Iron Man 2 wants Emily Blunt

Let's throw in some more casting rumors for Iron Man 2. We got word last week that Mickey Rourke and Sam Rockwell will most likely be in the film, but that's not enough as far as possible villains go. Variety recently reported that Jon Favreau is itching to get a femme fatale role in the film. How about Black Widow? Emily Blunt is being considered for the role of the black-suited, high tech inclined, ass kicking beauty. She's played roles in S.H.I.E.L.D., so her casting makes sense in an Iron Man film. But I really hope that this doesn't turn into Spider-Man 3, where Venom was put in just because and the film felt too crowded between Green Goblin Jr., Sandman and Venom. Blunt definitely has the looks for the part, and the Black Widow is a character that not too many people know about so there won't be too many expectations of the character. This is obviously a rumor at this point, but if it does pan out it definitely seems that Iron Man 2 is shaping up to be pretty awesome. And no, her costume won't be similar to that above, but I just want you to get the idea of what to expect in terms of sex appeal. Emily Blunt to play Black Widow
