Best Female Super Heros

Despite pregnancy reports, Scarlett Johansson confirmed that there will be no shooting delays on “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

The actress will reprise her physically demanding role as Black Widow when the superhero pic begins filming in less than a month.

“We’re full steam ahead,” she told The Huffington Post on Wednesday. “We start shooting in three weeks and I’m stunt training and we’re good to go. … Everything is exactly on schedule.”

Although neither Johansson nor her fiance, journalist Romain Dauriac, have confirmed the pregnancy, Kevin Feige, Marvel’s president of production, has.

“Well, my first reaction was I was very happy for her and very excited for her,” he told Collider. “My second reaction was we’ve got to move some pieces on the chess board around schedule-wise. But we didn’t change the script at all, which is sort of the most important things for us in terms of the storyline.”

The “Avengers” sequel opens May 1, 2015.

Johansson will next be seen in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” which bows April 4.
