Felicity Jones recently confirmed that she has joined the cast of Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2. In an interview with Dutch website RTL Netherlands she said, "I've never done a superhero movie. It's very nice to you as an actor in several worlds to go and to experiment."
There's no word on who she'll be playing in the film but there's a rumor floating around that she'll be taking on the role of Black Cat, which would be amazing! I've always wanted to see Black Cat on the big screen, and I think Jones is a great actress to take it on.
I'm not sure why they'd keep her role a secret though because they had no problem revealing that Jamie Foxx was playing Electro, and that Paul Giamatti was playing The Rhino. Makes me think she'll have a small role in this sequel, but will have a bigger role in the third film. I guess we'll just have to wait and see! For conversation sake, what do you think about the possibility of Jones playing Black Cat?
The film also stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, and Sally Field, and here's the official synopsis...
In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
The movie was written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Jeff Pinkner, with a previous draft by James Vanderbilt, and based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing.
