Mania.com is reporting that casting has already begun for Spider-Man 4 and that one of the top contenders to play Black Cat is Rachel McAdams! Here’s the scoop from Mania:
We can exclusively reveal that actress Rachel McAdams has met with the producers of the film for a major role. McAdams (of ‘Wedding Crashers’ and ‘Sherlock Holmes’ fame) is said to be a top contender for the role of Felicia Hardy, known to comic fans as The Black Cat.
Hey You Guys has a source close to the project that confirms McAdams is being considered, but that there are still other actresses in serious contention. Their source also leaked a little of the plot for Spider-Man 4, saying this about Black Cat:
We were also given a rough outline of the character’s story arc. Apparently she is the daughter of the new editor of The Daily Bugle, a man who is also referred to as ‘a viper’ (more on this in a second). She falls in love with Peter Parker, and uncovers his true identity. Her father then dies, and Hardy becomes a threat to Peter Parker (presumably as The Black Cat).
