Looks like the reports about Spider-Man 4 having just one villain may not have been entirely accurate. According to Mania, casting for the film is now underway, and producers are looking to introduce at least two additional major characters: one male and one female. The female role is believed to be Felicia Hardy aka Black Cat aka Spider-man’s version of Catwoman (I know, I know… Black Cat actually came first). While this role may or may not be considered a “villain” per se, the male role is being described as such.
So who is under consideration to play these new roles? Well, right now there are two possibilities being talked about for the role of Felicia Hardy. The first, and most well-known, is Rachel McAdams. While she hasn’t done much in the way of action before, it appears that she has probably been involved in more than a few stunts for Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes. The other actress being rumoured is Romola Garai (Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights, Atonement). While this is all far from being confirmed, it does sound like we can count on at least two villains for the flick. What do you think about adding Black Cat to the mix? Is Rachel McAdams a good choice for Felicia Hardy?
