He’s lied about his heritage, he’s lied about his schooling, however now Congressman George Santos has formally gone into the darkish. Spider-Man: Flip Off the Darkish, to be actual.

A brand new report from Bloomberg claims that the New York congressman, who has been caught in quite a few falsehoods over the previous few weeks, informed donors to his 2021 marketing campaign that he was among the many producers of the ill-fated Spider-Man Broadway musical, which ran for about two and a half years from 2011-2014. One of many present’s precise producers, Michael Cohl, informed Bloomberg that Santos had nothing to do with it.

That is, objectively, hilarious, and stuffed with so many layers. The primary being that Spider-Man: Flip Off the Darkish is just not a well-regarded present. It was probably the most costly Broadway exhibits ever, had innumerable points on its technique to the stage, and was not one thing most followers or critics loved. Then, and now, its title doesn’t elicit constructive ideas. So why would anybody, not to mention somebody operating for workplace, select to be related to it? In the event you’re going to lie, make it a very good lie. Say you produced Hire or Phantom of the Opera or perhaps in case you needed to do one thing rather less well-known, an Avenue Q or one thing. However saying “I produced Spider-Man: Flip Off the Darkish” is like bragging that you just greenlit Morbius.

Then there’s the truth that the information doesn’t observe in actuality. In accordance with the report, Santos wasn’t fairly dwelling the Broadway producer life when this could’ve occurred. Round that point, he was a customer support rep for the Dish Community and based a gaggle to assist sick animals. He additionally lived in Brazil for a few of the time in query. These are all completely good and noble issues however none of them have something to do with Broadway or Spider-Man. Besides perhaps if Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man was airing on Dish.

Really, the George Santos avalanche of deceit might have reached its pinnacle as soon as it touched upon the world of superheroes. Subsequent factor you’ll know, he’ll declare to be rebooting DC or directing a brand new Avengers film.
