Emily Blunt
turned down a role in
upcoming blockbuster
The First Avenger:
Captain America
because she was
reluctant to commit to
a long-term franchise,
World Entertainment
News reports
April 27th, 2010.
.
.
The actress was offered
the chance to play Captain
America’s love interest Peggy
Carter in the forthcoming
comic book adaptation,
but rejected the role
because she wants to
remain open to other projects.

She tells MTV.com,
“I’m a big supporter of
(director) Joe Johnston and
I think that Captain America
is going to be really fun and
I gather that the story
is really interesting.”

“It just wasn’t what
I wanted to do next,
to be honest.

“There’s definitely a high
commitment level and I’m
not someone who likes to
plan too much ahead.

That would also be an
issue for me as well.”

She adds,
“I don’t tend to be
fatalistic about these things.
I think for me the job always
has to be the right thing
at the right time.”

“Neither of them
happened to be that.”

Blunt’s fiance John Krasinski
was the front runner to play
Captain America but the role
eventually went to Fantastic
