Does Marvel Want Emily Blunt As 'Captain Marvel'?


When Marvel officially announced their plans for Phase Three, one of the projects they revealed was the highly-anticipated Captain Marvel, which is set for release on July 6, 2018. With the project still over three and a half years away, we likely won't hear who will play the title character anytime soon, but one of the actresses who fans have mentioned for the role is Emily Blunt. While doing press for her Christmas Day musical Into the Woods, the actress was asked if she would be open to starring in Captain Marvel.

She is a super hot talented actress who was originally cast as Black Widow but had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts with Gulivers Travels.

I think she should have picked Black Widow over a part in Gulivers Travels...

Meh...hopefully not

I like her but hopefully they'll pick someone else like Katee Sackhoff, Rosamund Pike or Yvonne Strahovski

WizzroSupreme2299d ago

Yvonne's blonde and that's about all she'd be for Captain Marvel; Katee Sackhoff's too mainstream to make the role feel fresh. I wouldn't mind Rosamund Pike, or Emily Blunt, for that matter.

She'll to the job grand one of the best picks in my opinion.

What about katheryn winnick?

longcat2298d ago (Edited 2298d ago )

I think she would be a good pick. Must suck for her knowing that she turned down black widow

Lord_Sloth2298d ago (Edited 2298d ago )

Not since she's getting a shot at Captain Marvel, the deeper of the characters imo.

longcat2296d ago (Edited 2296d ago )

Yeah, she must have some kind of casting Guardian angel. Or the best agent in the biz

I think Katheryn Winnick would be better imo, I love her in Vikings. I'm sure that whomever Marvel hires will fit the character perfectly because they've done a great job so far.
Here's a fanart of Katheryn Winnick as Captain Marvel isn't she sexy?

Porcelain_Chicken2298d ago

Wow that looks good. Real good. I wouldn't complain if Blunt got the role though.

cell9892298d ago

I loved her role in Edge of Tomorrow. 2014s most underrated movie

Porcelain_Chicken2298d ago

Yeah man agreed!!! She was awesome. Would be glad to see in pretty much any reccuring role!

Defectiv3_Detectiv32298d ago

They are probably going to want somebody with some name recognition, Capt. Marvel is going to be headlining her own film isn't she? In the case of Gal Gadot playing Superwoman, at least audiences will be familiar with her from BvS.

Lord_Sloth2298d ago

Wonder Woman not Superwoman...

I also believe that Blunt has more recognition. Sure, Gadot is in the Fast series but nobody watching that series knows anybody that isn't Walker, Deisel, Johnson, or Rodriguez anyways.

And seriously, who knew the name Hemsworth before Thor launched? Who had heard of Cavill that didn't watch the Tudors before he played the Man of Steel?

Marvel is leaning on the character names to sell the movies rather than the actors and actresses.
