Emily Blunt Responds to Fantastic Four Rumors
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has long been developing the Fantastic Four’s entrance into the franchise. Naturally, there have been rumors of John Krasinski and Emily Blunt taking on the title Roles; Emily blunt has responded to those Fantastic Four rumors.
Sue Storm and Reed Richards are perhaps the pinnacle power couple of Marvel Comics.
Two-fourths of the Fantastic Four, Mr. Fantastic, and The Invisible Woman have been involved in some of the most iconic storylines the publisher had to offer.
There was even a time, perhaps, when Marvel’s first family were the most popular and widely consumed property Marvel had to offer.
The cosmic adventures the team would encounter are a vital factor to what sets them apart from other properties.
Since Marvel has reacquired the rights to the formerly Fox-owned property, rumors have been swirling; with fans eager to share who they think should make up the popular Marvel team.
One of the most popular fan suggestions for the roles of Reed Richards and Sue Storm is the real-life power couple of Emily Blunt and John Krasinski.
Emily Blunt has finally responded to those Fantastic Four Rumors on The Howard Stern Show.
In response to the claims of her potentially taking on the role, the Marry Poppins Returns actress stated, “That is fan-casting. No one has received a phone call. That’s just people saying, ‘wouldn’t that be great?'”
She went on to say, “But I don’t know if superhero movies are for me. They’re not up my alley. I don’t like them. I really don’t.”
“It’s been exhausted. We are inundated- it’s not only all the movies, it’s the endless TV shows as well. It’s not to say that id never play one, it would just have to be something so cool and like a really cool character, and then id be interested.”
These responses to the Fantastic Four Rumors clearly cast doubt on the actor’s willingness to step into a Marvel role, but it may also be by design.
Her statements do sound legitimate considering the esteemed actress was offered the role of Natasha Romanoff prior to Scarlett Johannson’s casting in 2010’s Iron Man 2.
Although the actress is adamant about her displeasure with the genre, and her lack of involvement with the people at Marvel; uncertainty remains as to whether or not Blunt and Krasinksi’s representatives have been in contact with the studio as possible fits for the role.
Taking Blunt at her word, and fans have a clear answer to whether or not her collaboration with Marvel Studios would be a good fit.
