From Secret SHIELD Agent to Villain
was originally cast to be Black Widow
in Iron Man 2
before Scarlett Johansson
but due to other commitments she had to drop the role. British newspaper The Daily Mail
recently published an article respecting the rivalry that took place on the Iron Man 2 set between Gwyneth Paltrow
and Scar Jo. After "announcing" that the plan is to have Scar Jo reprise the role of Black Widow in "a break-out movie from Iron Man" the article also says this:
"Now I hear producers are planning to give Scarlett her own role in a break-out movie and are also hoping to land British star Emily Blunt to play the villain in the next Iron Man installment."
"They are desperate to have Emily as the villain in the next Iron Man film "
So they are desperate? I am guessing that's an hyperbole right there. This is probably just speculation since it has not been announced by Marvel Studios themselves. Although Blunt has worked with Captain America: The First Avenger
's director Joe Johnston
during The Wolfman
, so she might have some "backstage access" to the production of the Marvel movies. I am not sure how trustworthy this newspaper is, so right now this is only a rumor but if Emily Blunt were to play a villain in IM3 who could she play?
