If she is five months already, I HATE HER!!

I did not look that good at five months. Hell, even three months! She's all glowy and stuff.

Ugh, stupid sexy Scarlett!

They'll just CGI her head onto a stunt body a la cap 1. No muss no fuss.

Seriously though, I'd be okay with them cutting down her scenes and giving them to SW or (secret guest star!) Carol Danvers. But it probably won't be a big issue. Depends on how far along she is I guess.

Edit: five months?!? Now that could be a problem.

Speaking of SW anyone else wonder if she may not be able to control her powers only when she`s anger or mad

If, if they do have to cut some things out with Black Widow, I want ScarJo to push really hard for a solo movie. I mean, she's the most visible female character in the franchise. ScarJo deserves it!

The point is, there are ways around this. Considering that Whedon's has said that BW will have a big/key role in AOU, I don't see him drastically altering his script just because of this. He'll get creative.
More likely, Scarlett will do the talking scenes and they will CG her face on a stunt double for 95% of all action. They did similar things in other movies. Blade: Trinity comes to mind. Wesley Snipes only went on set for voice work, and stunt people very often had to even be used for his close up shots (where they CGed his face on the double) because Snipes was having major issues with Goyer and the direction of the movie/franchise.

Well I just wish her the best in giving birth to a healthy baby later on in the Summer.

And I do hope that they try to be as extra careful as they can when filming her. Even without action, I've heard of several cases where the stress of just "filming" wouldn't be the healthiest thing for a pregnant person during the later part of their pregnancy term

IF, for some reason, her scenes need to be trimmed down, I hope they give some of it to the Scarlet Witch to help further establish her as the newest female lead that has been added to the MCU.

This is my bias talking, but I'd much rather see a Ms. Marvel film first. I'm hoping she gets introduced in AoU and then given a starring role in a Phase 3 movie.

And in that case, Wesley was right about his lack of screen time when he was playing the title character. Trinity suffered for it and audiences hated it.

Also, Downey was injured during Iron Man 3 and they just CGId his face onto his stunt double. I didn't even notice.

Apparently Black Widow's role won't be reduced, Joss might have known for a while and Scarlett's scenes will be fast tracked.

Anyway, I think we'd all like to see 4 Avengers and a Baby. Now THAT would make $2 billion.

Movieweb's article on ScarJo's pregnancy is just awful! "Scarlett's pregnantWILL THEY KILL BLACK WIDOW IN THE AVENGERS SEQUEL?!"

Because pregnancy = woman incapable of working. Also, she may just quit acting altogether because MOTHERHOOD. Not that there's anything wrong with that, I'm a stay-at-home mom right now (not necessarily by choice, but whatever) but they just freakin' immediately go there and it's so stupid and infuriating!

Practically everyone here has already given suggestions far more creative and 100% less sexist than some of the "professional" commentary I've seen about her pregnancy. Ugh! If women can run marathons/lift weights/Crossfit train while into their third trimester, Scarlett can handle an effin' movie.

Don't think that's from the Oscars. IMDb has that red carpet as from November 2013 'Her' premiere at a Rome Film festival

They'll probably just shoot her scenes first. It's not a problem.

Yeah, I mean they digitally removed Chris Evans from the beginning of a scene and pasted RDJ's face on another actor. I think a little movie magic can solve ScarJo's baby bump. It's not like a sitcom where they'll awkwardly place her behind a stack of boxes or something. The scheduling part is the least of their problems - shoot her stuff first. Done.

Exactly, and if there *is* some stuff that can't be shot first or they're having a harder time working around the baby-bump... in theory there's always the possibility of pickups later in the year after she has the baby

Some of the misogyny I'm seeing elsewhere on other message boards regarding this (along the lines of what Suzanne linked to) is just aggravating. I've seen a lot of people calling her a "selfish _____" (insert your choice of derogatory 4 or 5 letter word here, I've seen a lot of variety) for daring to get pregnant and 'putting the Avengers film at risk!'

It's nature, it happens, sometimes it happens unexpectedly despite precautions. Movies and tv shows have been finding ways to work around pregnancies (both planned and unplanned) for a long time, and as technology has improved, so have those methods of working around it.

I really don't think there's much to worry about.

They won't just have to digitally remove her baby bump though. If she puts on weight around her face and arms, they'll have to slim her down too. Some women put on a lot more weight than others, whereas some women look practically the same but only with a bump.

Well now, that's really making me want Whedon to write in her pregnancy

Every time some sexist article/comment pops up, I'd just tell them about the woman who's 7.5-8 months pregnant who's still crossfit training and lifting. Or the woman who gave birth in the middle of a marathon she was running.

We're such delicate flowers that can't handle big budget action movies. Oh, the stupidity, it abounds!

ETA: I agree about a mix of using body doubles/VFX to make ScarJo look Black Widow-ish. If they can make Chris Evans look like a 90-lbs. weakling, they can do the same for ScarJo.

The effect on the film will be minimal. The neckbeards just want something to mope about in their basements. Screw them.

A lot of people who make the "selfish" argument (god that's so stupid) seem to think that this was a planned pregnancy. I don't know for sure, but I'd guess that it wasn't. What women would want to deliberately become pregnant right as she was about to do a big-budget movie that requires a lot of physically strenuous action scenes. My guess is that this just happened.

It's likely that Joss knows that Scar Jo was pregnant before it was announced.

Whedon has know idea, even now. Feige is keeping it hidden from him, running around Marvel Studios in Basil Fawlty mode, berating the staff with "Don't mention the baby! [war]", and stealing Whedon's newspapers.

They'll incorporate the pregnancy into the plot. The next infinity gem they unveil will impregnate her, and she'll give birth to the MCU's version of Adam Warlock...

*cue Thanos b*tching that he has no idea what to do with a kid!*

*cue Thanos saying he's too old for this !#$%*

I am really, REALLY falling in love with this 'pregnant Black Widow kicks butt' idea. I think some clown needs to find out the hard way that her condition doesn't have any effect on her trigger finger. I think this kinda HAS to happen, now.

Good call, which makes heaps more sense.

TMZ has a photo from a few days ago. Yeah, I don't see her shooting right now. That said, if she's been preggo for five months, that means Whedon already knew when he was writing.

Some people believe that if a woman gets pregnant, she bears sole responsibility and carries all fault for any inconvenience it causes.
