Yes, Scarlett Johansson and Hayley Atwell are happy with their questionable decisions
If there’s anything Marvel can be proud of – even now, amid its decline in popularity – it’s their casting department, which He has always chosen the best people for each role, And, in fact, one of the most iconic roles in its history is that of Natasha Romanoff, the Black Widow, played by Scarlett Johansson in nine films (including the ‘Captain Marvel’ post-credits). But It could have been someone else… who is still thinking about turning down the job.
On the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Emily Blunt talked about the time she was about to dye her hair and dedicate herself to shooting at UCM: “Come on, he got the better of the two”, adding that Johansson was “incredible” as the widow. In his time he talked about this role and the role of Peggy Carter, which he also could have gotten: “Nobody has officially offered it to me, so it’s not official. literally, it was never the right timeAnd it didn’t fit into the plan.”
Whenever there’s a major role in the MCU, like Sue Storm, Rumors immediately say it will go to Blunt, but it may be more fan-casting than anything else. she at least dismisses it by saying “Rumors. Talks. Consultations. That sort of thing”, One of the movies she had to say no to was Black Widow in ‘The Avengers’ because she already had her promise (or, rather, he had her commit to it) that still gives her a headache. Is. And no less: he rejected the Marvel epic for… ‘Gulliver’s Travels’.
“It breaks my heart a little because I’m so proud of my decisions, and the movies i make mean a lot to me, which was difficult. In Fox they have a kind of control over you. There are other movies I’d love to do.” Ultimately, without Marvel’s need, his career has stagnated over the past decade with roles in “A Quiet Place”, “Oppenheimer” or “Edge of Tomorrow”. And casting for the new installment of ‘Fantastic Four’ is still open. Crossing my fingers that it doesn’t last.
