She's a comic book cat burglar in a skin tight black cat suit. She straddles a fine, dark line between heroism and self-serving villainy. She has an on-again, off-again sexually-charged relationship with a costumed hero, that often gets in the way of his crimefighting.

Sound familiar? It will be interesting to see how director Sam Raimi plans on making Marvel's Black Cat stand-out from DC's Catwoman, if the rumors on Comics2Film are to be believed. Seems actress Rachel McAdams has had some closed-door meetings with Spider-Man 4 producers for the role of Felicia Hardy aka The Black Cat. Presumably, the character would provide a new love triangle for Peter Parker, with Black Cat's intense attraction to Spider-Man complicating things between Peter and Mary Jane.

There's been some scuttlebutt on the net that Spider-Man 4 would feature The Lizard as the primary villain. Comics2Film casts some doubt on that, by stating that the production is in the casting stages for the lead villain role. This would seem to discount The Lizard, whose alter-ego Dr. Curt Connors (played by Dylan Baker) has already appeared in the previous Spider-Man films as Peter Parker's college professor.
