Rumors have it that Scarlett Johansson may replace Emily as Black Widow in Iron Man 2. Emily is instead set to star in Gulliver’s Travels. Thank you to Rope of Silicon for a brief article.
The news comes as Blunt still has a scheduling conflict as she is set to star in Gulliver’s Travels for Fox and may not be able to make both films at the same time. The role in question is that of Russian superspy Natasha Romanoff, who doubles as Black Widow.
Interesting enough, the big talk around the Internet this past week came when word the script for Iron Man 2 still wasn’t finished. With an April 15 start date set for Gulliver’s Travels who knows, maybe that film will be finished by the time Blunt is needed for Iron Man 2.
