IRON MAN 2
According to Variety, actress Emily Blunt won’t suit up as the Black Widow since she’s been cast opposite Jack Black in “Gulliver’s Travels.” Maybe. “While Blunt’s reps are still trying to work out scheduling so she can play both roles, it will be an uphill battle because of scheduling overlap. ‘Gulliver’s Travels’ will shoot in the U.K. in late March; ‘Iron Man 2’ is expected to begin lensing in early April in Manhattan Beach, Calif. Earlier this week it seemed that Marvel Entertainment would have to go back to the drawing board to find an actress to play Natasha Romanoff, the Soviet superspy who moonlights as Black Widow, a beauty in a skintight black costume enhanced by high-tech weaponry. But by late Thursday, it looked like Fox and Blunt’s reps were feeling more optimistic that she could do both projects.”

Screenwriter David Bourla is reportedly spoke with Sci Fi Wire. Bourla said, “For me, it was about the ‘what if?’ scenario of these governments who’ve been doing experiments since the ’20s and ’30s to create psychic espionage. If they’d been doing this for all these years, they had to have done something that wasn’t a total flop. Just like we were racing to the moon, everybody was searching for the thing that would help their government get an edge on the other government.”
