Ever since Marvel announced their massive Phase Three slate back in October, there has been plenty of speculation about who will play Captain Marvel. A number of actresses have been rumored for the role, such as Vikings star Katheryn Winnick, Jessica Chastain, Katee Sackhoff and Emily Blunt. As of now, the project doesn't even have a director attached yet, but Marvel did bring on Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) to write the script. Today, a new rumor surfaced from Meet the Movie Press, that claims Emily Blunt has in fact signed on as Captain Marvel.
This hasn't been confirmed yet, but Heroic Hollywood's El Mayimbe believes that Marvel is "aiming higher" for the role of Carol Danvers. Back in April, a report surfaced that the studio wanted Charlize Theron to star as Captain Marvel, with Angelina Jolie eyed to direct. The report was never confirmed, but there was another rumor that surfaced in February that claimed the studio offered Angelina Jolie a whopping $20 million to direct the superhero movie.Read More
The loss of its director is certainly not slowing down the prequel The Huntsman. A follow up to the 2012 fairy tale adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, this next chapter is lining up Emily Blunt to star as the main villain. While yesterday's report claimed that Charlize Theron was expected to reprise her role as the evil Ravenna, that may no longer be the case.
Frank Darabont left the project earlier in the week, with both the director and Universal Pictures citing 'creative differences'. It is believed that the studio already has a replacement directed waiting in the wings. We should hear an announcement sometime next week. Universal intends on keeping its already announced April 22, 2016 release date.Read More
Last month, Vikings star Katheryn Winnick expressed her interest in the role, and Jessica Chastain also confirmed last month that she has met with Marvel, leading fans to speculate that she has been in talks for Captain Marvel. No screenwriter or director has been attached to the project yet, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed in August that the project was in higher demand than Iron Man 4 and Avengers 3.
If Emily Blunt did sign on, it would be her first superhero role, but the actress has already proven her action chops in this summer's Edge of Tomorrow. Do you think Emily Blunt is the right fit for Captain Marvel? Chime in with your thoughts below.Read More
Emily Blunt will join Rupert Friend in Barton & Charlie & Checco & Bill, a romantic road trip comedy that will serve as Rupert Friend's directorial debut.
Rupert Friend also wrote the script, which he is producing alongside Aaron L. Gilbert of Bron Studios and Margot Hand. The story follows a downtrodden con-artist who teams up with a woman to show her the tricks of his trade. The woman turns the tables on her teacher, and the two embark on a long road trip, picking up a 10-year old Mexican boy along the way. They soon find themselves pursued by a Confederate newspaper mogul named Bill.Read More
Even though production is already under way on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, that doesn't mean casting is over, by any means, although it isn't quite clear what characters have yet to be cast. Two new unconfirmed rumors have surfaced today that indicate Edge of Tomorrow star Emily Blunt is close to signing on for an unspecified role, while beloved Batman character Jim Gordon is reportedly featured in the big screen adventure.
If Emily Blunt does sign on, it will be her first role in a superhero movie, although she was set to play Black Widow in Iron Man 2. Scheduling conflicts with Gulliver's Travels ultimately forced her to bow out, paving the way for Scarlett Johansson to take the role.Read More

Warner Bros. Pictures has released four clips from Doug Liman's sci-fi thriller Edge of Tomorrow. The project is set in a near future where an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault. Major William Cage (Tom Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop-forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again...and again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy. Get a glimpse at this latest footage and catch the film in theaters June 6th.
