Actress Scarlett Johansson has hinted at her reported pregnancy in a new interview, insisting production is still on schedule for the new The Avengers film.

Reports suggesting star is expecting her first child with fiance Romain Dauriac surfaced earlier this month (Mar14), but the Lost in Translation beauty has yet to confirm the baby news.

However, she came pretty close during a recent interview after she was asked if the production schedule for The Avengers sequel had been affected by events in her personal life.

Johansson responded, "Everything for Avengers 2 - we're full steam ahead. We start shooting in three weeks and I'm stunt training and we're good to go."

She added, "I think it's something that is hard to talk about, exactly. You know, trying to skirt around your question exactly - and... doing a poor job of it. But... like I said, everything is exactly on schedule."

Avengers: Age of Ultron, which also stars Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., and Samuel L. Jackson, is set to hit theatres next year (15).
