New Spider-Man Costume Teased as Black Cat Rumors Swirl

Felicity Jones

They say the eyes are the window to the soul, so what does a video of larger Spider-Man eyes mean? Well, a change in costume for one thing. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb tweeted a video showing a quick frame or two of the Web-Head’s new headgear. The brief glimpse shows larger, silvery eyeholes for Spidey (you can see an image below, even if the video is virtually impossible to find on the website).

Meanwhile, Felicity Jones (Chalet Girl, Breathe In) told RTL Netherlands she has officially joined the cast of the Columbia Pictures sequel, although she didn’t specify in which role. “I’ve never done a superhero movie,” she said. “It’s very nice to you as an actor in several worlds to go and to experiment.”

Rumors have already begun to swirl that Jones might play Felicia Hardy, better known as Black Cat. Outwardly lighthearted and flirty, the cat burglar wound up becoming a love interest for Spider-Man.

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 Amazing Spider-Man 2, which opens May 4, 2014, also stars Shailene Woodley, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field and Martin Sheen.

    Elektro, Rhino, Mary Jane, Harry Osborn (and probably Norman), and Black Cat.  Because introducing that many new characters at once always works so well in superhero films!

    There is no way a single film will feature Gwen Stacy, Mary Jane and Black Cat all together! Unless Felicia is not interested in Peter/Spider-Man romantically, leaving Gwen and MJ to fight it out.

    Please no Black Cat…

    Actually, now that I think of it, wouldn’t it be cooler if Felicity Jones was playing the drug dealing White Rabbit? She could be the dealer supplying drugs to Harry Osborn, if they are exploring that story line.

    Bigger eyes will be a good thing. It sounds odd to say, but I’ve actually been pretty badly bugged by what I’ve seen as fairly undersized eyes on the movie Spidey costumes up until now. Like me some big ol’ Bagley-style eyes on my Spidey.

    They don’t have to be the villains he fights, they could just be set ups for later movies. The recent Batman movies had a lot of familiar characters/villains and they worked out just fine.

  • Ron Mexico

    Black Cat addition would make me want to see the movie!

  • Juan

    Well, if you fail once, never try again they say.

  • CudaBiro

    Considering how only one of those characters is a primary antagonist and the rest are just supporting players, I’m failing to see the issue.

    I mean it’s not like the first film didn’t introduce May, Ben, Gwen, Lizard, Capt. Stacy and Flash.

     the Amazing Spider-Man video game had a very strict code on what they could do with their story because they could not infringe on plans for upcoming movies. So maybe that was a prequel to her getting some sort of powers since she was obsessed with the idea of how spidey got his powers in the video game, thought the videogame version was more vicious than her traditional or ultimate spider-man character

    Its been speculated that Mary Jane only has a small role in this movie, some movie sites believed this because of what they saw as a very crowded schedule for the acctress that plays her.

    Also if they electro and Rhino are in this movie, I hope the movie introduces the idea of spidey having to fight superhuman beings as routine as the comics.  If thats the case the movie wouldn’t necessarily be overcrowded.

    How many missteps and falls did you endure to learn how to walk?
    Would you be walking now if you stopped at the first dozen failures? No!
