Felicity Jones Confirms Role In Marc Webb's THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

In an interview with Dutch website RTL Netherlands, Felicity Jones has confirmed that she will indeed star in the highly anticipated sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man. The actress was previously mentioned as joining the cast along with Paul Giamatti, but was not confirmed as being a part of the sequel in the press release which was recently sent out by Sony Pictures to mark the start of filming. "I've never done a superhero movie. It's very nice to you as an actor in several worlds to go and to experiment," she told the site, refusing to reveal exactly who she will be playing in the movie. While it's possible that she will only have a small role in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, this secrecy - and the fact that the British actress is incredibly beautiful - has led many fans to speculate that Jones will be playing the Black Cat. Stay tuned for further updates!






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.


STARRING:

Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man
Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy
Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson
Jamie Foxx as Max Dillon/Electro
Sally Fields as Aunt May

RELEASE DATE: May 2nd, 2014.

Well lets narrow it down. She's not Gwen, not MJ, too good an actress to just be Betty Brant(plus they haven't mentioned the Bugle or cast any of the other Bugle characters), Liz Allen, maybe? I don't see why they would bother. I'd always wanted to see Black Cat but assumed there was no chance after how 'Catwoman' looked in The Dark Knight Rises. Plus, there's clearly enough going on in this movie as it is. Maybe she'll just be Felicia Hardy until a later point.

okay

She's The Shocker

I don't see her as Felicia Hardy. Apparently, that rumour's main foundation is the fact that 'Felicity' and 'Felicia' sound similar. Including Black Cat seems like it'd be overkill.
SuperSomething616 - 2/14/2013, 3:38 AM
Felicia Hardy all the way...I'm calling it!!!
ZombieOverEasy - 2/14/2013, 3:54 AM
Article about "incredibly beautiful" woman is missing something.

Pretty sad that I have to Google search to see what she looks like. Disappointed in you Mr. Wilding.

@ACira
Read my mind.

Keen as [frick] for Black Cat and Spidey teaming up to take on Rhino and Electo.
Calling it. When you have the Transformers writers, shit is going to be HUGE.

DrHorrible - 2/14/2013, 4:31 AM
I'm calling it now, just like I did earlier: Felicity is Betty Brant and Colm Feore is JJJ.

We have yet to see anything in regards to the Daily Bugle, even though we know that it and its employees play a role in the movie.

Therefore, I'm just thinking, as of now, that she is Betty Brant and Colm Feore is JJJ. Why else haven't we heard anything about them being in the movie until now....?

I'm thinking they wanted it to be kept hidden until the last minute, but it leaked out. It doesn't do any good, seeing as we still don't know who they are, but still...

Being it Webb.

rebellion - 2/14/2013, 4:36 AM
so betty brant (she is betty, let's not be delusional) is ten times hotter than mj? screw you webb.
GetsugaTensho22 - 2/14/2013, 4:45 AM
Have you guys considered that maybe she's just a guest appearance as the waitress who serves Dane DeHaan some pie while he creeps everybody out by saying how good it is?

You guys ALWAYS do this, you keep casting the obvious or big-name characters even though they're very unlikely.
ToTheManInTheColdSweat - 2/14/2013, 4:52 AM
shit movie
IronDean2099 - 2/14/2013, 5:08 AM
I doubt they'd get such a hot talent to play Betty Brant, who, with all the other plot lines that will be going on in this movie, will probably only be in it for five minutes. And Colm Feore looks much more like Norman who is clearly going to be in it due to Harry being cast. There's been no mention of the Bugle.
CaptainAmerica31 - 2/14/2013, 5:10 AM
I'd rather her be Betty brant
PapaII - 2/14/2013, 5:24 AM
Webb trying his last chance on the slot machine.
kidbizkit - 2/14/2013, 5:26 AM
wikipedia indicates that she will be playing Felicia Hardy
Shamo - 2/14/2013, 5:50 AM
she's definitely Betty. otherwise Spidey would have a harem in this movie.
InfiniteMonkey - 2/14/2013, 6:04 AM
Meh, I stopped watching Spiderman at number 2.
What's it up to now? 15?
DrHorrible - 2/14/2013, 6:23 AM
@kidbizkit Because we all know Wikipedia is a reliable source...

