Last week a rumor started floating around the interweb saying that Rachel McAdams would be playing Black Cat in Spider-Man 4, and that she had already met with the producers. Well according to McAdams herself that is indeed, just an internet rumor.
From Entertainment Weekly:
“That’s a total rumor, I have to say,” the actress, who will next be seen in the Dec. 25 action-adventure tentpole Sherlock Holmes, tells EW. “I was hanging out in Toronto the other day and someone came up to me and said, ‘I just heard you’re doing Spider-Man 4.‘ And I said, ‘Really? No one told me!’ It’s not true.” A rep for Sony Pictures concurs: “It’s an Internet rumor, as so many things are these days.”
It could be the case that McAdams is denying it as things haven’t been finalized yet, although I’ve got a feeling that it wasn’t true to begin with. Hopefully we’ll find out who will be in Spider-Man 4 in the near future, as we know casting is certainly under-way.
