Following her departure from the show in March 2011, Julie Taymor is claiming that she never received proper compensation for her work.

"As the lawsuit filed today makes clear, the defendants have violated Ms. Taymor's creative rights as an author of 'Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.' Moreover, the producers have failed to compensate Ms. Taymor for their continued use of her work to date," Taymor's lawyer, Charles Spada, said in a statement.
