Super sexy Emily Blunt is rumored to be in the running for the role of Carol Danvers/Ms. Marvel in The Avengers 2. Once a C-lister in the Marvel Universe, Ms. Marvel has been a major player since the “House of M” storyline. She has been a big part of the New Avengers and Mighty Avengers series. Sadly, she has gotten rid of her ridiculous swimsuit-like costume to coincide with her name change to Captain Marvel. As for Blunt, here’s more from iO9:
Emily Blunt, who famously missed out on the role of Black Widow in Iron Man 2 — insofar as any Emily Blunt casting decision is really capable of attaining fame — is reportedly back in contention for a major role. Specifically, she is rumored to be one of two main contenders for the part of Carol Danvers, better known as Ms. Marvel.
I’m a big fan of Blunt. She’s beautiful, smart, talented, and environmentally conscious. That said, I haven’t seen any of her performances where she hasn’t used her native British accent. Carol Danvers is very much an “american pie” type of character. She’s a former United States Air Force officer that has also served with S.H.I.E.L.D. It would be strange to hear her with a British accent. Blunt certainly has the presence for the character and for all I know she has a dynamite American accent from her extensive studies. However, I’m sure that that average male moviegoer doesn’t give a rat’s ass since she’s so pretty.
What do you think of the possibility of Emily Blunt playing Carol Danvers/Ms. Marvel? Me likey.

I take it u havent seen looper yet huh.
I haven’t. The screening was on my birthday and I was busy drinking beers. Ha!
U should see it and blunt is sans british accent.
I definitely want to see, but I’m not in a rush. I won’t pay for a theater ticket, but will gladly watch it when it’s digital. I’ve heard lots of great things about it.
Tell me more about her Yankee accent. Think she can pass for a USAF girl?
Kinda disappointed that ur waiting for “digital download”. I believe that any comic nerd/geek will love this movie but to each their own. Well she didnt have a standard american one. The movie is based in kansas so she had kind of country one but it was a very good one because like you, i had never saw her in a movie without her native accent. So i had to do a double take and still imdb the movie to make sure it was her. So i believe she will do a very good job depending how whedon will want her accent. She’s already ahead of bale because she didnt have a lith-p with her american accent
I’m sure I’ll love it too. It seems headier than most time travel movies. I seriously buy movies I like on iTunes or Amazon to keep them in a digital locker. If it’s something I really like and want to see special features for then I’ll buy the disc.

I’ve noticed that there are quite a few British and Australian actors that seem to pull off the American accent just fine.
Fun Fact: Carol Danvers was the head of S.H.I.E.L.D for about a year or two during Nick Fury’s absence and subsequent departure in the Marvel Ultimate universe. Fortunately (or unfortunately), Fury recently got his old job back. Oddly enough, Danvers does not have any powers in the Ultimates universe… yet.
Are u talking about the current ultimates volume?
Yes, I am, but I’m about one year behind, so if something happened with Danvers since she got fired from S.H.I.E.L.D., please don’t tell me, I want to read it for myself when I have enough time to catch up on the Ultimates story line and get up-to-date.
She got bitten by a radioactive ladybug and now she’s Ultimate Ladybug.
You know, with all the garbage coming out of the Ultimates universe, that kind of premise would not only be believable, but actually a huge step up from their current writing.
Im not sure whats happened to her since ive last read issue 12. I was just asking to see when ultimates vol u were referring to.
I’m not familiar with Ms. Marvel or the House of M storyline (although I always seem to hear about it), but I’d be glad to watch Emily Blunt in Ms. Marvel’s outfit.
