Scarlett Johansson Grabs Hefty $15 Million Paycheck For "Black Widow" Solo Film

Scarlett Johansson attends the 70th Emmy Awards at Microsoft Theater

Scarlett Johannson will earn a $15 million salary for reprising her role as Natasha Romanoff in the Black Widow solo film, according to The Hollywood Reporter, although Marvel Studios "disputes" the figure. Robert Downey Jr. was paid $500,000 for the first Iron-Man, but his pay was boosted to $50 million by the time the first Avengers rolled around. Chadwick Boseman allegedly received $2 Million for Black Panther, and Brie Larson ended up with $5 million and is locked in for a seven-picture deal. She was first a villain of Iron-Man, and worked for the Russians before defecting to the U.S. and joining the Avengers.

In putting all of this into perspective, Infinity War had a budget of more than $100 million, while each Avengers movie brings in well over $1 billion worldwide.

Just last week, Evans appeared to retire from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Marvel Studios is yet to launch the marketing campaign for Avengers 4, but we are starting to get a few leaks of early promotional artwork; a couple of months ago we got the above team shot, and now some toy packaging has surfaced which seems to indicate that Earth's Mightiest Heroes will be getting some matching team outfits in the Infinity War follow-up. Johansson's work in the MCU and other films made her the second highest paid actress previous year.

In a March interview with The New York Times, the actor hinted that he was thinking about leaving the role, saying, "You want to get off the train before they push you off". Not only is this the same amount the two Chrises nabbed for Avengers: Infinity War (and the upcoming Avengers 4), but it's also the same salary they commanded in Captain America: Civil War and Thor: Ragnarok, respectively. Evans' Captain America has also made many brief cameo appearances in other Marvel movies.
