Felicity Jones was not fortunate enough to explore Felicia Hardy’s alter ego, Black Cat, in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and she wants to reprise her role.
Felicity Jones, a British actress better known for playing Jane Hawking in The Theory of Everything and Jyn Erso in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, has spoken to Yahoo Movies UK, and during the interview, she expressed an interest in reprising her role of Felicia Hardy A.K.A the Black Cat.
When questioned about the role she portrayed in Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider–Man 2, Jones explained her reasons for taking on the role:
"“There was never anything, you know, written down that it would definitely happen. It was more just… I like playing characters where there’s a little bit extra to play with.”“I just loved the idea of that character.”"

The iteration of Felicia Hardy that appeared in the 2014 film had a special relationship with the Osborn family and during interviews, she stated her character was the “Goblin’s girlfriend,” which is kind of a misdirect and not explicitly the case. In the film, Felicia (Jones) was a former executive assistant to the late CEO and founder of Oscorp Industries, Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper), and when his son, Harry (Dane DeHaan), assumed the role of CEO of Oscorp, he made Felicia his assistant.
Inheriting the same disease as his father, Harry became desperate, as he was in search for a cure. Felicia overheard from a corrupt VP of Oscorp that the destroyed genetically engineered spiders had their venom extracted. A serum of the spider-venom was kept in the special projects division, intel that she informed Harry.
“I’d love to, yeah. I’d love to keep exploring her. She’s a great character,” Jones confirmed in response to a question on whether she would take on the part again.
The potential Spider-Man spin-off, Silver & Black, featuring Black Cat and Silver Sable was scrapped in favor of standalone movies, so if Jones were to portray the Black Cat in another film, it would likely be part of the continuity as part of Sony’s Universe of Marvel Characters (SUMC), Sony’s shared Spider-Man Universe that was kicked off by Tom Hardy’s Venom.
