HAS MARVEL SIGNED EMILY BLUNT TO PLAY 'CAPTAIN MARVEL'? JACK REYNOR, NICHOLAS HOULT, JACK HUSTON OR TARON EGERTON FOR THE LEAD IN 'ROBIN HOOD: ORIGINS'?

HAS EMILY BLUNT BEEN
SIGNED FOR 'CAPTAIN MARVEL'?
Over the years she was often mentioned for various superhero roles, and was even supposed to be Black Widow instead of Scarlett Johansson, but it seems that now Marvel has firmly set their eyes on Emily Blunt as CAPTAIN MARVEL! The latest rumours around the web state that although they are still looking for a director (there were talks that Angelina Jolie was offered the helm), the studio has already signed Blunt to play in the movie scheduled for 2018! Carol Danvers is a security chief who becomes CAPTAIN MARVEL after surviving an explosion which leaves her with superhuman strength and the ability to fly! Charlize Theron was also mentioned for the role.

NICHOLAS HOULT, JACK REYNOR, JACK HUSTON IN THE RUN
And another intriguing casting mystery today is who will take the coveted lead role in one of the numerous Robin Hood movie projects that are being planned in Hollywood. 'Deadline' reports today that Lionsgate is already choosing a young lead for their ROBIN HOOD: ORIGINS in order to beat all other rivals in the production race which includes for other projects in different studios all eyeing the green clad vigilante. Apparently, the list of potential actors currently includes British actor Taron Egerton (KINGSMAN) alongside fellow British stars Nicholas Hoult (X MEN, JACK THE GIANT SLAYER) and Jack Huston (who has already been chosen as the new BEN HUR) and charismatic TRANSFORMER's Jack Reynor (Deadline says that he already had a successful meeting with the director Otto Bathurst). Sherwood forest could see THE MAZE RUNNER's Dylan O’Brian too wearing green tights.

THE SHER- WOOD HOOD 
 The revisionist take on the famous medieval legend ROBIN HOOD: ORIGINS will see Robin Hood returning from fighting in The Crusades and finding that Sherwood Forest is rife with corruption and evil. He forms a band of outlaws and they take matters into their own hands. At the same time Disney's rival movie NOTTINGHAM & HOOD is said to be in the epic adventure potential tentpole vein. The shooting of the Lionsgate's movie should start early next year before all other rival films.
