Even though we are rather fond of Andrew Garfield as Spider Man, we are STILL frustrated that Sam Raimi‘s fourth Spider-Man film with Tobey Maguire couldn’t get made because of stupid studio bullshiz…
Because according to Mr. Raimi, Anne Hathaway was thisclose to starring in his next Spider-Man as cat burglar-turned crime fighter
Selena Kyle Felicia Hardy, codename Black Cat!!
And after seeing her portray Cat Woman, it’s obvious that she would have DOMINATED the role!
“I didn’t get to see Batman yet, because I’ve been working nonstop… but I hear she’s great in it. I’m not surprised, because I loved what she was doing with the auditions for Spider-Man 4.”
UGH LAME SAUCE! Why oh why couldn’t this movie have happened?! Oh wait, we know why, cause Sam recently divulged the dirty deets!
“It was simply that we had a deadline and I couldn’t get the story to work on a level that I wanted it to work. I was very unhappy with Spider-Man 3, and I wanted to make Spider-Man 4 to end on a very high note, the best Spider-Man of them all. But I couldn’t get the script together in time, due to my own failings, and I said to Sony, ‘I don’t want to make a movie that is less than great, so I think we shouldn’t make this picture. Go ahead with your reboot, which you’ve been planning anyway.'”
LOLz! Even though he mostly takes the blame, Sam still sounds a tad sour about how everything went down!
Who knows, perhaps Anne can STILL portray Black Cat in a future Amazing Spiderman flick?!
Nah, probably not. She’s got an Oscar now!
