Some bad news has come in for Marvel fans hoping to see Emily Blunt Fantastic Four. For the past few years, fans doing fantasy casting online have encouraged Blunt to play Invisible Woman in the Fantastic Four Reboot as Mister Fantastic with her husband John Krasinski. After the revelation that the film would complete phase four of the MCU, new rumors surfaced that the real couple and A quiet place Co-stars were in talks for the project.
To promote A quiet place part II, Emily Blunt returned to the Howard Stern Show on Tuesday morning. With so much chatter about their rumored Fantastic Four casting, the conversation finally found its way there during the interview. Wanting a clear answer, Stern asked Blunt directly if the rumors she and her husband were wanted were true Fantastic Fourand that’s what the actress had to say.
“This is fan casting. Nobody got a call. They’re just socialmediagossips saying, ‘Wouldn’t that be great?'”
Stern then wondered if Blunt was “too good an actress to take the role seriously,” and then asked if the entire genre of superhero films was “below” her. While Blunt is part of Iron Man and was originally cast as Black Widow in the MCU, she claims that superhero movies are not among her, but that she just isn’t in love with her.
“It’s not that it’s below me. I love Iron Man, and when I was offered Black Widow, I was obsessed with Iron Man. I wanted to work with Robert Downey Jr. – it would have been amazing … but I wasn’t I know if superhero films are for me. They’re out of my alley. I don’t like them. I really don’t … It’s exhausted. We’re flooded – it’s not just all the movies, it’s the endless television that I never want to play one, it just has to be something cool and like a really cool character, and then I’d be interested. “
If we read between the lines here, Blunt doesn’t seem interested in the role of the invisible woman. Just moments after dispersing the Fantastic Four Rumor has it that the actress hints that she’s still waiting for “a really cool character” to come to convince her to jump into the superhero genre. It seems poor Sue just doesn’t care much about Storm Blunt, but for someone who really doesn’t care about superheroes, this doesn’t come as a surprise.
The good news here is that Krasinski has been much more open to possible joining the MCU Fantastic Four. Last year the Jack Ryan Star spoke about his possible casting as Reed Richards in the film in an interview with ComicBook.com. At the time, Krasinski said he would be ready for the role, adding that he was flattered that so many fans want to see this too.
“I would love to do it,” he said. “I think being part of the Marvel world would be amazing anyway, and the fact that socialmediagossips would even consider me for that level of part would be amazing. I really haven’t had any conversations or don’t know what that’s what happens. I’m waiting [Kevin Feige’s] Announcements about what the hell is going on with it, just like you. “
Hopefully we’ll all find out soon enough who’s being tricked Fantastic Four so the speculation can finally end. Meanwhile, Blunt can be seen in A quiet place part IIwhich hits theaters on May 28th. The film will also be streamed on Paramount + 45 days after its premiere. This message comes to us from The Howard Stern Show. Amazing art above from the infamous BossLogic.
