In the wake of Julie Taymor’s lawsuit against the producers of Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark — alleging her creative rights were violated when she was outsted from the show, and that she has not been compensated for her work — lead producers Michael Cohl and Jeremiah J. Harris have released the following statement:

Since Ms. Taymor’s departure in March, we have repeatedly tried to resolve these issues. The production has indeed compensated Ms. Taymor for her contribution as a co-book writer. Fortunately the court system will provide, once and for all, an opportunity to resolve this dispute. We look forward to a resolution in which everyone is properly compensated for their contribution to Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark.
