful. Certainly not a trainwreck. As long as its decent, it attracts a family crowd. If plays are anything like movies, a semi-decent production that draws a family crowd will be very financially successful.

    If Cats can run for decades and make a bajillion dollars, anything is possible.

    I cant stop laughing at that picture of Carnage. Looks like he wants to molest MJ, not kill her.

      Look at him with his tongue sticking out, its hilarious.

      That would have precedent in the tentacle sex of Japanese pornography. Nice

    We definitely need more gay superheroes.

    it will be known as the Ishtar of Broadway. looks horrendous, what were they thinking? has any superhero been made into a play before? why do they think Spiderman would be what the theater crowd is looking for?
