Wood confirms Spider-Man musical role
Actress Evan Rachel Wood has signed to star as Mary Jane Watson in the new Spider-Man stage musical.
Two months after the show's director Julie Taymor denied Wood would play the web-slinging superhero's love interest, the actress has confirmed to Moviefone.com she's preparing to make her Broadway debut in the show, which opens in New York next February (10).
She has been forced to pull out of plans to star in movie Sucker Punch to take on the stage project.
The other lead roles, including Peter Parker/Spider-Man, have yet to be cast.
