Felicity Jones is still pretty tight-lipped on who exactly she’ll be playing in the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man 2; but today we get some news that she will in fact be in a costume. The theories are that she’ll be either Black Cat or Menace, with me leaning toward the latter.
Jones talks about her involvement with Peter Parker’s (Andrew Garfield) best friend, Harry Osbourne (Dane DeHaan), as well as her hands on the costuming choices for her mysterious character.
Jones talks about her being on the “dark side” with Harry.
[box_light]”It’s all quite shrouded in secrecy, but I’m the Goblin’s girlfriend – I’m in a relationship with him, and his accomplice. I’m on the dark side.” [/box_light]
She went on to talk about her collaboration on the costume.
[box_light]”Oh, yeah, totally! Absolutely! It’s a medium that’s very collaborative. Actors and directors work on things together. That’s how I like to work, anyway. I don’t want to be told what to do. I want to share it with someone and work it out together. You know that person better than anyone. That’s my job.”[/box_light]
We’ll see who she turns out to be when the film is released in May. The reason why I think it’s Menace instead of Black Cat, is because Felicia Hardy is much more of an anti-hero than an all-out villain. And given that Marc Webb wants to pack as much of the Rogue’s Gallery in the film as possible, why not add another one?
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Dane DeHaan, Jamie Foxx, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, and Sally Field. The Marc Webb directed sequel swings into theaters on May 2, 2014.
