Star Trek producer Damon Lindelof regrets poking fun at the latest Spider-Man stage catastrophe as a stuntman fights for his life in hospital.
Lindelof insists he had no idea the latest mishap onstage in the superhero musical on Broadway was so serious when he tweeted, "With great power, comes great respWAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGHSMASHCRASHKATHUMP!!!!!" on Monday (20Dec10).
His remarks followed Internet footage of stunt double Christopher Tierney falling from the stage during a preview performance.
He suffered several broken ribs and internal bleeding after his safety cable snapped.
After learning just how seriously Tierney had been injured Lindelof tweeted fans, "Bad taste. Honest regrets. And hoping for a speedy recovery."
