After months of delay, one of the songs from the upcoming off-Broadway musical ,”Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” made its debut last week on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
And with the show finally inching closer to opening night, a few details about it are slipping out, including the fact that we’ll see at least six villain in the second act–and that one of them will be Carnage.
“We have this thing in Act Two, where Spider-Man’s powers keep rising and rising and you meet what we call ‘The Sinister Six/Seven.’ We have Kraven, Carnage, Lizard, a new one we’ve created, Swiss Miss,” director Julie Taymor tells MTV News.
She also says the musical’s version of the Green Goblin won’t necessarily follow the one we’ve met in the comic books, but instead be more of a blend of the Green Goblin and Doc Ock.
“He’s a real scientist, who’s a real southerner — he believes he’s going to help combat the world as it is, environmental disasters,” she says. “He believes that he has to prepare people, so he’s creating through DNA transfers and this and that, the ability for humans to protect themselves when the tides rise and global warming. It’s very current. It’s very very now, even though we do blend periods.”
