The upcoming sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man already has enough villains to fill a normal movie’s runtime, but there are rumors that Felicity Jones has been signed to play another thorn in Spidey’s side, albeit a little less vindictive than the Rhino and Elektro.
It hasn’t been confirmed who Jones will be playing, but fans are speculating that she’s going to play the part of Spidey’s sometimes-ally/sometimes-enemy Black Cat. After all, there’s not a lot of female villains exclusive to Spider-Man (especially since majority of the ones he encountered are villains from franchises on Fox and Marvel’s side)
Additionally, a recent interview by Flicks and The City caught Jones off-guard, resulting in a statement that lends a little bit of credibility to the Black Cat rumors:
“Um, well, uh, possibly,” said Jones, when asked if she’s excited to play the Black Cat. “I don’t know. Yeah, I kind of – it’s um… Yeah, if that happens, that would be wonderful.”
Directed by Marc Webb and co-starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Jamie Foxx, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will open in the UK on 18 April 2014.
