Emily Blunt reveals why she turned down Black Widow in ‘Iron Man 2’


There have been many requests over time for Emily Blunt to play a role in a Marvel Studios production. The first story that she was able to achieve the above goes back to 2010, within the framework of the filming of Iron Man 2, a film in which Natasha Romanoff, better known as Black Widow, made her first appearance in this universe.
