With Emily Blunt's casting in Iron Man 2 only weeks old, it appears she may not be able to take part in the forthcoming sequel from Marvel Entertainment after all. Variety reports that Blunt was indeed offered the role of Black Widow, but her commitment to another movie, Gulliver's Travels, co-starring Jack Black and Jason Segel, may get in the way, with the production schedule for both movies being too close together.
Further messing with Blunt's potential involvement in Iron Man 2 is movie studio Fox, which has Blunt on the hook to make another movie for them and may force her to do Gulliver. So far, Fox and Blunt's representative are optimistic that she can do both movies, but everyone knows how much Fox likes to complicate other studios trying to produce a superhero movie.
