Alan Cumming Leaves ‘Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark’ Musical

Another cast member has left the long-awaited “Spider-Man” musical.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Alan Cumming has pulled out of “Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark” due to his increased role on the CBS television series, “The Good Wife.”

Cumming had been signed to portray Norman Osborn/Green Goblin for over a year before the production was hit by a series of high profile delays. Last month, Evan Rachel Wood — who was previously cast as Mary Jane Watson — also departed the troubled production due to a scheduling conflict. However, Reeve Carney is still attached play Peter Parker/Spider-Man.

Earlier this year, Cumming told MTV News about his belief that “Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark” will still happen.

I think it’s going ahead,” said Cumming. “I’m waiting to hear if we’re definite.”

“It’s like a lover who dumped you and wants you back,” added Cumming. “You’re a little scared to go back in case they dump you again.”

“Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark” is being directed by Broadway legend Julie Taymor with music and lyrics by U2’s Bono and The Edge. Back in January, The Edge also expressed his optimism about the production.

“We’re just waiting until all the production issues get resolved,” The Edge told MTV News. “It’s going to happen at some point. It’s really a case of when — that’s the question.”

Now that Alan Cumming has stepped aside, who should portray the Green Goblin on stage? And who should step in for Mary Jane Watson?
