Anne Hathaway to Join Spider-Man 4?
Deadline Hollywood reports that Anne Hathaway might be entering the comic book realm with a turn in Spider-Man 4. Here is what they wrote:

Sony Pictures insists no decisions have been made, sources tell me that the producers have approached Anne Hathaway to star in the film.

Deadline Hollywood also wrote that:

All I know is that she's wanted for a starring role, and she won't replace Kirsten Dunst who's also cast in the Spidey fourquel.

Some other actresses who have been said to possibly be up for a role in this film are Julia Stiles and Rachel McAdams.

While nobody knows what role any of these possible actresses could be up for the one most talked about is that of The Black Cat.

Director Sam Raimi is slated to begin production on Spider-Man 4 in 2010, with the fourth Spidey installment tentatively scheduled to hit theaters in May 2011. The film will be released in IMAX.

Spider-man 4 is in development .

    Holy hell she DOES NOT resemble a Felicia Hardy, I will be royally PISSED if she gets hired to play Felicia. Royally.

    Of all names mentioned, McAdams was the best pick. But I definitely would not consider any actress who didn't resemble Ms. Hardy first, so those actresses would be out anyway. I thought Scarlett Johanssen and Elisha Cuthbert were good choices, but not Eliza Dushku. And Scarlett is now Black Widow from IM2 and Avengers, so my choice would be Cuthbert. But I'm just being biased. Show me a woman who resembles Felicia, I mean come on, have they even seen Cat in the books?

    what about Kristen Bell?

    Okay, I thought about it a bit. She could pull off the whole emotionally desturbed side of Felicia, but she needs to put on some muscle.

    Black Cat has an ego that goes with her skills... Hathaway is a great actress, but always comes of as akward and unfamiliar with herself in her roles... If you want that, you might as well get Kristen Stewart to satisfy the teen crowd and screw this whole movie. I just can't see her pulling it off. On the other hand, if she's in to replace Dunst, give her some red hari and I'm all for it.

    Interesting. I like Hathaway, but not for Black Cat. I would say Mila Kunis for Black Cat.

    Agreed, she could be really good with Cat character. We'll see what happens if all is true.

    She's a good actress. I could see her as Cat if that's the road they're going down.

    Eh I could see her as Black Cat, especially since they're mixing elements of both spider-man and ultimate spider-man. This one better not disappoint thought or its for sure the end of the franchise, 3 was so hyped up and Venom aka Topher Grace sucked...well like someone mentioned before too much cheesyness overall. I get Raimi wants to give it a comic-book feel but he really pushed it.

    i hope this rumor is true... i love anne hathaway! she's a fantastic and highly underrated actress!!! as good as she is, though - she can't save that franchise if they put out another crappy sequel like #3 was...

    Yeah, having a girl hero/villian is only to sell sex. Which I think is bullsh*t. Even if it's a "family film" that's what she would be there for, eye candy. Waste of screen time really. We watch Spidey for Spidey and the villians, nothing else.

    Hold on a sec. Marvel really? Don't you mean Disney? They will screw it up and by the way, the first two movies from the franchises you just named are among the best comic book films made.
    And yeah, rumors everyday, I'd like that Movieweb makes a section specially for all this uncofirmed stuff, and leave real news on another section, that way we could know what is what

    just like SPIDEY 3, seems that rami doesn't know what TONE to keep for this film too.

    It will be all over the place; i'm expecting more musical dance numbers, song interludes, mixed storylines, underdeveloped characters and cheesy dialouge. Oh and of course peter crying like a little bitch, again!
    This series will be campy-kiddie-crap till the rights come back to marvel after the sony 5 picture deal is over! Till then i couldn't care 2 sh*ts about a spidey movie!

    Last Son Of Krypton--speaking of topher grace as venom, i wonder how his audition went to the point that that raimi actually thought he did a good enough job to play venom,i mean how much more horrible did the competition do for of all people topher to get the role, just imagine it for a second... ... ... now cringe in disgust and yet laugh of how lame of an idea that was to begin with :]

    As long as Julia styles dosnt get the role I should be happy but Sam raimi did cast topher grace as Eddie Brock
