Emily Blunt Eyed for Iron Man 2
Posted 01.14.09 by reelz
Iron Man 2 casting news is all over the web this week, and besides the recent report about Mickey Rourke and Sam Rockwell in talks to play villains, we know of another potential pick being put out there -- that of The Devil Wears Prada actress Emily Blunt, who's being considered for femme fatale Black Widow.
Variety says she's the frontrunner to play the role of Natasha Romanoff, a sexy Soviet super spy who wears a skin-tight black costume enhanced with high-tech weaponry. Now what would Miranda think about that?!!
Blunt's career will be getting a big boost if this rumor turns out to be true. Her highest profile gig to date will come later this year as leading lady in Benicio Del Toro's The Wolfman.
What do you think? Does Blunt have what it takes to be Black Widow?
