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.
