Brit thesp Emily Blunt has already been offered the role of Black Widow in Iron Man 2, but Twentieth Century Fox holds an option on her that may require participation in a new Gulliver's Travels flick instead.
Fox is negotiating with Blunt to join Jack Black in the Rob Letterman-directed re-imagining of the classic Jonathan Swift tale, Variety reported.

The studio got first-pass at Blunt's services as part of its deal with her for The Devil Wears Prada. Gulliver's Travels will shoot in the United Kingdom in late March; Iron Man 2 is expected to begin lensing in early April in Manhattan Beach, Calif.

So it appeared briefly that Marvel Entertainment would have to go back to the drawing board to find someone to play Natasha Romanoff, the Soviet superspy who moonlights as Black Widow, a beauty in a skintight black costume enhanced by high-tech weaponry. But by late Thursday (Jan. 29th), it looked like Fox and Blunt's reps were feeling more optimistic that she could do both projects.

In Gulliver's, Blunt will play a Lilliputian princess and Black's love interest.
