If you thought that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was suffering from a small amount of villainous bloat already from the Vulture rumor, well…you ain’t heard nothing yet. Even though the Vulture rumor has yet to be confirmed or denied, we may have caught wind about whether or not actress Felicity Jones will be playing the Black Cat after all.
The rumors that we would catch at least a glimpse of Felicia Hardy, better known as the Black Cat, have been floating around on the internet since the start of the year. Nobody has been able to get a definite answer out of Felicity Jones about the topic until recently. This is what she said on the project:
Um, well, uh, possibly. I don’t know. Yeah, I kind of—it’s um. Yeah, if that happens, that would be wonderful.
Okay, that may not be an exact yes or no answer to the question the interviewer presented, but it’s better than nothing. From the way that she got immediately tongue-tied on the subject, that could hint at her involvement. At the same time we could be reading into it just a little too much.
Do we really need Black Cat in The Amazing Spider-Man 2? If it were up to me, I’d keep her out of the mix. Right now Peter Parker has enough to worry about. We’ve got Gwen Stacy and Mary Jane Watson both in his life. There’s too many women in his life. I think we can wait for one of them to drop off before we introduce Black Cat into the complicated relationship mix.
