Is Felicity Jones playing Black Cat in The Amazing Spider-Man 2?

06.18.2013

I wouldn't call this a confirmation, but rather overwhelming evidence. During an interview promoting her new indie pic BREATHE IN, actress Felicity Jones was blindsided with a pointed question about her role in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, which basically asked her how she felt about "finally" getting to play The Black Cat/aka Felicia Hardy. Jones stumbled her way through an answer she was obviously not prepared to give, leaving little doubt that she is donning the leather to portray the famed character.

Besides one other actor, B.J. Novak, Jones' part is the only other one not specified thus far. Whether she's playing The Black Cat or someone else, it's obvious that it's something more than a bystander. Personally, I always saw Black Cat as Marvel's Catwoman (the similarities are rather uncanny), but apparently she was created (edit: as cat-suited burglar) almost a decade before DC's cat-burglar donned the similar uniform. In terms of popularity, however, Catwoman has the edge. Perhaps the Spidey sequel can turn that around, although I don't know how they're going to fit her in with the likes of Electro, The Rhino, Green Goblin, Vulture, Mary-Jane, and Harry Osborn. Talk about a stacked movie.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti, Chris Cooper, Colm Feore, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Felicity Jones, B.J. Novak, and Shailene Woodley starts spinning its massive web on May 2, 2014.

Interesting fact: Were Sam Raimi to do Spider-man 4, he was going to have John Malcovich play Vulture and Anne Hatheway play the Black cat.

Let's wait and see, folks, shall we?

At least the Brits tend to have more classical drama so she'll likely have some acting chops. As for her more, ahem, physical attributes, that's why God invented the push-up bra.

SPECUALTIONS

As far as I know the only confirmed villains for ASM2 are Electro and Rhino. My bet is they're setting the other characters up for the sequels (including The Green Goblin). I DO hope they explain the costume change, though, and that they won't spoil the whole movie in the upcoming trailer (like they did the first one).

This isn't a spider-man movie anymore, it's a villain movie at this point. It's like the anti-avengers, 1 hero and a bunch of bad guys. I understand they might be trying to do sinister 6 which could be cool, but at the same time it's hard to see how they juggle all these characters and not have it be more about the villains than spider-man.

You know, at this point - f*ck it - lets just watch it and see what happens :o)

I will say one positive thing about this movie (haven't said anything to date) .... the fact that Sony have confirmed 3 and 4 gives me hope that this will be done right and some of these characters will merely be introduced in this movie - I'm okay with that.

This is awesome

As fast as these franchises get rebooted they need to fit as much villains in as they can otherwise we'd never seen some of these characters.

Too much.

This was getting close to SM3 territory when Rhino was announced, now it is just spilling over into Xmen 3 territory. I mean come on, there is no way they can kill Gwen, introduce and make us care about MJ, introduce Electro, Rhino, Osbourne, and now Black Cat/Felicia.

You really mean when it started getting muddled with X-Men 2 don't you? Horrible film, though what it sounds like Sony is planning to do here is slightly introduce people for the next 3 films. I am for it if done right.

Don't think so...

I imagine she's got a smaller role (i.e. Betty Brant, perhaps) and she's just not familiar with the Spider-Man lore. So with a curveball (kinda douchey) question like that, she tries to dodge it as best she can. Unfortunately, not knowing how her minor character exists in the mythology, she stumbled and has now opened the floodgates of speculation.

"The Black Cat is sometimes mistakenly considered an homage to DC's Catwoman,[7] yet Felicia Hardy's signature low-cut black costume, cat burglar profession, and steady relationship to Spider-Man predate Selina Kyle's similar depiction in comics by almost a decade.

I'm hoping that they won't all be main villains that are trying to get 30 minutes of screen time, or more, & are instead minor rolls that are setting up future installments for the likes of the Sinister 6.

And people thought Spider-Man 3 was too crowded. I really wish they took the Spider-Man 3 storyline and made that into two films instead of just cramming everything into one film.

No people say spider-man3 was a poor movie not overcrowded.
How can u blame the amount of villains in a movie for how bad it is?
The first 2 xmen movies are good with a few villains the third sucked, then first class was good again. The dark knight trilogy had plenty of villains but you dont say they sucked for it.

Spider-man 3 along with 1&2 are just ot good films, get over it.

Felicity as Felicia - a case of an almost-Danza! She's gorgeous, but it really does seem like there are too many characters in this thing as is. The way she answered the question reminded me a little of when Michael B. Jordan was asked about playing the Human Torch - let the cat outta the bag!
