Reading the articles about Scarlett's pregnancy is like taking a trip back to the 1950's. Have these people never heard of stunt doubles, body doubles and common ****ing sense?

When RDJ broke his ankle filming Iron Man 3, the production stopped for over a month and when it resumed many of his scenes were done by a stunt double. Downey's face was digitally imposed over the double's in post production in several sequences and it was so seamless that we would never have guessed if it hadn't been revealed. Hell, Chris Evans was digitally shrunk for the Skinny Steve Rogers sequences in CATFA. Who's to say that can't be done for Scarlett?

E! says that Marvel is going to film Scarlett's scenes first, which most sensible people already assumed would happen. The people claiming that this is the end of the world, or at least the end of Natasha Romanoff, are idiots.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
