Felicity Jones Possibly Lets Another THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Spoiler Slip

     July 17, 2013


Even though her character in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was supposed to remain mysterious (or at least unannounced until the studio deemed fit to reveal it), Felicity Jones seemingly confirmed an educated guess in an interview last month.  Now, it looks like she may have unintentionally given away something much larger, and it could provide more proof that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is headed towards building the Sinister Six.

Hit the jump for a possible spoiler regarding the upcoming sequel.  The film also stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaanShailene WoodleyPaul Giamatti, Chris Cooper, and Sally FieldThe Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2, 2014.

black-cat-spider-man-terry-dodsonIn an interview last month, Jones apparently confirmed that she would be playing the jewel thief Black Cat, and now a recent interview with View London [via Bleeding Cool] has brought even more revelations about the sequel.  Jones tells View London,

“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.”

I’m sure more than one publicist will tell Ms. Jones in the future, “if you have to start with ‘It’s all quite shrouded in secrecy,’ then you shouldn’t keep going.”  As for how this fits in with the plot, it does lend some more credence to her playing Black Cat.  However, there are some caveats.  First off, she doesn’t specify the Goblin she’s dating.  Presumably, it’s Harry Osborne (DeHaan) although I guess it’s possible (although unlikely) that she’s hooking up with the elder and first Green Goblin, Norman Osborne (Cooper).  It’s also possible that Norman Osborne doesn’t become Green Goblin in Webb’s movie.  If we’re going purely by the comics, then Harry’s girlfriend would be Lily Hollister, who injects the Goblin serum and becomes Menace (hat tip to ScreenCrave on that bit of info).

The larger point is that the emphasis on the villains continues to fuel speculation that Amazing Spider-Man 2 is about building the Sinister Six.  It makes sense when you consider how The Avengers is pushing other studios to put more characters into their superhero movies (see X-Men: Days of Future Past).  Sony doesn’t have a huge stable of heroes, but what they do have is Spidey’s enormous rogues gallery.  It also provides a neat kind of “anti-Avengers”, and it’s not necessarily a bad place to take the Amazing Spider-Man franchise assuming the Sinister Six is handled correctly (i.e. not throwing a bunch of one-dimensional supervillains against Spidey and calling it a day).

    Green Goblin was not a part of the Sinister Six. Hobgoblin was at one point but not classic Gobby.


      i think thats what will happen here. there was a description leaked a while ago that says that harry becomes the goblin by the end of this movie, and they just skip norman donning the suit

  • Benjamin

    As a child I went to one of her birthday parties dressed as Count Duckula. Best costume ever

  • Diego Fernando Salazar Proaño

    If they start building towards a confrontation between Spidey and the Sinister Six like the one in Mark Millar’s Spider-Man, then we’ll be getting a huge, epic brawl (and yes, in that one, the classic Green Goblin was part of the Sinister Six) that actually would require Black Cat’s presence.

    I wonder if she’ll get in trouble over dumping this info. If at the beginning of the movie we see her with Harry it means we’ve had it spoiled that he becomes Gobby (even though we’ve already seen that in SM3). Webb spoils so much with his tweeted set photos though that I doubt this is a big deal. Film is shaping up to be a good one!

    I for one kind of hope they’re not building up a Sinister Six. Unless we have another Joss Whedon writing the script we’re going to see very little character development, a ton of cliche, and throwaway homages to the comic books. Spiderman 3 was awful because they tried to cram so much into one film- and because, well, Tobey Maguire, but you know what I’m getting at. I’m glad they cut MJ from this sequel because they’re already introducing a major supporting cast as it is, and there’s much more that needs to happen with Gwen before that kind of conflict enters the picture.

    The remaining fact is that Goblin never had a play in the Sinister Six. It was Doc Ock, Kraven the Hunter, Electro, Vulture, Mysterio and Sandman. It would be awfully difficult to include most of these figures without giving each one (or two) a full film to flesh out their characters. I doubt the plan goes this deep, but who knows?

    Let’s hope for the best!

    If the Sinister Six involved Green Goblin, Rhino, and Electro, and potentially brought back the Lizard (since he is locked up in a prison that Goblin has access to anyways), who do you guys think the other two would be? Probably not Doc Ock or Sandman, as they’ve already been used in the previous franchise. Mayyyybe Mysterio and Kraven the Hunter? Or the Vulture?

    • Dan

      One of them will definitely be Vulture because Colm Feore is listed as Adrian Toomes.

  • eternalozzie

    I doubt Harry is going to be The Goblin … I doubt the cast knows the details of upcoming movies … Dane DeHaan can play full blown crazy really well though.

  • name

    judging by the way she talks about the character, she doesn’t know much of anything about the spider-man lore, which isn’t exactly a good thing since actors are suppose to do their research about their character before shooting

  • tertiaryintervention

    This movie will suck as bad as the last one.

    • DoctorPotterHolmes007

      The last one was good, it was a DIFFERENT TAKE/APPROACH to it, the movie did well, which is why they are making another one, majority rules! But of course I can’t change opinion, but REALLY? It did NOT suck! =D

      • tertiaryintervention

        It was not a different approach. They ruined the whole reason spiderman acted as he did. They even omitted the “with great power…” line. You must be 12 or something.

      • DoctorPotterHolmes007

        32 actually, you must be 2.

      • DoctorPotterHolmes007

        Some people just like to argue, shutup.

      • DoctorPotterHolmes007

        Have you actually read the comics? These films are not the BEST films, but they are not bad so calm down and shut up.

      • tertiaryintervention

        Oh my, look baby boy time for your nap.

      • DoctorPotterHolmes007

        Don’t be mean, can we just forget about it and be nice?

    • DoctorPotterHolmes007

      Just shut up you are an idiot with no life, after seeing you comments before you need to grow up and open your eyes.

      • tertiaryintervention

        Cry more little baby.

      • DoctorPotterHolmes007

        Hey, look I am sorry, just stop argueing so we can both be nice okay?
