Scarlett Johansson, A.K.A. the Black Widow from the Marvel movies, A.K.A. the woman from “Lost in Translation,” is pregnant with her second child. The news comes just as ScarJo celebrates the opening of what is due to be one of the biggest box office successes of all time, the stand alone “Black Widow” movie.
Page Six reported insiders as saying “Scarlett is actually due soon, I know she and Colin are thrilled.” And, “Scarlett is pregnant but has been keeping it very quiet. She has been keeping a very low profile.”
The baby – no gender has yet been revealed, nor an expected due date – will also be the child of Colin Jost. Scarlet is the 39 year old Jost’s first wife and this will be his first child.
Let’s hope for Scarlett Johansson that in marriage three times really is a charm. She was first married to fellow super hero movie star Ryan Reynolds for just three years. Reynolds starred as the D.C. comic hero Green Lantern in the big movie flop of 2011. But then he found success as the Marvel hero Deadpool. Comic book geeks the world over would love to see a crossover movie starring Reynolds and ScarJo as their respective characters.
Scarlett Johansson had her first child, daughter Rose Dorothy Dauriac, in 2014. ScarJo had Rose with her second husband, French ad exec Romain Dauriac. That marriage also lasted only three years. Scarlett married Colin Jost in 2020 after a long courtship. Jost is a writer and host of the weekend news segment for Saturday Night Live. The couple met during one of Ms. Johansson’s many appearances on the show and began dating in 2017.

People the world over are itching to get out of their homes after a year and a half of isolating because of the Covid- 19 pandemic. So everyone is expecting the new “Black Widow” movie to do huge businesses at the box office. And considering that the big action movies that were released on live streaming over the past year were mostly stinkers, it’s clear that the movie studios saved the good ones for release after the shutdowns end. Just look at Chris Pratt’s “The Tomorrow War,” now available on live streaming. Movie review site Rotten Tomatoes gives it just a 55% overall rating.
As for Scarlett Johansson’s “Black Widow” which makes its worldwide premiere today, Wednesday, Rotten Tomatoes gives the movie a rating of 83%.
