The Devil Wears Prada actress Emily Blunt has revealed that, even though she has previously turned down roles in both Iron Man 2 and Captain America, she would love to do a comic book movie in the future. Emily claims that the only reason she turned down the roles in the Marvel movies was because the female characters never seem to have very big roles.
Blunt explained, “Usually the female parts in a superhero film feel thankless: She’s the pill girlfriend while the guys are whizzing around saving the world. I didn’t do the other ones because the part wasn’t very good or the timing wasn’t right, but I’m open to any kind of genre if the part is great and fun and different and a challenge in some way.”
She added, “I would love to do a comic-book movie or a science-fiction film that would scare the bejesus out of me. Maybe I need to be James Bond!” You can catch Emily Blunt, starring alongside Ewan McGregor, in her latest movie Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, which is set to be released in the US on March 9 and in the UK on April 20.
