Casting suggestions for Spider-Man 4's vinyl-suit-clad feline femme fatale, Black Cat, are being thrown around like confetti at the moment.
She's a shady character, hidden behind a gigantic shock of white-blonde hair, who arrives boasting an abandoned one-time romance with our web-slinging protagonist.
So basically, the contenders must be plausible as a former squeeze of the 34-year-old Mr Maguire, be able to carry off that wacky enormo-wig, and be a dab hand at rearranging criminal faces.
Naturally, we saw this challenge as a soft excuse to look at loads of hot pictur-...no, wait, to consider the relative merits of some likely leading ladies. In an not-at-all superficial way. At all.
Anyway, for your perusal, 18 stellar names we reckon could get the job done...
The Actor: Asia Argento
Purr: A proper tough cookie. Knows a thing or two about working with (indeed, living with) seasoned horror directors. Can probably run, jump and miaow better than a real cat.
Hiss: Looks too much like she might have superpowers for real; the Felicia Hardy bits could be unconvincing. Might look profoundly odd with a huge platinum weave.
Vinyl Score: Not exactly the longest leading lady out there, but a whip-like 6 out of 10 nontheless.
Cat In Hell’s Chance? Only 3 lives out of 9, sadly.
Next: Anne Hathaway
