We reported last week that Rachel McAdams was set to sharpen her claws in an anticipated superhero sequel, but it seems that's not the case. Entertainment Weekly recently spoke with McAdams who denied the rumors that she was trying out for Black Cat in Spider-Man 4.

"That's a total rumor, I have to say," McAdams said. "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."

The site also reported that a rep for Sony chalked the story up to an "Internet rumor" as well. Of course, that doesn't mean that the Black Cat character won't appear in Spider-Man 4, so be sure to stay tuned and we'll keep you up to date on any news from this seqeul.

Spider-Man 4 will begin principal photography in March 2010 and is set for a May 5, 2011 release.
