There was no turning off the dark this weekend for “Spider-Man,” as the Department of Labor slapped the $65-million show with two safety violations and “Saturday Night Live” lampooned its spate of actor injuries.

The violations stemmed from a December accident when a stuntman plunged 20 feet after a safety harness failed, and two accidents that injured actors being slung across stage.

A state official said the show the DOL will continue unannounced inspections. A show spokesman said it’s “in full compliance of DOL guidelines.”

SNL, meanwhile, turned the show’s troubles into a commercial for a personal injury lawyer aimed at the show’s audience.
