Felicity Jones officially joins The Amazing Spider-man 2, but which character will she play?

Feb. 14, 2013by:

We heard rumors that Felicity Jones was joining THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 back when it was announced that Paul Giamatti was cast as Rhino. Since then, we have had rumors that Dane DeHaan was not only playing Harry Osborn but also could potentially become Venom in the film. That would bring the villain tally to three. Would anyone be joining Andrew Garfield as Spider-man to battle for the hero side?

Comic Book Movie theorizes that Jones may actually be playing Black Cat in the movie who skirts the line of hero and villain in the same way as DC's Catwoman. In fact, Jones bears a similar appearance to Anne Hathaway that it does not seem like much of a stretch to think the Sony crew is pushing Marc Webb to incorporate a similar character to this franchise. Without full access to the Marvel canon, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 is going to go ahead and try to show us every weapon in it's arsenal, which could be the kiss of death for the series. No superhero movie that was not a team-oriented approach, has succeeded with multiple heroes and villains packed into a single film.

Plot: In THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), 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 new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.

I am fine with Felicity Jones joining the cast in what could amount to nothing more than a cameo for the possible third movie. But, as long as they introduce her without forcing her in, this should be an interesting sequel.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 opens on May 2, 2014.

I'm betting she'll be Betty Brant

This film already has a lot of new major characters being included, we don't need someone like Black Cat in the picture when we have both Gwen and Mary Jane.

I bet Paul Giamatti is playing JJJ.

I don't believe he's playing The Rhino.

I might be in the minority on this site but I liked the last Spider-Man, and I've come to accept that Marvel won't be making these movies, which come to think of it is maybe a good thing, if Marvel owned X-Men and Spider-Man movie rights do you really think we would be seeing the movies we are now? If Marvel was only going to make 3 films a year (1 more than they do now) do you really think Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man, or Doctor Strange movies would be making the cut? I love how

I love how Marve/Disneyl is stretching the boundaries of characters in these type of movies.


Anyways it's pretty safe bet the only villain who will get any major screen time will be Jamie Foxx, because it's well Jamie Foxx, anything else will be small side stories setting up future plots.

Multiple heroes/villians

Batman Returns, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises all succeeded with multiple villians. Rises had multiple heroes if you include Blake and Catwoman. Iron Man 2 had its flaws but sporting two villians and two heroes wasn't one of them. It can be done. It's just very difficult. Not that I'm defending TAS2. The first was mediocre.

All of those films you mentioned had a lot more and better talent than Amazing Spider Man.

This isn't news this is all just speculation. Nowhere in this "story" does it say specifically who Felicity Jones is playing. I get the need to pump rumors in on a slow news day but c'mon guys!

Betty B. or Black Cat

Fell in love with her in Hysteria- couldn't believe the guy dumped her for Maggie Gyllenthal.
