Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau told E! that Emily Blunt is definitely out of the superhero sequel and that Mickey Rourke hasn't been officially cast but is a fan, according to a report on Playlist.

Favreau made no mention of Scarlett Johansson, who is rumored to be in line for Blunt's role of Russian superspy Natasha Romanoff, who doubles as Black Widow.

On E!'s post-Oscar show, Favreau reportedly said that Fox exercised its [Gulliver's Travels] option on Blunt, preventing her from appearing in Iron Man 2.
