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.
