Achtung, Spider-man! (I am not making this up.)

What in the world?

Bono and The Edge… writing a Spider-man musical… for Julie Taymor.

Right.

Sure.

Why didn’t I see that coming?

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    Type

    Bono +Taymor +Spider-Man

    into Google News search.

    There are a lot of news sources reporting this TODAY.

    So, I’m not saying you’re wrong. Maybe it is an old April Fool’s story… I actually hope that it is.

    But if it is, they waited two weeks, and now a bunch of sources are reporting the story.

    April Fools 16 days late.
