Edited: November 4, 2010, 3:04pm PST

The Broadway show hasn’t even started and already Spidey himself, Kevin Aubin, is in the hospital. The stunt actor was hospitalized recently during a stunt test run for the new musical. Aubin broke both of his wrists when he was slingshotted from the backstage, testing out some of the stunts that would be used for Spider-Man’s web swinging.

“The flying in this musical is unprecedented for Broadway, and we’re going to urge the producers to make sure everything is as safe as possible.”

Rest assured, Spidey is expected to make a speedy recovery, and according to a rep from the show, the accident will not delay the show’s opening.
