Variety reports that Evan Rachel Wood has dropped out of the Broadway show "Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark."
The production is rumored to be getting previews in late summer ahead of an official opening around Halloween.

Producers of Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark," in which Wood would have played Mary Jane opposite Reeve Carney as Peter Parker and Alan Cumming as the Green Goblin, confirmed the exit.

"Evan Rachel Wood has departed 'Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark' due to a scheduling conflict," they said. "Casting is underway to find a new Mary Jane to join the rest of the cast in the production."

The show, helmed by Julie Taymor, will feature music by U2's Bono and the Edge.

There are some things that should not be musicals and anything with Superheroes are some of them. lol. I hated the Music Miestro episode of Batman Brave and the Bold. BATMAN DOES NOT SING!!!
Then again I hate BB&TB all together so yeah. Evan Rachel Wood is talented but she ruined one of the characters in True Blood so she lost points...

I honestly dont think this will ever get made at this rate! However, I sort of hope it does because although it will probably be awful it does has the potential, if done properly, to be something special! :)

I've only seen Wood in The Wrestler and she was great in that so it's a pity she's left this!
