    Producer to Stan Lee in 1975:

    Maybe Elton John or Mick Jagger Should Play Spider-Man


    Here’s a letter that producer Steve Krantz wrote to Stan Lee in 1975, giving his best pitch as to why Elton John and Mick Jagger could play the wall-crawler: “In the comic books, Spider-Man doesn’t sing or tap dance, so I think we can depart from comic book reality and cast him from the best standpoint of a musical fantasy picture.”

    Krantz goes on to indicate that he’d love for Lee to write story ideas/treatments, and that maybe in the future he’d want to move to Hollywood. (Spoiler: he would!)

    In the Some Things Never Change Department: “We will undoubtedly have the most orthodox complain bitterly about the casting, even if we played it as a straight action adventure.”
