Since Phase One of the Marvel Movie Universe began back in 2008, Marvel Studios has released seven hit comic book films, and they’ve shown no signs of stopping anytime soon. Phase Two began last year with Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World, and space adventure Guardians of the Galaxy releases in August, then this phase will finish off with the highly-anticipated The Avengers: Age of Ultron next year.

But up next in their ever-expanding timeline is Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which premieres across the globe in the next few weeks. Critics seeing an early screening of the movie have already taken to Twitter, calling it one of the strongest Marvel films released by the studio so far. Meanwhile, the film’s promotional tour has started as well, with Scarlett Johansson’s recently revealed pregnancy being a hot topic in the press.

In an interview with The Huffington Post, Johansson – who plays the superspy Black Widow – was asked about whether the recent news has affected her upcoming role in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, expected to begin filming in April, and the actress answered in a rather roundabout and cryptic way:

“Everything for ‘Avengers 2′ – we’re full steam ahead. We start shooting in three weeks and I’m stunt training and we’re good to go. You know, I think it’s something that is [laughing] hard to talk about, exactly. You know, trying to skirt around your question exactly [laughs] – and, you know, doing a poor job of it. But, you know, like I said, everything is exactly on schedule.”

While not exactly giving us any new information, Johansson does indirectly confirm reports that they’ll be fast-tracking her scenes, since apparently she’s still undergoing stunt training for an April start date.

What’s strange, though, is why the topic seems to be so hard for her to talk about, unless she simply just doesn’t want get into details about her personal life. Then again, maybe her reluctance stems from not wanting to reveal anything about her part in the film, which is said to be very big and will reveal the Black Widow’s backstory.

Regardless, it does appear that whatever difficulties her pregnancy may have initially brought to production, everything has already been worked out. Adding a bit more mystery to the matter, Johansson also said: “Everything is going just fine. The Black Widow always wins and will continue to.” Well, we sure hope so because we’re still expecting to see a Black Widow movie at some point.


Captain America: The Winter Soldier premieres in U.S. theaters on April 4th, 2014 and The Avengers: Age of Ultron is scheduled to be released on May 1st, 2015.

  1. I could stay up half the night tonight and watch this flick! I could always sleep on my job tomorrow (Welcome to Fantasy Island!)!

  2. this chick is a machine….

  3. I Would love to see a Black Widow/Hawkeye solo film.

  4. To think is 7 or so months, she will be officially be classified as a milf.

    • +1

  5. You should’ve attached Kevin Fiege’s comments on the matter on here as well. May want to update your article 😉

  6. This makes me wonder what kind of role Black Widow has in the movie. Shooting an action film while 5/6 months pregnant has to be dangerous right? I’m not woman so I don’t know too much about carrying a child but I’m sure they’re all adjusting so they can remain on schedule. But still, Black Widow’s story may have a twist to it.

  7. Such a hot woman, but her pregnancy has now ruled out the fantasy of her ever being mine now.

    • I’m sorry, dude. But oh man she was sooooo good 😉

  8. Isn’t she like 5 months pregnant? How is this possible?

    • I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say she had sex..

      • Fondue bro, fondue.

      • Yea, I was obviously asking how she got pregnant. Thank you for your very informative response. I can now rest, having been assured that sex causes pregnancy. Oh, thank you. Thank you so much.

        • Drat, I still had my bets on spontaneous generation.

          • Asexual reporduction*

  9. Take that, Stormberry.

  10. That guys was not suppose to spill his Hog Sauce in her Hog Hole, she even said as much in an interview that he spilled all in her hog hole..filled it all up she said.

    She decided to lather instead of purge, possibly a huge mistake
