Looks Like Felicity Jones Will Play Felicia Hardy In The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has been shooting for a while now. We’ve seen a lot of great pictures of the cast out and about doing their thing. We’ve seen Andrew Garfield in his new Spidey suit, Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx as Max Dillon/Electro, and even Paul Giamatti in his pre-CGI Rhino rig. One person we haven’t seen (and kind of forgot about) was Felicia Hardy. The English actress is confirmed for the film, but we weren’t positive about who she was playing. Well we might have found that out today.
Since Jones was first announced for the film people have been saying she’s probably playing Felicia Hardy, better known as Black Cat. In a recent interview with Flicks and The City (via Bleeding Cool), it seems they tripped her up and got her to basically admit she’s going to at least be Hardy. You can see the video interview below which was about her new film Breath In. Around the :57 mark she gets asked about Spider-Man. She talks about being excited for the film, but it’s when she straight out gets asked about Black Cat that she slips up and is visible shaken by the question:
Um, well, uh, possibly. I don’t know. Yeah, I kind of—it’s um. Yeah, if that happens, that would be wonderful.
Now this can be taken a couple different ways. First, she’s just thrown by the question and since she can’t really talk about the role she just rolls with it. Second, she is playing Felicia Hardy but may not be the Black Cat until Spider-Man 3 or 4 (which recently had their dates set). The sequel seems to be packed with characters so we might just see Jones as Hardy this time with her taking up the femme fatale role later. What do you think? Is she Felicia Hardy? Do you think the Black Cat will pop up in The Amazing Spider-Man 2?
