Stan Lee Calls Spider-Man Musical 'A Wonderment,' Worries About His Cameo

It goes without saying that "Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark" has had its fair share of difficulties. Between frequent stops and starts due to budget troubles and cast members dropping in and out, it hasn't been an easy road for the Spider-Man musical.

But at long last, the Broadway show is almost here — and according to Stan Lee, it's worth the wait.


"It's more than a Broadway musical," Lee told MTV News during an interview at New York Comic Con earlier this month. "It's a Broadway extravaganza!"

Leave it to Lee, a truly gifted artist when it comes to the hype machine, to speak so highly of "Turn Off The Dark." With music and costume designs currently available online, fans are bound to make their own judgments about the musical, for better or for worse. But in Lee's estimation, there is nothing out there quite like the "Spider-Man" musical.

"It's one of the greatest shows ever conceived and put together," he said. "It's a feast for the eyes. It's like watching the greatest dramatic show combined with the greatest circus. It's a wonderment, the show. You can't stop looking at it! You can't believe what you're seeing."

That's not to say that Lee doesn't see a few problems with the formula on "Turn off the Dark" — namely the fact that he might not have a role to play.

"The only problem with it is, I'm not sure how I can do a cameo on a show that they show two times a day," he laughed. "I don't have the time to go there. But we'll find something out!"
