Felicity Jones‘s role in the upcoming “Amazing Spider-Man 2” blockbuster has been shrouded in mystery. No one knew if she would be a villain, an ally to Andrew Garfield‘s Spider-Man, or something completely new and surprising … until now.
The “Like Crazy” actress recently revealed that she will be taking on the role of the Goblin’s girlfriend and sidekick, officially joining the dark side. “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,” Jones said in an interview with View London.
Many fans thought Jones would be portraying Black Cat, but the news that she will be Harry Osborne’s (Dane DeHaan) girlfriend is intriguing, especially since we still don’t know her name. “I can’t say [what her name is] actually. It’s all in the vaults of Marvel,” Jones said. “I love all that secrecy, I think it’s great. It builds anticipation, there’s too much transparency in everything these days.”
In the comics, Osborne’s girlfriend is Lily Holister, who stumbles across one of Harry’s father’s hideouts. She gains her powers when she accidentally gets covered in Goblin serum, and becomes the evil Menace. She doesn’t let her boyfriend Harry in on her secret, though, so we’re guessing the movie version of the character will differ in some ways from the comic book version.
