Emily Blunt eyes Bond role

Emily Blunt
LONDON: Actress Emily Blunt is eager to play a female James Bond.

The British actress, who previously turned down roles in superhero films like "Captain America" and "Iron Man 2", admits she would be willing to consider something along similar lines provided it is a "challenge". She has her eyes on the iconic Bond role, currently being portrayed by Daniel Craig.

"Usually the female parts in a superhero film feel thankless: She’s the pill girlfriend while the guys are whizzing around saving the world," she told Vulture.com, reported femalefirst.co.uk.

"I didn’t do the other ones because the part wasn’t very good or the timing wasn’t right, but I’m open to any kind of genre if the part is great and fun and different and a challenge in some way," Blunt said.

"I would love to do a comic-book movie or a science-fiction film that would scare the bejesus out of me. Maybe I need to be James Bond!" she added.
