Scarlett 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."

Ben Affleck has been testing out his Batman voice on Jennifer Garner.
The star has been cast as The Caped Crusader alongside Superman in the sequel to Man of Steel and has been perfecting his superhero voice on his actress spouse.
When asked if she has heard him practiCing for his role by MTV News, Jennifer replied, "I hear every voice."
Ben has proved a controversial choice to play the DC Comics character, but Jennifer is confident he will bring something new to the famous role - most recently played by Christian Bale in The Dark Knight trilogy. "You know, I was excited for him [being cast]. I was excited because he had a real take on what he wanted to do, and you know, I have to say, my husband is a pretty great storyteller himself, and I'm excited to watch him do it," she added.
Whether you want to remember him for directing Argo or acting in Gigli, Ben Affleck has been chosen as the next actor to play Batman.
Taking the black cape and bat-eared costume from Christian Bale, who portrayed the Dark Knight in Christopher Nolan's recent Batman trilogy, Affleck will appear in the upcoming sequel to Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. Snyder released a statement announcing Affleck's casting:
"Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry [Cavill]'s Superman. He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retains the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne. I can't wait to work with him."
The film - tentatively titled Batman vs. Superman - is expected to be released July 2015 with production beginning in 2014.
