U2's Bono and The Edge will provide the music and lyrics for the musical
A musical based on the Marvel comic book hero Spider-Man will open on Broadway in 2010.
Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark will include the story of the superhero's origins and will feature music and lyrics by U2 members Bono and The Edge.
It will be directed by Julie Taymor, the creative force behind Disney's long-running Lion King.
The musical will open in February 2010 at the Hilton Theatre with preview performances beginning in January.
The show is reportedly the most expensive Broadway production ever, costing $40m (£27.6m).
The Hilton Theatre as it is the only venue big enough to allow the superhero room to spin his way around the sprawling skyscraper sets.
Details on casting, or which villains will appear, have yet to be announced.
Tobey Maguire has starred as Spider-Man in three big-screen versions of the comic book franchise. He is expected to return for a fourth instalment, to be released in 2011.
