Emily Blunt could be going from “Prada” to “Iron.”
The “Devil Wears Prada” star is the frontrunner for the role of the Black Widow in “Iron Man 2,” Variety reported.

The Black Widow is a sexy Soviet spy – a role that could dovetail with reports that Mickey Rourke is in talks to play Russian villain the Crimson Dynamo.
Blunt currently has three films awaiting release — the comedy “The Great Buck Howard” alongside Tom Hanks and John Malkovich; the horror period piece “The Wolfman” opposite Benicio del Toro and Anthony Hopkins; and co-starring with Amy Adams in the comedy “Sunshine Cleaning.”
“Iron Man 2” is due in summer 2010.
