Scarlett Johansson is Pregnant But 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' is Fine
While we normally don't care about the personal lives of celebrities, it's different when something in the gossip arena effects the production of an anticipated film. In this case, E! News has learned that Scarlett Johansson is pregnant, and many are already wondering that what means for her recurring role as Black Widow in the Marvel cinematic universe, mainly for The Avengers: Age of Ultron already in production. Thankfully, the film won't be delayed and Johansson's role won't be reduced, but the production schedule will shift to fasttrack any scenes involving the actress so she can be finished before her due date gets closer.
Apparently Johansson is already a few months along in her pregnancy, so director Joss Whedon might have to get creative with the camera in order to hide the actress' baby bump. As for the action, it won't be hard to use a stunt double or stand-in for anything that Johansson shouldn't do in her condition. After Johansson finishes her promotional tour for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, she'll head overseas to start filming The Avengers: Age of Ultron on April 5th. Even if production had to be pushed back, it would be for a good reason, but everyone should be happy the studio can accommodate without delay. But don't count on seeing that standalone Black Widow film happening soon. Cool?
