After keeping a low profile, pregnant Scarlett Johansson was spotted going on a walk with her fiancé, Romain Dauriac, in London. Wearing a gray hoodie paired with leggings, the 29-year-old Avengers star looks to be well into her second or third trimester.
Johansson, who was previously married to Ryan Reynolds, told WSJ magazine that her life with Dauriac is “quiet.”
She also opened up about balancing work and family life. “I know that with that there will be some sacrifices,” she confessed. “There must exist a world in which I can balance those things, be able to raise a family and still make a film a year, or work on my own, develop things, do theater. I want to be able to have it all. Selfishly.”
When previously asked about the lack of female superhero movies, Marvel chief Kevin Feige has remained diplomatic, yet non-committal. During the press tour for ‘Thor 2,’ Feige’s comments were “I’m not sure when that will be” and “we’ll see what happens.” Not exactly a ringing endorsement for a female-led Marvel movie. Apparently, things have changed over the past few months and now Feige, when asked specifically about Scarlett Johansson‘s Black Widow, said that they are actively developing her own solo movie.
Feige was speaking to Total Film about Captain America: The Winter Soldier and how that film gives us Black Widow’s biggest role yet and how the upcoming The Avengers: Age Of Ultron will give us details about her past. He then added:
We learn more about her past and learn more about where she came from and how she became in that film. The notion of exploring that even further in her own film would be great, and we have some development work with that.
Feige didn’t exactly make a big splashy announcement about a future film, but it’s good to hear that it’s something they want to do. The Black Widow character is almost perfect for a ‘Bourne Identity’ style spinoff and an easy transition to the first female-driven Marvel movie. Hopefully the success of that movie would open up even more doors for characters like Ms. Marvel and, even in the DC universe, Wonder Woman herself.
Considering the Phase 3 movies are all but set, we don’t see a Black Widow movie happening in the immediate future, but if Marvel really is looking at releasing four movies a year (one per quarter), they’re going to need to start thinking outside of the “Phase 3? box and scheduling some spinoffs.
We had a blast with ‘Captain America 2‘ and it’s the kind of film that we can see ourselves watching over and over again. And, what better way to do that than with the ‘Captain America 2? DVD, Blu-ray and Steelbook Blu-Ray, which has officially been announced for a September 9 release date and will include an audio commentary, never-before-seen deleted scenes, a gag reel and more.
The ‘Captain America 2? disc will be available in a 3D Blu-ray combo pack (which includes a copy of the movie on 3-D Blu-ray, a regular Blu-ray disc and a digital copy of the film that you can download via iTunes), standard Blu-ray and single-disc DVD.
As is par for the course for the Marvel DVDs, there will be a ton of special features, including making-of featurettes, an audio commentary with directors Joe and Anthony Russo, deleted scenes, bloopers, and much more.
UPDATE: Sorry, Marvel fans. EW reports that there will be no Marvel One-Shot short film on the ‘Captain America 2? DVD and Blu-ray releases. A surprising move to say the least, as the last few release have scene ‘All Hail the King’ (on ‘Thor: The Dark World’), ‘Agent Carter’ (on ‘Iron Man 3?) and ‘Item 47? (on ‘The Avengers’). No word yet on whether this means Marvel will discontinue them altogether or are simply waiting for the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ DVD, Blu-ray release.
Edit: The UK will be getting Captain America 2 on Steelbook/Blu-Ray & DVD on August 18, 2014 and online download from August 11th.
Scarlett Johansson is apparently well-equipped to play Dolly Parton in a movie.
Since the country music singer is a legend in the industry, it’s was really only a matter of time before someone decided to tell her life story on the big screen. In addition to a feature film, Parton is also reportedly working on a musical. However, it’s unclear who will end up playing Dolly when the cameras finally start to roll.
The first poster for Scarlett’s upcoming movie Lucy is now out as well as the release date being moved up from August to July 25 for the USA. No date yet for the rest of the world.
A new trailer for scarlett’s upcoming movie Lucy, has just been post online. There are a lot of new clips you can see in this one. I just made some hight-res trailer screen caps of all her parts. The movie will opens in theater’s some time in August. Enjoy!

Baby wants ice cream! While enjoying downtime at the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris, France on Sunday, May 4, pregnant Scarlett Johansson was spotted noshing on an ice cream cone with fiancé Romain Dauriac.
The Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier star, 29, went casual in black leggings and tennis shoes with a tie-dyed top and army-green jacket. The New York native recently ended a press tour for the well-received Marvel sequel, and began filming The Avengers: Age of Ultron, which hits theaters May 1, 2015.
Johansson’s journalist fiancé is French, which she recently joked to Vanity Fair was why he is “overly into his emotions.” Together the couple are preparing for the arrival of their first child, which came as a “welcome surprise,” a source told Us in March.
“There must exist a world in which I can balance those things, be able to raise a family and still make a film a year, or work on my own, develop things, do theater,” Johansson told WSJ magazine in April. “I want to be able to have it all. Selfishly.”
Scarlett Johansson might be expecting her first child, but Black Widow won’t be showing any signs of pregnancy.
The gorgeous star is said due to give birth to her and Roman Dauriac’s baby in August, which threw up a few issues for the filming of Avengers: Winter Soldier.
However, The Sun reports that Scarlett will be able to perform as she is, with her growing baby bump being edited out in post-production.
According to the newspaper, the actress will be wearing a high-tech suit with a green band around her waist which will allow the special effects team to remove any signs of her pregnancy.
Meanwhile, it is said that director Joss Whedon has no intention of letting her off easily, still expecting her to be part of the movie’s fight scenes.
Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Feige seemingly confirmed Scarlett’s maternity in an interview about the film last month and suggesting everything will still go to plan.
Speaking about the mum-to-be last month, he said: “Well my first reaction was I was very happy for her and very excited for her.
“My second reaction was we’ve got to move some pieces on the chess board around schedule-wise. But we didn’t change the script at all, which is sort of the most important things for us in terms of the storyline.”
