Harvey Weinstein Found GUILTY

The First TV Spot for Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark

Every bit of information about Broadway’s Spider-Man musical has focused on how ambitious it is, and how fraught its development has been, without covering the things that would allow the media consumer to make a judgment on whether or not all this fuss is actually worthwhile.

Even this TV Spot lays out the basics by driving up and shouting: “It’s Spider-Man!  You should go see it because it’s about Spider-Man!  And it’s going to be the most musically, physically, and visually daring thing on Broadway ever!”

Which leaves us calling after the fleeing vehicle “But… what’s the plot?  How are you getting to Carnage without Venom?  Isn’t that kind of a lot of villains for one show?  What does the title even mean?!”  But the Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark car doesn’t hear us, and drives on.
