AceShowbiz - Emily Blunt apparently likes the idea of her starring in a superhero movie, but no one has officially made an offer yet. Speaking to Vulture to promote her new release "Into the Woods", the actress said that she heard rumor of her being linked to "Captain Marvel", but she never received official offer. "Oh! No one's offered me that officially, so it's ... [laughs] very unofficial. I think it's fan-casting, which is always very nice. But nothing official has been offered, for sure," she said.
In the interview, she additionally talked about two Marvel roles, Black Widow and Peggy Carter, which she had to pass on because of commitments to other projects. "Yeah, but it was never the right time, really, and it just didn't work out scheduling-wise with those two [roles]. It's always a difficult thing to talk about, because it's not fair to the actresses who ended up playing them, you know? It just wasn't the right time," she shared.
"Captain Marvel" which focuses on the U.S. Air Force pilot Carol Danvers is set to be released on July 6, 2018. Other stars who previously were linked to the character include Katee Sackhoff and Natalie Dormer.
Blunt's musical movie "Into the Woods" is currently playing in theaters. Also starring Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, Johnny Depp and Chris Pine, it garnered approximately $31 million in its first week.
