Emily Blunt is the latest star to be linked to the upcoming Batman V Superman movie.

The British actress, who can currently be seen in cinemas alongside Tom Cruise in Edge Of Tomorrow, is tipped for a part in Dawn Of Justice.

She is said to be close to signing up for the film.

Details of the role aren't known, but some sites have speculated that Emily, 31, could be up for the part of Catwoman.

The actress was previously said to be in the frame for roles in Iron Man 2 and Captain America: The First Avenger but would be making her superhero film debut if she does sign up for the Man Of Steel sequel.
