McAdams no Cat

11.17.2009

Last week there was a bit of buzz surrounding the possibility that Rachel McAdams would be playing Black Cat in Sam Raimi's next SPIDER-MAN venture. The character fits in with Raimi's universe, McAdams looks the part, it had all the makings of a good casting call. However…

"That's a total rumor, I have to say," said McAdams. "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."

Well it looks my Cast This poll from this week just got a lot more relevant! But actually, between this denial and the recent fact that Peter Parker may in fact have a baby now, I’m not sure that Black Cat really fits into what this movie is shaping up to be. That being said, McAdams might be playing coy on the behest of Raimi, and this is all some secret conspiracy to shock us with a trailer chock full of white-haired McAdams goodness.

But I doubt it.

What a relief. I've been re-reading a lot of early Black Cat appearances recently, and I don't see McAdams fitting those boots at all. Not saying she couldn't do it but they need to get an actress with a little more kink and edge.

Let's see: possibly Connors / Lizard transformation, Black Cat, an unnamed 2nd villain, the Mary Jane / Peter angle, as well as Pete doting on his aunt and kicking ass in the costume, as well as an unnamed red headed kid. Hope they have a tighter script this time

No McBlack Cat

I wouldn't of minded if this casting call would have been true but I've always seen Eliza Dushku as Black Cat.

I think she would have worked for it, if there was a different Mary Jane. Honestly, McAdams would be a better MJ. Honestly......maybe even a different Peter. She would work better with a different cast

Well the article did say that she was there favorite, but all that means is that they want her to do it, not that they auditioned or even talked to her about it yet. And the baby is most likely Doc Conners son and not spider-mans.

I thouhgt it would have been good casting, but I am not all that sad it's not happening.

I don't wanna see her waste her talents on another poorly handled Spider-man sequel.

Raimi, has already said, several times, that, unlike on the third outing, he shall have creative control ala the first two, so this is a good thing! And if you don't like them, then what's wrong with you?! :) (please take that last part as the joke it's meant to be)

No shit...

Maybe you stop reporting rumours that make absolutely no sense and just concentrate on facts when they are announced by the film makers. This is the internet, anyone can spread bullshit rumours and I'd have thought Joblo would have been able to smell which ones aren't right.
Yeah also stop jumping to conclusions, one report of child with redhair and you're already saying it like we're going to see a spiderman jr, no one knows shit yet! Wait for something worth reporting!!

Even though it was a rumor, everyone on the net had gotten ahold of it. Fans got slightly excited at the possibility of her playing Black Cat, but no one was holding it up as truth. Some people like reading about that stuff and some don't. It can be fun to speculate.

Dude, your name is beyond apt. You are "NO FUN" and a prick and a jackass. Let them report, and if you honestly think you can do better, than please do so.

Well, this kind of blows. I was really hoping to see her in that hot outfit. If they don't use Black Cat in the film, I won't be too disappointed. As for the business on the ginger kiddo, hopefully it is Conner's son. I'd also rather not talk about Batman until they make up their minds on it.

Nolan will recast....

...the joker. i feel he would. it'd be hard, but i think a good story can be written with the joker involved in some way. joseph gordan-levitt looks like ledger...but who knows. maybe he'd have penguin in there....but really, i'd prefer more Joker madness in the 3rd movie.
