Despite the fact that Scarlett Johansson hasn't actually confirmed her pregnancy officially, it's become quite obvious that she's with child, since her growing baby bump could be recently spotted at the “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” premiere.

The question now turns to the fact that the actress will have to start shooting soon for her next superhero movie “Avengers: The Age of Ultron.” What are the producers going to do about her growing belly when she's supposed to play on screen Black Widow, a character clad in a tight body suit?

The speculation from behind the scenes is that Scarlett is going to have her baby bump removed using CGI in the final film. The Sun reports that the actress will be made to wear a special green belt around her waist that will make this job easier for the special effects guys.

Apart from the CGI work, the production team has also pushed ahead her shooting schedule, in order to get Scarlett on film as early in her pregnancy as possible. Johansson is already at work in the UK, along actors Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr.

Speaking about how the pregnancy affected the new Abengers movie, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said that “we didn't change the script at all, which is sort of the most important thing for us in terms of the storyline. I think the goal is for us to sit here talking about the fact that you would never know that Black Widow was pregnant during the filming of the movie when you see the final version of Avengers 2.”
