Emily Blunt As Captain Marvel? Here’s What She Says

Ever since Marvel Studios officially announced Captain Marvel as part of their upcoming Phase Three slate, fans have been wildly speculating about who the company would hire to play their first female superhero. Emily Blunt is a name that has been tossed around a bit, the actress coming off an awesome action-heavy performance in Doug Liman’s Edge of Tomorrow, but would it be a role that she would be interested in?
This very question was posed to the actress recently in an interview with ScreenCrush, and while she tried practically every method imaginable to divert the query, she ultimately delivered a rather vague response regarding her personal interest. Said the Devil Wears Prada star, “I think, it’s always for me, it’s always about—and now, more so—what am I putting out there? What would be interesting for me and what would be interesting for people to see. So, if it’s an awesome part, it doesn’t matter if it’s a Marvel movie or a tiny movie, I’d be up for it.”
In the interview, Emily Blunt notes that she had just been recently told by her brother about audiences fancasting her as Captain Marvel – though she added that she knows nothing about the character and hasn’t been approached or contacted about it in any way. She does also like the idea of being a role model for young girls as the first female Marvel Studios superhero, but that obviously doesn’t change the current status of her involvement.
Marvel die-hards will note that this actually isn’t the first time that Emily Blunt has been linked to activities over at Marvel Studios. All the way back in 2009 there were talks that said Blunt was in negotiations for the role of Natasha Romanoff a.k.a. Black Widow in Jon Favreau’s Iron Man 2. Unfortunately, the actress was locked into a contract with 20th Century Fox at the time, which meant that she had to go make Gulliver’s Travels with Jack Black and would be unavailable for the Iron Man 2 production period. Eventually Scarlett Johansson got the part and she has gone on to have great success in the role, but fans have still always wondered what could have been with Emily Blunt as S.H.I.E.L.D.’s number one field agent.
Hopefully Marvel Studios is keeping Emily Blunt in mind, but the truth is that it may be a long, long time before we see any forward movement on the Captain Marvel casting front. After all, the project isn’t scheduled to be released until 2019, which means that Marvel may not need to actually lock in an actresses until 2017/2018. In the meantime, audiences will next be able to see Blunt in one of the lead roles of Rob Marshall’s Into The Woods, which will be in theaters on Christmas Day.

Emily Blunt Reveals the Family Tradition

Emily Blunt said that as a child, it was a family tradition to read a story before bed. Now that she’s a mother herself, she’s making sure to do the same with her daughter, Hazel.
“She’s nine months old but she understands. She sits on me, this little thing, and she understands turning a page already and going on a journey,” Blunt marveled during an interview with E! News. “I think it’s amazing.”
Blunt, 31, and her husband John Krasinski, 35, welcomed Hazel this past February. And while the “Into the Woods” star realizes that technology is changing the way we read, she still wants her daughter to appreciate physical books.
“I just want her to have that satisfaction I had as a kid of finishing a book and the chunk of it and the weight of it and putting the book down and it’s done,” she said. “You want things to be sensory for kids.”
It doesn’t help either that the actress is a self-proclaimed “dinosaur” when it comes to gadgets. “I know I have to sort of go with the flow, and this is what’s happening and it’s this generation,” she said. “She’s going to teach me more than any computer class, I’m sure!”

Emily Blunt tells how she hid baby bump

Emily Blunt and Meryl Streep have explained how Emily managed to keep her baby bump out of view while filming Into The Woods. The Devil Wears Prada star plays The Baker’s Wife alongside James Corden in the fantasy film, a character who desperately wants a child, but in real life she discovered she was pregnant with daughter Hazel just before filming began.
According to E!, Meryl, who plays The Witch, told official Disney fan club magazine D23: “That was pretty funny. They were constantly putting James Corden (The Baker) in front of her belly, raising her apron higher and higher.”
Emily agreed: “I was hiding behind every tree in that wood! Colleen Atwood, who’s the most remarkable costume designer, as everybody knows, was so accommodating. I would say towards the end, every four or five days they were making some adjustments.”
She added: “The fact that I was pregnant actually was a rather transporting thing, and a very helpful experience in a way to understanding the urgent need that this woman has for a baby. “Here I was, feeling incredibly blessed and understanding what the character maybe is missing out on.”

Luckily most of it could be restored. I also got a new laptop. But now there’s one hell of a chaos on my new laptop and it will take some time to sort all out. Don’t worry, you can expect regulary updates asap! 😉

Emily Blunt’s daughter is her ‘travel buddy’

Emily Blunt thinks her baby daughter is a good “travel buddy”. The 31-year-old actress took her four-month-old daughter Hazel, whom she shares with her husband John Krasinski, with her when she promoted her new movie Edge of Tomorrow earlier this month and she insists the tiny tot is settling into her new jet-setting life. Speaking to Ireland’s RTÉ Ten, she said: “She’s a good little travel buddy. It’s tough to leave and go and work as this is my first time back since she was born but I just see her whenever I can and every hour, any moment, I have free she’s with me and it’s alright.”
Meanwhile, the blonde beauty recently admitted that since becoming a mother her priorities have changed and she’s going to be more selective about the roles she takes on in the future. She said previously: “I think I’ll be very specific about what I do because it does switch your focus and everything in me just wants to be with her right now so it’ll be interesting.”

Tom Cruise told Emily Blunt she was a wuss

Tom Cruise told Emily Blunt not to be a “wuss” during filming for Edge Of Tomorrow. The 51-year-old actor, who stars alongside the actress in the new combat film didn’t tell her how heavy the costumes were before they got on set, and admits she burst into tears when she tried hers on.
Speaking to US chat show host Jimmy Kimmel, Tom said: “I made sure I was there the first day when she tried it on and was doing her stunts. She cried. “I was standing there, all the stunt guys left, I’m friends with her husband John, and I looked at her and was like, ‘What do you say at that moment?’ “I thought, I just have to try and make her laugh, I was very serious and said, ‘Don’t be such a wuss’, she looked at me for a second and then burst out laughing.”
Tom insists he asked if there was any way the costumes could be made lighter and claims Emily trained for three months for her stunt scenes. He said: “When I got it on, I thought, ‘There’s no way to make it any lighter’. I knew it was going to be challenging. It just looks cool on film.”
