It was recently revealed that Emily Blunt met with Marvel Studios executives while working on Disney's The Jungle Cruise and while there's no word on who the actress might be playing, this wouldn't be the first time she's come close to joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Blunt previously missed out on the chance to play both Black Widow and Peggy Carter, while she was also considered for Iron Man 3's lead villain before Marvel Entertainment CEO Isaac Perlmutter decided that moviegoers wouldn't pay to see such a thing. Needless to say, that's nonsense, and it's about damn time the Mary Poppins Returns star join a major comic book franchise.
The question is, which character is she being considered for this time? Well, there are a number of very likely possibilities and based on the projects Marvel Studios has in the works and some recent rumours, we've now rounded up the top contenders.
Blunt is an excellent actress and there's a lot she could bring to any number of franchises both on the big screen and the small one now that the MCU is expanding on Disney+...
