26Hurt – Emily Blunt turned down two roles

The Girl on the Train star Emily Blunt was offered the roles of both Peggy Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger and Black Widow in Iron Man 2. However, she turned them both down, because she didn’t agree with how the female leads were portrayed

in the movies.

Blunt could’ve brought so much to the MCU if the producers had just followed her guidance, expanded the female roles, and gotten her to play one of them. Then again, if she had MCU commitments, she might have been unable to shoot A Quiet Place and that wouldn’t be good for anyone.
