Could Scarlett Johansson step in for Emily Blunt in Iron Man 2?
With word that Emily Blunt might be forced to drop out of the Black Widow role in the superhero sequel thanks to commitments to Gulliver’s Travels, it was only natural that other names would start cropping up.
And while nothing has been decided – for all anyone knows, Blunt could still be locked in to play ultra-cool lady spy Natasha Romanoff if the scheduling issues can be worked out.
But Entertainment Weekly has heard that Scarlett Johansson has met with Jon Favreau and the Marvel producers, which makes us think that they’re readying an emergency back up if Blunt has to cancel.
Johansson doesn’t really seem to fit the part if you ask us – we’d much rather have Blunt in the part.
What do you think? Big ups for Blunt or slavering over Scarlett?
