Is ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Star Felicity Jones Playing Black Cat After All?
It’s long been rumored that actress Felicity Jones might be playing Felicia Hardy (aka Black Cat) in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2,’ but now the actress might have put an end to the speculation — sort of.
We’ve gotten a glimpse at Paul Giamatti as the Rhino, Jamie Foxx as Electro, Emma Stone reprising her role as Gwen Stacy, and even newcomer Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, but what about Felicity Jones? Like Woodley, Jones is another female newcomer to the Spidey franchise, but we haven’t heard much about who she’ll be playing.
In a recent interview with Bleeding Cool about her upcoming film ‘Breathe In,’ Jones was asked if she was excited for people to see her as Black Cat (objection! Leading the witness!), and her response was pretty uncomfortable — though it might suggest the interviewer is right:
“Um, well, uh, possibly. I don’t know. Yeah, I kind of—it’s um. Yeah, if that happens, that would be wonderful.”
Jones might very well be playing Hardy, but that doesn’t necessarily mean we’ll be seeing Black Cat on the big screen just yet, especially when ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ already boasts two big villains. However, the film might provide some setup for her character, allowing Black Cat to make her full-on debut in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 3.’
