Back in January, we reported that Felicity Jones had signed on for an unspecified role in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. While promoting her upcoming indie film Breathe In, the actress was asked if she was looking forward to fans seeing her as The Black Cat, a.k.a. Felicia Hardy. While she didn't give a definitive yes, her response seems to indicate that she is playing Felicia Hardy.
"Um well.....possibly, I don't know. Yeah, if that happens that would be wonderful."
We reported yesterday that Sony has given The Amazing Spider-Man 3 a 2016 release date, with The Amazing Spider-Man 4 following in 2018. It seems possible that they could be setting her up as Felicia Hardy in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, to use her as the villainous Black Cat in one of the upcoming sequels.
Felicia Hardy/Black Cat first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #194 in July 1979. Felicia is the daughter of a world-famous cat burglar, who trained herself to follow in her father's criminal footsteps.
