That said, Blunt admitted she’s not the biggest fan of the superhero genre. Elsewhere in the interview, she dispelled a rumor that she and her husband, John Krasinski, would be playing the leads in the next “Fantastic Four” film, brushing it off as “fan-casting.” As a result, Stern asked Blunt if the superhero genre itself was “beneath” her.
“It’s not that it’s beneath me,” she responded. “I love ‘Iron Man’ and when I got offered Black Widow I was obsessed with ‘Iron Man.’ I wanted to work with Robert Downey Jr. — it would’ve been amazing. But I don’t know if superhero movies are for me. They’re not up my alley. I don’t like them. I really don’t.”
She continued: “It’s been exhausted. We are inundated — it’s not only all the movies, it’s the endless TV shows as well. It’s not to say that I’d never want to play [a superhero]. It would just have to be something so cool and a really cool character, and then I’d be interested.”
“A Quiet Place Part II” — a movie with zero superheroes in it — hits theaters May 28. Check out a clip from Blunt’s interview with Stern above.
