Spider-Man star Kirsten Dunst has given her backing to the troubled musical about the webslinging superhero, insisting she’s desperate to see the Broadway show.
Stan Lee‘s POW! Entertainment, the comic book legend who co-created Super Heroes such as Spider-Man and The Hulk, and Yoshiki, Asia’s most influential music artist who is songwriter/producer/drummer/pianist for Japan’s biggest rock band X Japan, have joined forces to develop a music Super Hero comic book and motion comic series that will incorporate both Lee’s literary genius and Yoshiki’s music genius. While Lee and Yoshiki are still in the early stages of the project, the as yet untitled motion comic book series is expected to debut in 2011.
“When I met Yoshiki,” said Lee, Founder, Chairman and Chief Creative Officer of POW@ Entertainment, “I was so impressed with his musical talents and unique creative eye, that I knew immediately I wanted to work with him on something special where we could combine our strengths. Creating a music Super Hero character was the natural evolution of our efforts.”
