Excuse us for a second, while we take a deep breath before we recap the Julie Taymor/Spider-Man lawsuit saga…….
Back in November, Julie Taymor filed a lawsuit against the Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark producers for violating her "creative rights as an author" of the play…and for failing to compensate her "for their continued use of her work to date."
Then, the producers released a statement in which they fired back at Julie, claiming they'd already been trying to resolve everything with her out of court.
THEN, Julie put collaborators Bono and The Edge on blast, asserting that they used her as a scapegoat to escape the bad press they were receiving for all of the show's injuries and delays.
