Emily Blunt’s Super Awesomeness Scores Her An Avengers 2 Role As Ms. Marvel!

emily blunt mrs marvel avengers 2 casting rumors luther ruth wilson

Absolutely ah-mazing marvelous!!

Emily Blunt is reportedly set to play Ms. Marvel in the forthcoming Avengers sequel!

How adorbzies!!!

We still remember back when the Looper star was teaching Anne Hathaway how to dress in a slightly less embarrassing fashion while getting lattes for Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada!

This role could be GREAT for her!!

Ms. Marvel is super strong, fast, and she can fly!! We can’t think of a single reason why John Krasinski‘s wifey would decline!!

It’s not exactly a done deal, however. Luther star Ruth Wilson is also quietly in the running!

Regardless of who Joss Whedon gives the part to, we are triple-totes excited for an Avengers sequel!
