The Amazing Spider-Man 2 introduced some new characters that will likely appear in future Spider-Man films. The primary villain Electro is introduced and seemingly destroyed but not likely gone for good. We are introduced to the insanity of Harry Osborn as he becomes the Green Goblin. We see the development of a new villain the Rhino at the very end of the movie. All of this hints at the development of a team of super villains called the Sinister Six.
There is another character that had a very minor role that is worth mentioning, Harry Obsorn’s assistant Felicia. The character was only in about three scenes in the entire movie but that is more than enough to generate an introduction for something more. There is some serious speculation that Felicia is none other than Felicia Hardy.
What do we know about Felicia Hardy?
Felicia Hardy becomes a love interest of Peter Parker and is also the Black Cat. She might be considered the sophisticated Marvel version of DC Comics character Catwoman. The Black Cat is officially a villain but does come to the aid of Spider-Man at various times. Much like Catwoman comes to the aid of Batman at times. Felicia Hardy will become an ally to Spider-Man later on.
Could the assistant Felicia actually be the Black Cat?
There are some reasons to believe that this is possible. The first is that being connected to Harry Obsborn, Felicia does have access to some serious technology. Near the end of the movie, Harry Obsorn does seem to be in control of the corporation, Oscorp. This means that Felcia could have access to everything she needs to become the Black Cat.
There is a movement to build the Sinister Six. The question is whether or not the Black Cat could be a member of a new configuration of that group or will be a stand-alone character. There is little details about which villains will be in the Sinister grouping but it can be assumed that the Lizard, the Green Goblin and the Rhino may be part of the group. How the Black Cat would fit in is unknown.
Another piece to the puzzle is the fact that the end credits do not give a last name to the movie character Felicia. It could mean that the character has nothing to do with any future character development. The speculation about future appearances of Felicia Hardy and the Black Cat is exactly that, speculation. Fans will have to wait and see what develops with the potential of a Black Cat movie appearance. The Amazing Spider-Man 3 is slated for arrival at movie theaters in the U.S. in June 2016.
