Scarlett Johansson Gets Massive Black Widow Movie Pay

According to The Hollywood Reporter, that number matches what Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth made for Captain America: Civil War and Thor: Ragnarok respectively.

Avengers 4 fan theories have been doing the rounds online non-stop since the credits finally stopped rolling on Infinity War, but there was always one that stood out - that of the surviving Avengers using the Quantum Realm to defeat Thanos.

Johnasson's first standalone film salary is higher than some of her other MCU co-stars, as Robert Downey Jr., for example, "took home $500,000 for the first Iron Man". For comparison to relatively new Avengers, Chadwick Boseman was reportedly paid $2 million for Black Panther and Brie Larson $5 million for Captain Marvel - though it's worth noting that Marvel has been notoriously stingy on acting contracts in the past for first-time supers.

Australian filmmaker Cate Shortland is set to direct the Black Widow movie from a script by Jac Schaeffer.

Whatever the actual numbers, Marvel clearly spends a large chunk of money on its talent - which it is able to do when their films are consistent smash hits.

THR points out that the high salaries are just a small dent in the box office grosses for these films: Each "Avengers" film has easily made more than $1 billion worldwide, and "Infinity War" crossed the $2 billion mark.

A culmination of 22 interconnected films the fourth installment of the Avengers saga will draw audiences to witness the turning point of this epic journey. A brief glimpse of Captain America's white suit can also be seen to the lower right of the image.
