New Villain Created for "Spider-Man" Musical (aka: JPX hates musicals)
I'll kill you with chocolaty goodness!
From worstpreviews, NY Post spoke to director Julie Taymor (The Lion King), whose $40 million musical "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" is set to open in New York at the Hilton Theater in January 2010. "[Spider-Man] is not going to sing and dance in tights," she said, adding that it's more like a "circus rock-'n'-roll drama."
The musical will feature lots of villains for Spidey to battle, including Green Goblin, Carnage, Electro, Rhino, Swarm, Lizard and a completely new one.
Taymor has invented a brand new baddie for the show -- Swiss Miss, whose costume, designed by Oscar winner Eiko Ishioka (Bram Stoker's Dracula), consists of rotating knives and swirling corkscrews.
