Anne Hathaway Rumored to be Approached For a Part in Spider-Man 4

anne-hathawayI don’t know if Felicia Hardy is going to be a villain in Spider-Man 4, but the rumors for a female part are so ubiqitous, Rachel McAdams and Julia Stiles having been rumored in as many days, that there must be some large role that necessitates the inclusion of a well-known actress. The rumors give off a lot of heat, but so far there has been no real light shed on the part. Now Deadline Hollywood is reporting that producers have approached Ann Hathaway for a starring role in the film. Since Kirsten Dunst is returning as Mary Jane Watson, the Black Cat seems to be the most obvious fit, given the prevalence of rumors.

Anne Hathaway is a quality actor and would be a real boon to the film, having been nominated for a best acting Academy Award, even though a lot of her best parts involve trying to define the role of a woman in contemporary society. One of the few action films she has starred in was Get Smart, which I have not seen. However, this rumor could turn out to be premature: nothing official has been announced, and there is no word on whether she will eventually decide to join the cast. The way things are going, a new actress might be rumored tomorrow. But I think that Anne Hathaway would be the best fit so far.

    Um. Yeah i can’t see that. I can see her taking over the spot of Betty Brant though as the actress that played her has stated she didnt want to come back.

      And ugh she’s scary looking as a blonde. Look at her for “Alice” and she’s got white hair there, and thats pretty much what she’d look like as Black Cat.

    Okay, this news is a little bit easier to swallow. Nikki Finke over at DHD is pretty reliable with inside stuff, so I’m giving this news a little bit more credibility than all the other movie sites.

      Just cause it’s credible doesn’t make it good. LOL. She’s a good actress just to me not Fleicia Hardy. I can’t see her as a blonde or with white hair. Now my personal choices are Katee Sackhoff from “BSG” and Michelle Ryan from “Bionic Woman.” Kristen Bell could work too.

    I’m pretty sure that she also had blonde hair in Brokeback Mountain, and she did look pretty strange. But it’s not like they should discount her because of hair color. It’s not exactly a prerequisite for playing a character. Everybody complained about a blonde Bond, after all, and no one cared after seeing Casino Royale.

    • http://www.originalgeekspodcast.com/ Dedpool aka Jiinx

      Sure it’s a prerequisite. EVERY iteration of Felcica Hardy is blonde. From the time she debuted to the present. That’s like saying MJ didn’t have to be a Redhead. I agree with the bond thing but that’s a little different because there have been different actors playing a role that had no difinitive look other than a discription in a book. From there we started with Sean Connery and the rest is history. But with Felicia, it’s kind of written in stone. Blonde when not in suit, white wig when in costume. Change that and you ay as well just start making Peter blonde too.
