Emily Blunt debunks e Mr. Fantastic (a.k.a. Reed Richards) and The Invisible Woman in a new “Fantastic Four” film from Marvel Studios after Disney bought 20th Century Fox and paved the way for a new “Fantastic Four” film from Marvel Studios (a.k.a. Sue Storm).
“That is fan-casting,” Blunt said. “No one has received a phone call. That’s just people saying, ‘Wouldn’t that be great?’”
Blunt said she doesn’t think superhero movies are “behind her” — in fact, she said in another interview with Entertainment Weekly that having to turn down the role of Black Widow in “Iron Man 2” due to a contractual commitment to star in “Gulliver’s Travels” “irked her spirit.” Despite this, she hasn’t found something in the superhero genre that “really appeals to” her.
“I was obsessed with Iron Man,” Blunt told Stern. “I wanted to work with Robert Downey Jr. It would’ve been amazing. But I don’t know if superhero movies are for me. They’re not up my alley. I don’t like them. I really don’t.”
