He’s conquered the box office, but can Spider-Man cast his net over Broadway as well? Variety reports that a ”Spider-Man” musical is in the works. According to Variety, the lineup of talent behind the musical includes such heavy-hitters as U2’s Bono and the Edge (who’d write the songs); filmmaker Neil Jordan (”The Crying Game,” ”Interview With the Vampire”), who’d write the book; and director Julie Taymor, whose Tony-winning production of ”The Lion King” is still a top draw on Broadway after nearly seven years. Producing would be Tony Adams, who also brought a successful stage version of the movie ”Victor/Victoria” to Broadway a few years ago. Neither Marvel Comics nor Adams would confirm the project to Variety. Peter Cromarty, a spokesman for the production, declined EW.com’s request for a comment, except to say that an official announcement would be coming shortly.
