Emily Blunt was almost Black Widow a decade ago.

Emily Blunt recently talked more about the fan casting of her and John Krasinksi for Fantastic Four and explained why she isn’t into comic book movies.

Another Fantastic Four reboot is coming, this time from Marvel Studios and Spider-Man director Jon Watts. Nothing beyond a logo has been revealed from the film, but for years fans online have been hoping to see Emily Blunt and John Krasinski lead Marvel’s first family.

Marvel Studios will probably go in a different direction with the Fantastic Four, but Emily Blunt explained on The Howard Stern Show why she isn’t really a big fan of comic book movies anyway:

“It’s not that it’s beneath me. I love Iron Man and when I got offered Black Widow. I was obsessed with Iron Man. I wanted to work with Robert Downey Jr.—it would’ve been amazing…but I don’t know if superhero movies are for me. They’re not up my alley. I don’t like them. I really don’t. It’s been exhausted. We are inundated—it’s not only all the movies, it’s the endless TV shows as well. It’s not to say that I’d never want to play one, it would just have to be something so cool and like a really cool character, and then I’d be interested.”

Here is the official synopsis for Emily Blunt’s A Quiet Place: Part II:
