Johansson pregnant with first child; Avengers: Age of Ultron changed?

News
The Avengers star Scarlett Johansson, who plays SHIELD agent Natasha 'Black Widow' Romanoff in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is expecting her first child with journalist fiancé Romaine Dauriac.

Johansson, previously married to Green Lantern star Ryan Reynolds, is currently five months pregnant, which may cause problems as production for Avengers: Age of Ultron has already begun and the Black Widow has a more prominent role in the sequel.

It is currently unclear whether director Joss Whedon will change Johansson's role or alter the story to accommodate her pregnancy but according to sources, the scenes featuring the Black Widow will be "fast-tracked".
