In an interview on “The Howard Stern Show,” Emily Blunt had dismissed the rumors of her and John Krasinki being in a Marvel movie. This was in May 2021, after the announcement of Marvel making a new Fantastic Four movie. Fans also wanted the two to play the role of Sue Storm and Richard Reeds. But the actress denied it on the show, saying, “That is fan-casting. No one has received a phone call. That’s just people saying, ‘Wouldn’t that be great?'”

She reasoned her statement by saying, “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 to my alley. I don’t like them. I really don’t.”
