Emily Blunt Doesn’t Want To Be In A Superhero Movie

Marvel Cinematic Universe fans, I’m sorry to say, but it seems that the possibility of Emily Blunt appearing in a superhero film in the future is extremely unlikely.

During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Blunt who was reportedly in the frame at one stage for the roles of Black Widow and Peggy Carter, has categorically dismissed the chances of appearing in a superhero film in the future.

The Quiet Place Part II actress is frequently brought up by fans when it comes to the potential casting of Sue Storm in the new Fantastic Four film that will be a part of the MCU.

However, in a new interview, Blunt has once again seemingly permanently shut the door on any chance of making an appearance in a future superhero film, saying:

I really understand that superhero movies are like a religion for a lot of people. They don’t appeal to me in the same way. I don’t have this burning desire to play a superhero.

Given how often she has been asked this question in interviews, this feels like a pretty definitive answer on Blunt’s part that should put these rumours to bed once and for all.

While Blunt’s husband, John Krasinski has said he’d like to talk to MCU head honcho Kevin Feige about the role of Reed Richards, unless there’s a massive change of heart on her part, Blunt is unlikely to be suiting up to be in a superhero film any time soon.

Given the chemistry that Blunt and Krasinski share on-screen, I reckon Blunt would have made a perfect Sue Storm, but any chance of her appearing in the MCU is now quite remote.
