Sony is looking to making a Black Cat movie after rumors surfaced several months ago. So Spidey rival and sometimes love interest Felicia Hardy will be making her way to the big screen possibly in 2017. The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was recently pushed back to 2018 with a Sinister Six film coming in November of 2016. So Sony is looking to target 2017 with Black Cat and a Venom movie (tentatively called Venom/Carnage) for the year between the two other films.
With female superheroes being such a hot topic with fans clamouring for some to hit the silver screen, it’s a smart move on Sony’s part to take the plunge. We know of rumors from Marvel Studios of a Black Widow film in the works, and Jessica Jones coming to Netflix, so it’s not out of the realm of possibility to see Sony and even Fox focusing on female heroes for a change.
Felicia Hardy is the daughter of a world-renowned cat burglar. After suffering a traumatic event as a college freshman, she trained herself in various fighting styles and acrobatics and, after deciding to follow in her father’s footsteps, adopted her costumed identity as the Black Cat. She was ranked 27th in Comics Buyer’s Guide’s 100 Sexiest Women in Comics list.
The character makes her cinematic debut as Felicia, Harry Osborn’s assistant, in the 2014 film The Amazing Spider-Man 2, portrayed by actress Felicity Jones.
