It's Official: No Emily Blunt in Iron Man 2
Posted 02.23.09 by Ryan
At the Oscars last night, E! caught up with Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau, who said that Emily Blunt was officially out as Black Widow for Iron Man 2. According to The Playlist, Favreau told E! that Fox was indeed exercising their option on Blunt for Gulliver's Travels, and that she won't be available for Iron Man 2. Maybe now Eliza Dushku's campaign for the role is more than wishful thinking!
Favreau also mentioned that while Mickey Rourke was not "officially cast," Favreau was still a big fan of Rourke. We have an idea of what may entice Rourke to sign on: a sum of money above $250,000.
