Scarlett Johansson Getting Equal Pay for 'Black Widow' Standalone Film

BLACK WIDOW Earns $15 Million Payday for SCARLETT JOHANSSON - Report Scarlett Johansson Getting Equal Pay for 'Black Widow' Standalone Film (Report)

The news comes as it's reported that Scarlett Johansson has signed a hefty $15 million to front the first Black Widow standalone film.

This is Johansson's sixth appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Black Widow.

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.

Avengers: Infinity War made over $2 billion at the global box office - one of the highest figures for any movie in history. It's worthy of note, however, that Downey made $500,000 for his first Iron Man film.

In a statement to the Reporter, though, a spokesperson for Marvel said, "Marvel Studios disputes the accuracy of these numbers, and as a matter of policy, we never publicly disclose salaries or deal terms".

It's a gaping imbalance but the Marvel Cinematic Universe simply wasn't the blockbuster franchise it is today.

In addition to the costume change, it indicates numerous surviving heroes from the events of this year's Avengers: Infinity War will join together on a mysterious new mission but also suggests the sleek, futuristic uniforms have a common origin that may hint at the Avengers' secret weapon in defeating Thanos and reversing the devastating loss at the hands of the Mad Titan: Hank Pym and the Quantum Realm. It was an emotional day to say the least.

Next year's Avengers 4 - believed to be titled Avengers: Annihilation - is expected to do similar business, following the last movie's shocking cliffhangers.

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".

Black Widow has been an important part of Avenger history for decades.

While no villain or other heroes have been named, there has been unsubstantiated speculation that the Taskmaster might make his long awaited MCU debut in this movie.
