Favreau: Blunt Won’t Play Black Widow in IRON MAN 2!!

I am – Hercules!!
Emily Blunt, who formed that level of management between Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway in “The Devil Wears Prada,” will not play possible future Avenger Black Widow in "Iron Man 2."

Disappointing! Someone named “Script Grrl” (no relation to AICN’s) wrote to The Playlist:
On E!'s post show at the red carpet of some party, Jon Favreau said that Fox exercised its ["Gulliver's Travellers"] option on Emily Blunt, and that she definitely won't be in 'Iron Man 2.' The reporter was chatting with Favreau and asking about what he can tell them about 'IM2.' He said Mickey Rourke isn't officially cast but that he is a fan.
Soviet superspy Natasha Romanoff made her initial Marvel Universe appearance in the Iron Man feature of 1964's Tales of Suspense #52.

Scarlett Johansson, meanwhile, has also been rumored for the Widow role.

And Eliza Dushku, who plays a Russian on an upcoming episode of “Dollhouse,” told Howard Stern 10 days ago that she wanted the role real bad.
