Emily Blunt explains to Collider why we shouldn’t expect to see her in a Marvel superhero movie: “I’ve been offered certain parts, [but] either through scheduling or it just not being quite the right thing for me I haven’t done them. But I think for me, being in some kind of superhero movie it just has to be the right time and the right thing. I’m not prepared to sign onto many movies at one time.” … “I just can’t [sign a 9-picture contract], I don’t wanna do that. I think the joy of the job for me is the about the unknown and “who knows what’s coming next” so to feel like I’m straight-jacketed in some way might be tricky. But at the same time, I love what they do and I think that they make amazing superhero movies. So if something came along that was right, I would definitely consider it.”

So it’s like completely different entities. The movie is not like anything I’ve done before.”
