Rachel McAdams Calls Bullshit on Black Cat in Spidey 4 Rumor

See, this is why we don’t “break” movie news on the site — it sucks when you’re wrong and your fellow movie bloggers come down on you like hungry little vultures looking for a piece of meat. That, and no one ever sends me anything worth breaking. Ahem. Anyways, remember that news that had Rachel McAdams meeting with the Spidey producers for the role of the Black Cat in “Spider-Man 4″? Apparently all untrue.

McAdams tells EW:

“That’s a total rumor, I have to say. 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.”

EW then reached out to Sony, who confirms the totally made up Internet rumor.

Oh well. McAdams as the Black Cat would have been an odd choice anyway (like I said, she just doesn’t seem the “type” for such a role), but it would have been quite the visual treat. It’s like Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow in “Iron Man 2″. Totally “out there” casting, to be sure, but man, it’s going to look good onscreen.

Spiderman, drawn by the Black Cat's generous, er, asset, refuses to give up the chase.
