Cemetery Junction‘s Felicity Jones has been added to the cast of Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and fan rumours seem to favour the idea she’ll be playing Felicia Hardy, the black-clad cat burglar Black Cat.

Speaking to RTL Netherlands, Jones said,  “I’ve never done a superhero movie. It’s very nice to you as an actor in several worlds to go and to experiment.”

With The Amazing Spider-Man 2 already having two villains (Jamie Foxx’s Electro and Paul Giamatti’s Rhino), and two love interests (Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacy and Shailene Woodley’s Mary-Jane Watson), it’s more likely that Jones will have a much smaller role and the fanboys will have to turn back to cosplayers for a chance to peer down Black Cat’s prominent cleavage.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is due 2 May 2014, while The Amazing Spider-Man is out now. Order it now on DVD for £10 and Blu-ray for £14.99 from Thwip thwip.