Funsize - 2/14/2013, 6:27 AM
Maybe this movie will end up being as great as Spiderman 2 but I highly doubt it.
DrHorrible - 2/14/2013, 6:41 AM
@SpidaTrav Why do you type like William Shatner speaks? XD
DrHorrible - 2/14/2013, 7:01 AM
@SpidaTrav



Good answer.
Sanderman - 2/14/2013, 7:03 AM
She's playing Scientist #4
njferns - 2/14/2013, 7:05 AM
Oh God, Oh God, Oh God, Oh God, Oh God!!! PLEASE be Black Cat! Most probably she'll be Felicia Hardy in this movie & become BC in TASM3...
yingyangpalms - 2/14/2013, 7:08 AM
Shes not quite beautiful as you say but more like a wallflower.
But beauty is not the issue. Her comedic skills are the issue. With Jamie Foxx and Giamatti in the film bringing their comedy skills on board she needs to be able to fit into Webb's Spider-Man 2 comedy.

Hopefully the rumor that Mike Myers will be in the film are true. And Chris Rock as Jonah Jameson fits into Webbs comedy very well.
OtakuPapi - 2/14/2013, 7:09 AM
Are you people ready to say Amazing 2 is shaping up very beautifully?
DrHorrible - 2/14/2013, 7:14 AM
@yingyangpalms

Pheezmatic - 2/14/2013, 7:16 AM
Sinister Six!!!! Electro, Rhino, Venom, Balck Cat, Goblin, and ???? !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They pull it off right..this movie will be so much fun
DanteSparda - 2/14/2013, 7:17 AM
Felicity = Felicia
eviltattooedguy - 2/14/2013, 7:21 AM
Jamie fox is an ass wipe!! Im not gonna see his because he is in it. And seriously, electro??? Who the hell is responsible for that casting?
yingyangpalms - 2/14/2013, 7:23 AM
@DrHorrible Oh no. I think its a great thing that Webb sees comedians as dark and villainous. Just look at how great Devito was as the Penguin. Or Jim Carrey as the Riddler.
And if you look at the 60's Batman series we had some remarkable comedic performances from actors playing villains.
Comedians should always play the villain. It keeps the film light and less tense. And they deliver one liners very well.
FirstAvenger - 2/14/2013, 7:23 AM
She's cute, that's all I care about.
IIIAdamantiumIII - 2/14/2013, 7:26 AM
Black Cat FOR SURE!!!!!! look how beautiful this girl is
ianb - 2/14/2013, 7:32 AM
I bet Webb is pulling a fast one on us...Felicity is really Mary Jane! with Shailene as Black Cat! Hahaha
DrHorrible - 2/14/2013, 7:35 AM
@yingyangpalms Dude, I know EXACTLY what you're doing. I do it all the time with people. Don't try to play coy and be a snarky douche about it.

At least when I'm sarcastic, I let people know, instead of trying to mask it like you are.
NovaCorpsFan - 2/14/2013, 7:46 AM
Black Cat it is then, they'd reveal if she was playing Betty Brant, it's a useless role anyway.
DrHorrible - 2/14/2013, 7:56 AM
@Ashleytdkr You do know that Wikipedia can be edited by ANYONE and, therefore, is NOT a reliable source, right?

Right?...
dezdigi - 2/14/2013, 7:57 AM
Hot.
IronDean2099 - 2/14/2013, 8:01 AM
And for the record and whoever said it, the only man who can play J. Jonah Jameson is Billy Bob Thornton.
If he doesn't at least get offered that part, the world is past the point of no return.
