Often, we've woken in the middle of the night thinking that it's strange nobody makes musicals about superheroes - after all, both are nothing without glorious costumes and are based on the idea of apparently ordinary people suddenly doing extraordinary things (either bursting into song, or being faster than a speeding bullet.) Then we wake up in the morning, and realise it's a stupid idea which would be the financial equivalent of offering your kidneys on Freecycle, and forget the idea.

Now, though, we hear that Bono and The Edge have signed up to get into musical theatre by providing a score for a song-and-dance version of Spiderman.

Yes, Spiderman: The Musical.

Meanwhile, it seems that hanging around with Johnny Borrell (yes, that's all back on) is rubbing off on Kirsten Dunst, as she's putting on a superb strop at the backstage rejiggling for Spiderman 4:

"It's disrespectful to the whole team, I think, to do that," she tells Entertainment Weekly about the prospective of big name cohorts dropping out. "And audiences aren't stupid. It'd be a big flop without me, Tobey or Sam. That would really not be the smartest move. But they know that already. [Sony chief] Amy Pascal would never do that."

You could, however, sack the drummer and guitarist without disturbing things overmuch...

GigoIt.com is a improvement over Freecycle where free items are listed. It has a lot of advantages over Freecycle like pictures and search and it's easier for beginners to pick up.There are lots of advanced features too, like RSS, a Google Earth layer, and gmail-style conversation views. I hope you check it out.

i remember ages ago (probably when the second Spiderman film came out) reading some comment she made about how she didn't see how they could make any more than 2 films.. sorta missing the whole 40+years of comics really... not really showing a whole lot of respect for the "whole team" now are we Miss. Dunst?... then again... you do like Johnny Borrell... a man who is living proof that, yes audiences are stupid...

(she possibly also likes Gigolt.com?!?! wtf is that?)

'It wouldn't be a success without you', Kirsten? Yes, that'll be your massive star drawing power, as demonstrated in the likes of recent smash hits like Marie Antoinette, Elizabethtown, Wimbledon, The Cat's Meow, etc, etc, etc.

Shut up you daft bint, and stop assailing my eyes with your snaggle-toothed grimness and astonishingly poor taste in boyfriends.
