WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Drawing from over forty years of Marvel comic books for inspiration, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, spins a new take on the mythic tale of Peter Parker, a teenager whose unremarkable life in Queens is turned upside-down--literally--when he's bitten by a genetically-altered spider and wakes up the next morning clinging to the ceiling.
Bullied by his classmates and tortured by an unrelenting crush on next-door-neighbor Mary Jane Watson, this science geek discovers he has suddenly been endowed with astonishing powers. He soon learns, however, that "with great power comes great responsibility."
Maligned by the media, buffeted by financial woes, and stretched thin by the expectations of the world-at-large, Peter now must struggle to navigate the perilous and peculiar demands of being a web-slinging superhero.
With the characters in Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark ranging from old familiar favorites to supervillains never-before imagined, Spider-Man's battles will hurtle the audience through a story both recognizable and unexpected, culminating in an eye-popping, ultimate test for this iconic figure.
