First Song from Spidey Musical SPIDER-MAN: TURN OFF THE DARK; Plus a First Look at the Costumes

     September 10, 2010


If you didn’t much care for emo-Peter Parker in Spider-Man 3, it’s looking like the Julie Taymor-directed Spider-Man musical, Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark won’t be to your liking.  This morning on Good Morning America, Spider-Man/Peter Parking actor Reeve Carney performed the song “Boy Falls from the Sky” which was written by U2’s Bono and The Edge.  It sounds a lot like U2’s recent output (i.e. terrible).  The production has been plagued with problems and producer Michael Cohl told the New York Times that he’s doubtful he’ll recoup the musical’s $50-60 million budget.

Also, the costumes for Green Goblin and new villain “Swiss Miss” have also gone online and after seeing them and hearing this song, I’m also doubtful Turn off the Dark will recoup its $50-60 million budget.  Hit the jump to check out the costumes and watch a video of Carney’s performance on GMA.  Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark will debut November 14 on Broadway’s Foxwoods Theatre.  I wonder how many Spidey nerds will turn up out of morbid curiosity.
