LOS ANGELES, California (Hollywood Reporter) — Get ready for “Spider-Man: The Broadway Musical.”
That may not be the official title, but Marvel Studios is putting the pieces together for a musical on the Great White Way starring the popular superhero.
Julie Taymor, who won Tonys for direction and costume design for the Broadway production of “The Lion King,” will direct, with U2′s Bono and the Edge creating new music and lyrics for the project.
Auditions are taking place, and a reading is scheduled for the summer. No dates for a Broadway opening have been set.
