Scarlett Johansson and Romain DauriacScarlett Johansson's pregnancy could delay filming for The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The 29-year-old actress is reportedly due to welcome her first child into the world with her fiance Romain Dauriac, 31, in August, but shooting for her upcoming movie, which kicks off on April 5, may need to be re-scheduled to fit around her growing baby bump.

The blonde beauty plays Natasha Romanoff in the superhero film, which sees her squeeze into a figure-hugging catsuit and bosses are reportedly keen to shoot her scenes as soon as possible. "Shooting for the superhero sequel will need a bit of rearranging. They're going to fast-track her scenes," a source said.

Meanwhile, Scarlett and Romain's baby news comes just six months after the French creative agency boss popped the question with a vintage Art Deco ring last year. However, the Captain America: The Winter Soldier star has previously said she and Romain don't want to "rush" tying the knot as "being engaged is an exciting time to enjoy and to really savor."

Jennifer LawrenceJennifer Lawrence is going to take a year's break from acting.

The 23-year-old actress has made eight films in the past 12 months, and Harvey Weinstein - who worked with her on Silver Linings Playbook - has revealed she is about to have a much earned "rest."

"She's going to have a long break for a year where she won't do anything. It's been non-stop for her and she deserves a rest," he told The Sun.

The famed producer also defended her decision to not attend the BAFTAs ceremony, despite receiving an award for her role in American Hustle. "Jennifer is too nice and will do people favors and agrees to do a movie like American Hustle when she could have had a rest. She signed on to do Hunger Games when she was young and wouldn't have realized how much it would dominate her life. But she's a professional and always will be," the famed producer explained.

Bette Midler+ Seth Green - whom you may recall from Robot Chicken, Family Guy, and Austin Powers - gives Larry King a compelling explanation as to why Ben Affleck is a poor choice as Batman in the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman film.

+ Bette Midler is set to appear at this Oscars this year - additionally, she'll be singing for the first time!

+ Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller is in talks with Warner Bros. and Barry Sonnenfeld to adapt the short-lived (and much-loved!) ABC series into a musical for Broadway, which would star Pushing Daisies alum Kristin Chenoweth. Fuller says that he is also contemplating a film adaptation.

+ Michael Patrick King, who wrote for the Sex and the City series and directed both film adaptations, says that there's one more story to tell for Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda, and Samantha - greatly hinting at the possibility of a third film.
