Black Widow Movie To Land HUGE Payday For Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson attends the 70th Emmy Awards at Microsoft Theater

Regardless, this is the closest thing we have to go on, and THR had multiple sources confirm the figure, and if Marvel is adamant that they'd never actually reveal their paychecks, it's not like you could expect them to confirm these numbers.

Of the Forbes highest paid actress list the top 10 are all white women, and the gap between ScarJo at $40.5 million and Angelina Jolie at #2 with $28 million tells you all you need to know, especially when you look at the highest paid male actors list and half of them are men of color and Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and RDJ get to be in the top 10. However, equal pay for female stars remains an issue in Hollywood, and $15 million is significantly less than the $25 million salary cited in early, and clearly erroneous reports. For example, Chris Evans initially signed a six-picture deal that included not only his Captain America films (Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: Winter Soldier, and Captain America: Civil War) but also his appearances in the Avengers films (Marvel's Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Avengers: Infinity War).

THR breaks down that Marvel tends to hold the purse strings tight during a first outing, having given Robert Downey Jr. only $500,000 for the first Iron Man.

If you're wondering about what's next for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it'll probably involve quite a bit of Captain Marvel.


Johansson, who became a certified action star with her lead role in Luc Besson's Lucy, has appeared as the fan-favorite Natasha Romanoff in five Marvel Studios films. Johansson herself only got a low seven figures for The Avengers in 2012, which netted Downey $50 million. He would extend that contract to include Avengers 4, which releases next year.

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.

Cate Shortland is attached to direct Black Widow from a script written by Jac Schaeffer.
