Scarlett Johansson Will Get $15M for Black Widow

Scarlett Johansson attends the 70th Emmy Awards at Microsoft Theater

She was among the world's highest-paid actresses from 2014 to 2016, has made multiple appearances in the Forbes Celebrity 100, and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Scarlett Johansson, who plays Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is reportedly set to earn $15 million for the upcoming standalone Black Widow movie.

The publication goes on to point out that the salary is what Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth each raked in for their portrayals as Captain America and Thor in this year's Avengers: Infinity War, as well as Captain America: Civil War and Thor: Ragnarok, in addition to the upcoming fourth Avengers film.

Considering that Johansson has been Black Widow longer than Evans or Hemsworth have played their heroic counterparts, it is disappointing that they have waited this long to give her the same amount of money compared to her male co-stars.

Rather than go through a sometimes-complicated setup process, just screw in the light bulb and load up your Google Assistant app. Another thing we're expecting on the original Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL is Gmail's new Smart Compose tools.

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. The only female founding member of the Avengers in the MCU took home $40 million in the previous year, and it looks like she'll keep piling on the big bucks.

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.

A Marvel spokesperson, in response to the story, said in a statement: "Marvel Studios disputes the accuracy of these numbers, and as a matter of policy, we never publicly disclose salaries or deal terms".

Apparently, Avengers 4 will be the last film of Steve Rogers as Captain America and this news has disappointed many fans of the superhero.
