Emily Blunt Could Be Cast as Villain in 'Iron Man 3'


Emily Blunt
The film's producers are rumored desperate to get the British beauty to star as Iron Man's enemy in the next film.


After Scarlett Johansson, another big actress may seduce Tony Stark in the upcoming "Iron Man" film. According to Daily Mail, producers are trying to land Emily Blunt to star in "Iron Man 3" and portray a new villainous character. "They are desperate to have Emily as the villain in the next Iron Man film," a source says, without mentioning further detail about the role.

Additionally, the source affirms that Gwyneth Paltrow will still portray Pepper Potts in the third "Iron Man" movie. However, unlike Johansson and Robert Downey Jr. who will appear as Black Widow and Iron Man respectively in another Marvel film "The Avengers", Paltrow will not be featured in this forthcoming superhero flick.

"Iron Man 3" is projected for 2012 release with Jon Favreau attached to return to the directing seat. The helmer previously dished on the possible villain in the movie, saying "You have to do The Mandarin." This follow-up to "Iron Man 2" will likely go into production after "The Avengers" which features several superhero characters from Marvel universe.

Emily Blunt's latest big screen appearance was in "The Wolfman" in which she starred opposite Benicio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins. "The Young Victoria" star will next be seen in "The Adjustment Bureau" and "Gulliver's Travels".
