Way back in January it was reported that actress Felicity Jones was in talks to join The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in an undisclosed role. Well, the cat might be out of the bag. Bleeding Cool stumbled upon an interview with the actress in which she seemingly confirms that she will be playing Felicia Hardy, aka Black Cat, in the upcoming film.
When asked if she was looking forward to everyone seeing her as Black Cat in the film, Jones replied: “Uhm, Well…..possibly, I don’t know. Yeah, If that happens that would be wonderful.”
Though not a definitive “Yes,” Jones’ answer to the question would lead one to believe that she will play Felicia Hardy in the film and could return as Black Cat in future movies (which were dated for a 2016 and 2018 release yesterday). Check out the full interview below and decide for yourself. Do you think Jones is playing the Spider-Man villain/love interest in the movie?
In the 2014 sequel, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) finds life is busy between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a newvillain, Electro, emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
Also starring Shailene Woodley, Colm Feore, Sally Field and Chris Cooper, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters on May 2, 2014.
