Pregnant Scarlett Johansson Still in Avengers Sequel

pregwidowScarlett Johansson is reportedly pregnant with her first child with her French journalist fiancé, Romain Dauriac, but that doesn’t mean the Black Widow will have sit out the action in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron — and the role is not being recast.

Instead, Scarlett’s scenes are being moved to the beginning of production, so she can complete her filming well before her baby is due, in August. Word is Scarlett will report to the set for returning director Joss Whedon on April 5 — right after she finishes her press duties for Widow’s appearance in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

More ‘Winter Soldier’ Goodies: TV Spot & Posters!

capwinterposwintersoldWe’re less than a month away from the April 4 opening day for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and anticipation is building.

Marvel Studios has released a poster of The Winter Soldier and a new one of Cap that looks a lot more like a comic book cover than the previous images — well, except for Chris Evans not wearing his Cap mask! In his own comic book and in Avengers, Captain America never goes into battle without his mask, But it’s always different in the movies: The studios all want to see the face of the actor they hired to wear the costume.

Take a look at this great new trailer (the third) that features more new footage — including the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie) in battle, Cap vs. the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), and more on that amazing helicarrier crash!

I Knew It! Scarlett Johansson Is Not of This Earth!

There’s this weird indie movie called Under the Skin that made the rounds at film festivals in the latter part of last year that tended to polarize a lot of critics into “Love it!” and “Hate it!” camps. I’ve been keeping my eye on it, and it finally headed for the USA.

In the creepy flick, Scarlett Johansson plays an alien sent to Earth to assume female form and seduce men. (I know, good thinking on the aliens’ part, right?) She targets hitchhikers in Glasgow, Scotland, and environs.

The One Super Bowl Commercial I Want to See

Welcome to Super Bowl Sunday, one of the most sacred days of the year in America! The big game will pit the Denver Broncos against the Seattle Seahawks — the No. 1 offense against the No. 1 defense; the irresistible force vs. the immovable object. Who will win? I hope it’s the Broncos, but I won’t be too broken up if it’s the Seahawks, because, without my New York Football Giants playing… who really cares? (Even if it is in the Jints’ home stadium.)

What I do care about is Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Marvel Studios has promised a bombastic ad during the game this evening — I hope the video can deliver. Here is a 16-second teaser… a commercial for the commercial, if you will. Enjoy!

Cap, Widow, Falcon, Nick and the Winter Soldier will all be there when C:TWS opens on April 4.
