Michael Chabon’s Famous, Unfilmed “Spider-man 2” Script is Yours

Michael Chabon, who I’ll be seeing at Calvin’s Festival of Faith and Writing next week, isn’t just an acclaimed novelist. He also took a stab at the screenplay for Spider-man 2, and when I heard him speak about that in Seattle a few years ago, he talked about how the experience of writing a comic book movie for Hollyowod was not one he was eager to repeat.

Now, the script he wrote is available for download, at least for now, via McSweeneys.
