    J. Jonah Jameson Wins: The Spider-Man Musical Is Apparently A Mess

    Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, the most expensive musical in the history of musicals, launched a preview showing last night – and apparently had quite a bad showing. At least, that’s what the multiple reports of the show are saying. Apparently show was called to a halt five times during the showing as the various high flying elements of the show screwed up, leading to apparent 45 minute intermissions. This caused such frustration that at one point an audience member got up and started screaming “”I don’t know how everyone else feels, but I feel like a guinea pig today — I feel like it’s a dress rehearsal.”

    The New York Times also interviewed several members of the audience after the show, which was met with mostly negative responses, stating that the show didn’t make much sense, the plot was muddy, and that they would not be recommending it. However, one six year old thought it was quite exciting, so it looks like a target audience was revealed.

    On the plus side, New York Mayor J Jonah Jameson couldn’t be more thrilled.

    Once upon a time, Matthew Meylikhov became the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Multiversity Comics, where he was known for his beard and fondness for cats. Then he became only one of those things. Now, if you listen really carefully at night, you may still hear from whispers on the wind a faint voice saying, "X-Men Origins: Wolverine is not as bad as everyone says it issss."
