I Like a Musical Now and Then, but this?

Tony Award winning Julie Taymor is going to be directing a Spider-Man musical. Yeah, that's what I said, Spider-Man musical. With music and lyrics by Bono. That's right. U2's Bono.

I guess this is the sure sign that comic books have finally come into main stream culture. Spider-Man will be performed on stages with the likes of Cats and Lion King with fabulous costumes and music written by Bono. I have no idea if this will be any good at all though. And I doubt it would appeal to most of the comic book fan-boys, so this is definitely geared for a different audience.
