It was first rumoured months ago that Felicity Jones was in talks to join Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in an unspecified role. Well, BleedingCool has come across an interview with the actress where she may have just let slip what role she’ll be taking on.
Jones was asked whether she’s looking forward to playing Black Cat in Webb’s sequel, to which she replied, “Uhm, well… possibly. I don’t know. Yeah, if that happens that would be wonderful.”
Whilst by no means definite, I’d say that’s a good indication that Jones will be playing the role of Felicia Hardy, who has the alter-ego of Black Cat. Black Cat is a world class cat-burglar, who just so happens to have her flirtations with Spider-Man. Basically, she’s Marvel’s version of Catwoman.
The Spidey sequel will see Peter Parker looking to juggle his high school graduation, his affection for Gwen Stacy and his promise to her father that he will stay away from her, and the small matter of a couple of supervillains – namely Electro and Rhino.
Andrew Garfield returns as Pater Parker/Spider-Man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Sally Field as Aunt May and Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben. Joining them is Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn, Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn, Jamie Foxx as Electro and Paul Giamatti as Rhino.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is released on 2nd May, 2014.
