Officially the role that Felicity Jones is playing in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is unknown, but many believe that she will be playing Felicia Hardy, aka the Black Cat. In a recent interview with Flicks in the City’s Jan Gilbert Jones was asked:
Are you looking forward to everyone seeing you as Black Cat?
Felicity’s bumbling answer, that is trying hard NOT to be an answer, is endearing in its simplicity. She wasn’t ready for that question, in that form, and you can see her stumble to get something out there while not confirming anything. I’m sure she’ll get better at it with practice. Although I have to say, this cat is out of the bag and won’t go back in.
Expect IMDB to update her role listing in a day or so.
