Want more? Here you go with a song…

… a song that sounds suspiciously like the song U2 did for Batman Forever.

    U2…Julie Taymor…Spider-man…I should be excited about this, but I’m not. Seems a cash-grab and I’m not sure how much more can be said about Spider-man that hasn’t been said in comic books or movies.

    That said, the song would be more gripping if the lyrics were different. Maybe somthing like “Spider-man, Spider-man, does whatever a spider can.”

    Call me when they do the Spider-pig (or Harry Plopper) musical.
