Oh, the tangled webs we weave!
He's defeated Green Goblin and Doc Octopus, but Spider-Man's most persistent foe appears to be a U.S. District Court.
Julie Taymor's ongoing lawsuit against Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark is, well, ongoing!
You might remember when the original writer/creator was canned from the $75 mil production last year or when she filed suit claiming copyright infringement of original work soon thereafter.
The judge is considering arguments from both parties' attorneys, trying to decide whether or not to admit certain pieces of evidence — including outlines written by Taymor and videos of the production in its entirety.
Attorneys from Taymor's side are confident with their case, claiming:
"[We've] never seen a case where someone made a more blatant admission that they were copying an earlier work."
Something tells us their viewpoint isn't completely objective!!
If only the Tony's handed out awards specific to court-room drama, Turn Off the Dark would be a lock!!
