Emily Blunt Out Of “Iron Man 2”

Director Jon Favreau tellsThe Playlist that 20th Century Fox has exercised its option for Emily Blunt to star in “Gulliver’s Travels”.

The result is she is now officially unavailable to star in the “Iron Man” sequel as Russian superspy Natasha Romanoff, who doubles as Black Widow.

As for Mickey Rourke as the villain, all he said is he “isn’t officially cast but that he is a fan.” Robert Downey Jr. says they’re still “slaving away on a hot script” for the sequel.
