Who Wanted To Play Spider-Man So Much He Attempted To Purchase Marvel Comics?

George Clooney
Rush Limbaugh
Steve Jobs
Michael Jackson

Answer: Michael Jackson

Eccentric pop star Michael Jackson had the kind of deep pockets that make the kind of impulses the rest of us quickly put to bed, like “I think I’ll buy a major comic book house in order to secure a role as my favorite character”, seem down right reasonable.

In early 2000, Micheal Jackson toured the Marvel offices and made a serious effort to buy the comic book giant. Although the rumor was that he wanted to play Professor X in an X-Men movie, Stan Lee later revealed in interview over a decade later that Michael’s real interest was to play Spider-Man.
