Black Cat (Felicia Hardy) is a character appearing in comic books published by Marvel Comics. Throughout her history, Black Cat has sometimes been an enemy, love interest, and ally of the superhero Spider-Man.

Felicia Hardy is the daughter of Walter Hardy, a world-renowned cat burglar. After suffering from a traumatic assault by an ex-boyfriend as a college freshman, she trained herself in various fighting styles and acrobatics and, after deciding to follow in her father’s footsteps, adopted the costumed identity of the Black Cat. She has the subconscious ability to affect probability fields, producing “bad luck” for her enemies. The character was originally depicted as a supervillain and adversary of Spider-Man, but over time the two fell in love, which motivated her into becoming both an antiheroine, and his partner. However, their relationship grew complicated after it became apparent that Black Cat was only attracted to the alter ego of Spider-Man and had little interest in the hero’s civilian life as Peter Parker. After their break-up, Black Cat maintained her role as one of Spider-Man’s most trusted allies and for years the pair shared an on-again, off-again romance.

Being a part of his supporting cast and one of his principal love interests, Black Cat has been featured in many media adaptations related to Spider-Man, including animated series and video games. Felicity Jones played Felicia Hardy in the 2014 film The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Felicia Hardy appears in the 2014 live-action film The Amazing Spider-Man 2, portrayed by Felicity Jones. This version works for Oscorp and has a “special relationship” with the Osborns. After taking control of the company, Harry Osborn promotes Hardy over members of Norman Osborn’s former inner circle. She was intended to become the Black Cat in future films in the series before it was cancelled.

In March 2017, it was officially reported that Sony Pictures was developing a Black Cat and Silver Sable-centered film with writer Christopher Yost, a project previously revealed following the Sony Pictures hack in 2014, with Jones intended to reprise her role as Hardy from The Amazing Spider-Man 2. It was intended to be a part of a shared universe called Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, which is centered on characters from the Spider-Man mythology and began with the live-action film Venom in 2018. The films were to be more adult-oriented and despite taking place in the “same reality” as the Marvel Cinematic Universe, would not crossover with each other. In May 2017, it was announced that Gina Prince-Bythewood would direct the film, now titled Silver & Black. Production was supposed to begin in March 2018, but has since been delayed “indefinitely”. Prince-Bythewood said the cause of the delay was script issues. While the film was initially scheduled to be released on February 8, 2019, Sony removed the release date from their schedule. Production was now slated to begin in 2019. In August 2018, Sony announced that Silver & Black was canceled in favor of having both characters starring in their own feature films. Black Cat was reportedly a re-worked version of the Silver & Black script while the studio were searching for screenwriters for Silver Sable. Prince-Bythewood would have served as a producer on both projects. As of April 2020, the film is now believed to be cancelled in favor of the proposed television series.

Jeffery Scott Campbell (born April 12, 1973) is an American comic book artist. He was initially known professionally as Jeffery Scott, but is best known as J. Scott Campbell. He rose to fame as an artist for Wildstorm Comics, though he has since done work for Marvel Comics (most notably as a cover artist on The Amazing Spider-Man), and the video game industry.

Campbell went on to co-create the teen superhero team Gen13, which debuted in Deathmate Black (September 1993), before going on to star in their own five-issue miniseries in January 1994. The series was initially co-written by Brandon Choi and Jim Lee, but Campbell became a co-writer with issue #3. The team was eventually given their own regular ongoing series, which debuted in March 1995. Campbell was co-writer on the series until issue #18, and was the regular artist, leaving the book after issue #20 (June 1997).

In 1998, Campbell, together with fellow comics artists Joe Madureira and Humberto Ramos, founded the Cliffhanger imprint as part of Wildstorm Productions. He launched his comic series Danger Girl through this imprint. The story, which followed the adventures of a group of female secret agents, made the most of Campbell’s talents drawing well-endowed women and dramatic action sequences.

The Danger Girl series has since generated a video game for the Sony PlayStation, as well as several comic spinoffs in the forms of limited series and one-shots that were drawn by different artists in the American comics industry. Most of these spin-offs featured story outlines from Campbell himself.

In August 2005, Campbell published Wildsiderz, which he co-created with his Danger Girl writing partner Andy Hartnell.

In April 2010, Hitman: Agent 47 producer Adrian Askarieh announced that he was developing a film based on the comic with Todd Lincoln as director.

In November 2017, Constantin Film acquired the rights to develop Danger Girl as both a film and potential TV series, in partnership with Askarieh’s Prime Universe Films and Jeremy Bolt’s Bolt Pictures.

In February 2018, Umair Aleem was announced as the film’s writer, with creators J. Scott Campbell and Andy Hartnell serving as executive producers alongside Constantin Film’s Martin Moszkowicz.

In March 2019, Jeff Wadlow was announced to write and direct the film.

At the WizardWorld 2006 Comic Convention held in Los Angeles, Marvel Comics announced that Campbell signed an exclusive contract with the company, and to work on a Spider-Man series with writer Jeph Loeb. Between 2001 and 2013 Campbell did numerous covers for The Amazing Spider-Man, including issues 30 – 35 in 2001, 50 – 52 and 500 in 2003, and seven issues done sporadically from issues 601 in 2009 and 700 in 2013. His cover to issue #30 was used as the cover of the 2003 trade paperback that collected issues 30 and 31.
