Emily Blunt Is Glad She Was Never in a Superhero Movie: “We Wore It as a Badge of Honor”

Emily Blunt Is Glad She Was Never in a Superhero Movie We Wore It as a Badge of Honor

Emily Blunt as some of you know, was almost cast as Black Widow in ‘Iron Man 2’ but she had to pass on the opportunity to play the character due to her contractual obligations to do ‘Gulliver’s Travels.’

As we all know, superhero movies have quite a polarizing reputation in Hollywood, with some established directors and actors mocking them, while others owning their careers to them, as was the case with MCU’s Robert Downey Jr. whose career was revived with ‘Iron Man’ and Tom Holland, who was launched into stardom via ‘Spider-Man.’

Recently, while promoting their latest movie ‘Fall Guy’ Emily Blut and Ryan Gosling touched upon the topic of superhero movies, Ryan Gosling stated previously that he would like to play MCU’s Ghost Rider which left Blunt shocked.

Apparently, the two were proud of not being in a superhero movie so far, which is something that Blunt had no problems stating, however, it seems that Gosling had a change of heart in the meantime.

Emily Blunt: I thought we wore it as a badge of honor that we weren’t in superhero movies.

Ryan Gosling: No, you do.

This is not the first time that Blut has thrown shade on superhero movies. A few years ago, Blunt explained that superhero movies are really not up her alley, and going by her explanation it seems that she suffered (and still suffers) from a serious case of superhero fatigue.

It’s not that it’s beneath me. It’s not. I loved ‘Iron Man,’ and I wanted to work with Robert Downey Jr.It would have been amazing, but I don’t know if superheroes are for me. They’re not up my alley. I think it’s been exhausted. We are inundated. It’s not that it’s only the movies, it’s the endless TV shows as well.
