Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark: First Look

Posted by Grey Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Take a first look at the upcoming rock musical based on your friendly neighborhood web-slinger.

Skeptical over the effectiveness or rather the necessity of a Spider-Man musical, even if it's directed by Julie Taymor (2007's Across the Universe and the upcoming
"The Tempest") with music composed by U2's Bono and The Edge?

Me too. In any case, while the following pictures from the musical (Photographed by Annie Leibovitz and originally featured in Vogue magazine) are unlikely to sway your thoughts on it, you have to admit that they do look pretty fucking awesome. Do note that the side notes are excerpted from the Vogue's page.

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

The ill-intentioned Carnage (Collin Baja) goes after Mary Jane. Says Taymor: “I saw the inherent theatricality in it, and I couldn’t resist.”

CAPTIVE AUDIENCE

Mary Jane (Jennifer Damiano) falls into the clutches of the Green Goblin (Patrick Page). Will Spider-Man save the day?


WEB OF DESIRE

DAMSEL IN DISTRESS

Mary Jane fends off the multibladed Swiss Miss (Sean Samuels). “There are a lot of comic-book nerds out there who are in love with Mary Jane,” says Damiano. “I don’t want to let them down.”


ALONG CAME A SPIDER

“I feel more invincible onstage than anywhere else,” says Reeve Carney, who performs the title role (dancer and gymnast Emmanuel Brown, pictured here, is a stunt double).


The much-delayed Broadway musical is currently scheduled to begin previews on November 28th, 2010 at the Foxwoods Theatre on Broadway, with the official opening night scheduled for January 11th, 2011.
