Eliza Dushku, who stars in Joss Whedon’s new TV show, Dollhouse, wants to be Black Widow in an Iron Man movie. Dushku was on The Howard Stern Show on SiriusXM satellite radio this morning and talk turned to Spider-Man. Stern is a huge comic book fan and brought up how Dushku helped Toby Maguire get the Peter Parker role in the Spider-Man movie. Dushku admitted that she was in an elaborate Sam Raimi-filmed test to show Maguire as an action hero. Dushku went on to say that she would be perfect for the Black Widow in one of the Iron Man movie sequels because she just learned some Russian for Dollhouse. She also said she’s known for action roles and would love to work with Robert Downey Jr.
Of course she would fit nicely into the Black Widow leather outfit.
Hey, pretty cool that Dushku (pronounce the “Dush” like “push”, thank you very much) knows that the Black Widow character fits into the Iron Man world and that the Widow is a Russian spy.
Hey, Jon Favereau! How about it?
Fans of Dushku and Whedon should check out Dollhouse premiering Friday, February 13 at 9pm.
