Additionally, producers have finalized the core cast of the show: Tony nominee Jennifer Damiano (Next to Normal) will play Mary Jane Watson, while Patrick Page has officially been confirmed as Norman Osborn/The Green Goblin. (Evan Rachel Wood and Alan Cumming were previously attached to the roles.) The pair join the previously cast Reeve Carney, who’ll play Spider-Man.
