There is no question of debate that Scarlett Johansson is the best Black Widow Marvel Cinematic Universe has ever seen. The international actress made her debut as Natasha Romanoff in Iron Man 2. While Scarlett proved that she was the perfect pick, she wasn't Marvel Studios' first pick. MCU Fans would remember Scarlett did meet the superhero movie studio and discuss the role of Black Widow. However, The Quiet Place star Emily Blunt was roped in to play Black Widow in the universe. 

Scarlett recalled the rejection call with Vanity Fair and revealed she was visiting her then-husband, Ryan Reynolds, when she received the unfortunate rejection call. "I was visiting my husband at the time at work. I remember being in a random hotel somewhere. And I got that call and I was so, so disappointed. And then that was it. You know, life went on. I mean, I’ve certainly had enough experience of rejection," she recalled. 

However, Emily had to forgo the role due to scheduling problems. “I was super excited about it. And I met with Jon (Favreau) again, and we had a funny conversation about how he had not cast me. But I was excited. I was so stoked," she shared. 

A decade later, Scarlett's Black Widow has become a fan favourite character. Having featured in several MCU movies, including Iron Man 2, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, Scarlett could soon end her run with MCU with Black Widow. The standalone movie will explore the mysterious world of the superhero. Scarlett teased the movie in the interview.
