We’ve been getting lots of Iron Man 2 news recently! Just over a week ago we got the news that Mickey Rourke and Sam Rockwell had landed roles in the sequel. Yesterday Paul Bettany said he would be returning as Jarvis, and earlier today we got the crappy news that Samuel Jackson may not be retuning as Nick Fury. Now Variety report that Emily Blunt is the frontrunner to play Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow. The character is a Soviet super spy and wears a skintight black costume that is enhanced by high-tech weaponry.
Emily Blunt’s career continues to improve. She got her big break in The Devil Wears Prada, and has had roles in The Jane Austen Book Club, Charlie Wilson’s War, and is playing the lead female in upcoming The Wolf Man alongside Benicio Del Toro.
