Who is Black Cat?

Sony owns the film rights to Spider-Man and with that Black Cat and was at one time going to do a Black Cat and Silver Sable project; however, the project never happened.

In the comics, Black Cat is Felicia Hardy, a cat burglar who is at times Spidey’s enemy and at times his ally.

Marvel.com offers: “Growing up as the daughter of world-famous cat burglar Walter Hardy, Felicia learns confidence from her father and to seize life by the horns. In college, Felicia’s assaulted by her college boyfriend Ryan, so she  trains in martial arts and acrobatics to kill her rapist.”

“We have a legacy to protect,” says Tom Holland

Spider-Man 4 doesn’t have a release date or a director as of yet.

Tom Holland recently said he wants to get the flick right.

“We have the best in the business working toward whatever the story might be. But until we’ve cracked it, we have a legacy to protect,” he said last month. “The third movie was so special in so many ways that we need to make sure we do the right thing.”

Holland added, “This is the first time in this process that I’ve been part of the creative so early. It’s just a process where I’m watching and learning. It’s just a really fun stage for me. Like I said, everyone wants it to happen. But we want to make sure we’re not overdoing the same things.”
