Emily Blunt Discusses Her Take on Mary Poppins and Action Movies
Emily Blunt is currently doing press for A Quiet Place, but of course, people are asking about her other films. Her next big movie that I’m aware of is Mary Poppins Returns which is due later this year. Variety recently asked her a few questions about that film including what her take and inspiration for the film was and if she reached out to Julie Andrews who played the character back in 1964. Here are her responses with the questions:
I think it’s great that Blunt tried to make Mary Poppins her own instead of trying to follow in Andrews’ footsteps. After all, Blunt is good, but she’s no Andrews. Of course, outside of Mary Poppins Returns, Blunt was asked if she wanted to be in a superhero film and if she enjoyed doing action films like Edge of Tomorrow.
I was genuinely surprised at her response to the superhero question simply because her husband John Krasinski seemed pretty excited at the hypothetical of playing Reed Richards with Blunt as Sue Storm. Of course, we know that they are working on a sequel to Edge of Tomorrow, so I’m sure we’ll see Blunt return for that film. Do you want to see Blunt as Sue Storm or a different superhero? Are you excited for her take on Mary Poppins?
Mary Poppins Returns will hit theaters December 25, 2018.
