The identities of Mary Jane Watson and Norman Osborn's Broadway incarnations has been revealed, and fans of Marvel's movies may find the actor behind the latest Green Goblin slightly familiar... well, if they can imagine the blue fur for themselves.

Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark will, as rumored for months, star Evan Rachel Wood as Peter Parker's long-term love interest Mary Jane, alongside X2: X-Men United's Nightcrawler, Alan Cummings, as arch-villain Norman Osborn, the Green Goblin. The actor playing the eponymous hero remains unknown, however; although Wood's co-star in Across the Universe, Jim Sturgess, has been linked with the role many times over the last few months, open auditions were also held for the part earlier this year.

Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark will officially open in February next year, following previews running throughout January.

You just know there's going to be a song called "With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility."

Not really sure on a musical, but Alan Cumming as the Goblin? That just sounds awesome.
