Emily Blunt becomes the invisible woman of the MCU in this awesome Fantastic Four fan art. Years ago, Blunt was considered for the role of Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But the role ultimately went to Scarlett Johansson. Nonetheless, Blunt found his way into the action genre thanks to his roles in Edge of Tomorrow, Sicario, and A Quiet Place. Blunt is now a frequent choice with fans for the role of Sue Storm, aka the Invisible Woman,. Who was previously played by Jessica Alba and Kate Mara. With the MCU looking to add the Fantastic Four in the years to come, there’s a lot of anticipation surrounding their cast.
Despite being one of the best-known Marvel properties, the Fantastic Four had a bit of a hard time making it to the big screen. The first real attempts in the early 2000s with Alba, Ioan Gruffudd, Michael Chiklis, and Chris Evans met with bad responses, which led to Fox rebooting the franchise several years later. Josh Trank’s 2015 Fantastic Four, which was reportedly interfered with in the studio, received scathing reviews and a very low score at the box office. As a result, fans were relieved to learn that the rights to the Fantastic Four would revert to Marvel Studios through the Disney-Fox merger.
Blunt’s husband John Krasinski is fans’ first choice to play Reed Richards, aka Mr. Fantastic, in the MCU, and there is special interest in seeing the duo face off against one of Marvel’s most famous couples. After all, they’ve already shown how much they work together through A Quiet Place. Other than that, however, Blunt’s action chops and general talent would make her a great choice to play the MCU’s Invisible Woman. She’s almost played a Marvel superhero with Black Widow before, and maybe this part will fit better. Earlier this year, Blunt said she hadn’t spoken to Marvel about the role, but that could always change.
Marvel boss Kevin Feige has confirmed the impending arrival of the Fantastic Four at San Diego Comic-Con in 2019,. But since then there has been no update. This indicates that the Fantastic Four are still a long way off, as Marvel is likely focusing on the delayed start of Phase 4. It will be just a bit before Marvel announces their casting choices. But fans are certainly hoping Blunt will be included among them their candidates. The fans are behind her on this one, so the ball is in Marvel’s court.
