A Singing Spiderman?

Until very recently, the character of Spiderman in the upcoming musical Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark  was not supposed to sing at all. Developments of late, however, suggest that there may be some last minute changes to the score, the scenes, and the musical play altogether. Reeve Carney, lead singer of the rock band Carney, has been cast as the webbed crusader, and this has begun a bit of speculation as to the future of the show. Hiring a professional singer to play the role of a non-musical character doesn’t seem to make too much sense. We do love surprise and intrigue, though, so this is most likely one of those good last minute changes.

As the Green Goblin, Alan Cumming has cast and appears to be looking forward to revitalizing yet another Marvel piece. The live stage is far different from the world of films, but this doesn’t seem to phase the seasoned action star, who is set to begin preproduction and rehearsals with the rest of the crew very shortly. Back in August of 2009, a few delays held up the planning and the actually launching of the endeavor, the casting elements undoubtedly having something to do with this.

Miss Mary Jane Watson will be played on the live stage by Evan Rachel Wood, a knock out actress with very little action or stage experience under her petite little belt. What she does have, however, are loads of presence, appeal, beauty, and talent, all of which producers hope will help us to fall in love with our beloved Spiderman’s girl. Then musical revival of Spiderman is set to hit the stage in 2010, and StubPass.com will keep you posted on all developments and news regarding this highly anticipated event.
