After Seeing THE AVENGERS Did Emily Blunt Regret Passing On Black Widow Role?
Emily Blunt passed up the roles of Black Widow in Iron Man 2 and Peggy Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger. Screenrant sat down with the actress to see if she regretted her decision after seeing Joss Whedon's The Avengers.
In the past Emily says she passed on the two comic book movie roles because one wasn't very good and the other was due to bad timing. She didn't clarify which was which, but I'll assume the Black Widow role is the poorer of the two. Scarlett Johanson, who ended up in the role, didn't have a lot to do in Iron Man 2, but it paid off in spades with a much better part in Joss Whedon's The Avengers. Emily Blunt just didn't have the vision to see what lay ahead.
Screen Rant: Were you upset that you didn’t get to play the role when you saw the film?
EB: No! No… because I really never get like that, and I’m never regretful about not doing something; I didn’t do it at the time because it wasn’t the right time and I was contracted to do something else. But Scarlett [Johansson] has done such a phenomenal job – she’s it! Like why even reminisce about what could’ve been? She’s it and she nailed it and I love ‘The Avengers,’ I really found it to be really good fun.
Would you still consider playing a different superhero role?
Yeah! It would just have to be the right kind of part – the right part, the right moment, and all of that.
