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

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 4 is said to hit the screens on May 3, 2019.

That Black Widow movie in the works is making moves towards its existence, and the biggest news is that actress Scarlett Johansson, according to The Hollywood Reporter, is getting a $15 million payday for this upcoming stand-alone film. This is on par with what Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth earned for the latest Captain America and Thor standalone films, as well as in this year's Avengers: Infinity War, the publication said.

In comparison, Robert Downey Jr. was paid around $700,000 for the first Iron Man film. A Marvel spokesperson says the company "disputes the accuracy of these numbers", but it never publicly discloses salaries.

However he was then believed to be paid $50 million for the first Avengers film, while Johansson at the time was in the low-millions.
