Emily Blunt has emerged as the frontrunner to play the role of Natasha Romanoff in the "Iron Man" sequel. She's a Soviet super spy who doubles as Black Widow, a beauty in a skintight black costume that is enhanced by high-tech weaponry.I haven't seen her in "The Devil Wears Prada" or "Charlie WIlson's War" so I can't say what her acting talents are like. It's interesting that Samuel L. Jackson was talking about Marvel being hit by the recession and might not be able to afford to pay him to play Nick Fury. Yet we know Mickey Rourke and Sam Rockwell have been in talks. There was also the rumor of Tim Robbins being cast as Howard Stark. It seems weird that they'd be willing to bring in all these other stars yet not want to have Sam Jackson, who had a cameo in the first movie. Maybe there's more to that.
I want to know if Hawkeye will be in it and who will play him. Let's get this movie production started already.
