Scarlett Johansson to Reportedly Earn $15 Million for New Black Widow Movie

13 October 2018

This $15 million payday is the same amount her co-stars Chris Evans as Captain America and Chris Hemsworth as Thor were paid not only for Avengers: Infinity War but also for their stand alone films, Captain America: Civil War and Thor: Ragnarok.

Marvel Studios will pay Scarlett Johansson a massive $15 million (more than Rs 100 crore) for the upcoming standalone Black Widow film, The Hollywood Reporter reported.

Marvel was criticised for taking so long to give the Black Widow her own film.

Elsewhere in the report, it had been claimed that Black Panther's Chadwick Boseman took home $2 million for Black Panther, with that number set to jump for the upcoming sequel.

In short, Johansson has finally earned her way to a big dog salary in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Robert Downey Jr. still dwarfing everyone else's paycheck.

Avengers: Infinity War made over $2 billion at the global box office - one of the highest figures for any movie in history. THR also says that actors typically get a bonus depending on the film's performance at the box office. She was first a villain of Iron-Man, and worked for the Russians before defecting to the USA and joining the Avengers.

Marvel bosses responded to the United States publication: "Marvel Studios disputes the accuracy of these numbers, and as a matter of policy, we never publicly disclose salaries or deal terms".

Enter the latest round of Avengers 4 leaks, which show Thor and Rocket Raccoon in new grey costumes that look as though they were built specifically for extreme conditions. Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honor.

After that, Marvel will move into a new phase of storytelling - without, it seems, Evans as Captain America.

It was previously announced that Cate Shortland will be directing the Black Widow solo film but no other details have yet been made official.
