Seems Like a Nice Girl But She is NOT The Black Widow

IRON MAN 2 casting rumors continue to swirl, including Sam Rockwell (whose every role seems to get labeled his "breakthrough performance" only to see the film bomb), the hot again Mickey Rourke, and – according to a story at SlashFilm – Emily Blunt.

Blunt, memorable as the high-strung assistant in THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, seems better suited as a non-superhero romantic interest but the story reports that she's being considered for the role of The Black Widow, a curvy, hot Soviet-spy-turned-assassin.

Don't get me wrong. Blunt seems like a nice gal and a fine actress. But The Black Widow she is not. Not to get all comic nerd geeky on you or anything.
