The Edge Says 'Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark' Musical 'Is Going To Happen At Some Point'

Spider-Man is having a rough time of it lately with the cancellation of his blockbuster movie franchise and delays plaguing the massive "Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark" musical. While quite a few aspects of the Spidey musical are currently in limbo, one of the two well-known musicians responsible for the film's score — U2 bandmates Bono and The Edge — seems to think there's still hope for the friendly neighborhood webslinger to swing into Broadway... eventually.


"We're just waiting until all the production issues get resolved," The Edge told MTV News on the Golden Globe Awards red carpet. "It's going to happen at some point. It's really a case of when — that's the question."

The musician's comments follow the recent announcement that "Turn Off The Dark" will have its premiere delayed to Fall 2010 after initially planning to open its curtains February 25.

The production's cast is expected to include Evan Rachel Wood as Mary Jane, Alan Cumming as Norman Osborn/Green Goblin, and Reeve Carney as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Their current status, however, is uncertain given the new delays.
