Spidey villain cast!

06.29.2009

Well, sort of. Alan Cumming has been cast as Norman Osborn aka The Green Goblin in the upcoming Broadway Musical "Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark", with Evan Rachel Wood set to play Mary Jane. There's been much hype surrounding the musical, with the visionary Julie Taymor set to direct and U2's Bono and The Edge writing the music. The project's budget is reportedly $40 million and is being described as a large-scale "extravaganza" and a "circus rock-'n-roll drama", with Spider-man set to swing between skyscrapers on stage. Now with MJ and the goblin cast, focus will turn towards casting the role of Spider-man himself. With previews set for February 25th, 2010 in New York City, Taymor and Co. better cast someone and cast someone fast. I would suggest my one-eyed uncle Trevor but he can't sing, so how about Adam Lambert instead?

Remember that scene in Spiderman 3 when emo Parker is dancing around. Imagine that for 2 hours.
This musical will fail.

spiderman musical!?!?

I was cool with the Lion King but this Spiderman sounds fucking ridiculous!

What's next, Transformers: The Musical?! Love to see how they'd handle the Mikaela character.

why

ever since i heard of this spiderman musical...the only thing i could think of is: why?

why would anyone make a musical about spiderman...i just don't get it.
why don't they make a musical based on the movie Independence Day while they're at it? i wonder who would play Will Smith's character?

So Nightcrawler's going to be the Green Goblin now? Interesting.

I almost fell for that title, but I had already read the story over at the Hollywood Reporter.

joblo often misleads readers

They've been posting misleading headlines for years.
