Now that

Scarlett Johansson has

kicked the board and

sued Disney

for what she believes was not fulfilling her contract for

Black Widow

(alleges that the film was released simultaneously in theaters on the Disney + streaming platform, and that was not in their agreement, so she lost earnings by percentage of the box office in theaters), remembering that

Emily Blunt

could be Natasha Romanoff gives chills.

I interviewed the Londoner Blunt (38) on the occasion of the premiere of

Jungle Cruise

, which from this Friday is available at an additional cost on Disney +, and from Thursday it is shown in theaters.

In addition to being a great actress, Emily Blunt was the girlfriend of Michael Bublé, current husband of Luisana Lopilato.

In 2005, the singer and Blunt met at an event in Australia.

Soon after, they started dating.

However, things did not work out and in July 2008, after three years of dating, Emily Blunt and Michael Bublé separated.

Apparently, the reason was that Bublé was unfaithful to the model Tiffany Bromley, who admitted to taking photos of the singer naked, photos that later went viral.  

Blunt, who and has her stint at Disney, since she starred in

The Return of Mary Poppins

, for example, had originally been chosen to play Natasha Romanoff / Back Widow in

Iron Man 2

(2010).

But by then he dropped out of the project.

Why wasn't Black Widow

It was not contract problems, but due to a clash of filming dates that he had with another movie:

Gulliver's Travels

, with Jack Black.

What is said, a visionary ...

In Zoom's interview with Blunt there was also

Dwayne Johnson

, his partner in the film that is based on the

ride

, the attraction of Disney's theme parks, as Frank, the captain of the boat that takes up the Amazon river to the doctor in botany who plays Blunt, and who goes in search of a mythical tree whose petals would have healing powers.

Along with Dwayne Johnson and the director of "Jungle Cruise", the Catalan Jaume Collet-Serra.

And, not knowing anything about what would happen, two weeks ago I asked Blunt ...

-Emily, do you regret having said no to playing Black Widow in “Iron Man 2”?

-Dwayne:

We have talked about that.

The interview with Blunt was in conjunction with Dwayne Johnson.

-Emily:

No, no, no, none.

I think Scarlett (Johansson) has been absolutely brilliant.

And it was for a few different reasons that I didn't do it (work on the film), and I couldn't do it.

But no, I think Scarlett is amazing.

I love her as an actress, I love her as a person, and I know that… I have always believed that what is mine is mine, and what is someone else is someone else's.

And that (the role of Black Widow) was always intended to be someone else's.

-Dwayne:

I always thought that Emily would be a great invisible woman.

-Emily:

Yes ...

-Dwayne:

Like the sequel to

The Invisible Man

.

Just do

The Invisible Woman

, but not where Elisabeth Moss is playing the role, but where she is actually invisible.

All very funny, but it is known that Dwayne Johnson charged more than Blunt, and now that the rumor has spread that Emma Stone is evaluating if she also initiates a lawsuit for the same reason as Scarlett Johansson, but for

Cruella

, it is not going to be that Blunt, star of

A Quiet Place Part 2

, currently on the bill, follow in the footsteps of whoever got his role in

Black Widow

.
