Scarlett Johansson Gets $15 Million for 'Black Widow' Film

An argument can be made that they carried stand alone movies and she was a supporting character, but a counter-argument is simply that they should have given her a stand-alone film ages ago.

This amount, which is not being officially confirmed by Marvel because "as a matter of policy, we never publicly disclose salaries or deal terms", has been confirmed by multiple knowledgeable sources to THR, equals what Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth earned each time playing Captain America and Thor in Infinity War, Civil War, and Ragnarok. Then again, this won't be Johansson's first time around as Black Widow, as the character has been a mainstay in Marvel's team-up films for years. Robert Downey Jr. made just $500,000 for the first Iron Man, while Chadwick Boseman is said to have pulled down $2 million for the first Black Panther. Johansson herself only got a low seven figures for The Avengers in 2012, which netted Downey $50 million.

By comparison, Oscar victor Brie Larson was paid a reported $5 million for her starring role next year in Captain Marvel, as part of a seven-picture deal. Larson is set to appear in her own solo movie months prior to the release of Avengers 4 and according to a new report, fans can expect to see much more of Carol Danvers in the future.

Congratulations, Scarlett Johansson, it only took you a handful of films, but you're finally able to say your MCU salary is on par with most of your Avengers brethren. Also, random quick piece of trivia: all these actors added around $100 million to Avengers: Infinity War's budget - good thing that movie cracked $2 billion at the box office, right? Avengers movies in general have all hit a billion worldwide easily.

A spokesperson for Marvel has denied the numbers for ScarJo, however.
