Here are a couple new bits of casting news for Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 4. Movieline is reporting that John Malkovich is in negotiations to play Vulture. The site also adds that, unlike previous rumors, Anne Hathaway is in talks to play Felicia Hardy, but, there’s a change from past reports. The character would differ from its comic origins:
“However, unlike in the comic books, this Felicia Hardy doesn’t transform into the Black Cat. Instead, Raimi’s Felicia will become a brand-new superpowered figure called the Vulturess”.
Spider-Man 4 is scheduled to hit theaters on May 6, 2011.
