According to EW's sources, if Emily Blunt bails on IRON MAN 2 to work with Jack Black on the comedy adventure film GULLIVER'S TRAVELS at Fox... then replacing her as Black Widow in the Marvel sequel might be Scarlett Johansson. Their "sources around Hollywood" claim that Johansson is interested in the role which will lead onto bigger things in future films and Marvel of course are attracted by the big name. I do genuinely like Johansson and despite her struggling to look comfortable in any role since MATCH POINT four years ago, I do think she is a really talented actress. She just needs the right material to shine and someone who knows how to use her because her range doesn't cover anything. In my opinion, this is not the role for her. She doesn't have the figure of the Black Widow, the acting style or the believability to pull it off quite as easily as Emily Blunt, who after all was the perfect casting choice. I could see Johansson as the seductive Poison Ivy in a Batman film but not as a superhero/villain in the IRON MAN franchise. GULLIVER'S TRAVELS begins production on April 15th. IRON MAN 2 will shoot around then but currently haven't got a finalised script... the lack of clear and definite dates on both fronts hint that Blunt won't be able to do the film.
