Scarlett Johansson Earns a Huge Payday for Black Widow

Scarlett Johansson Earns a Huge Payday for Black Widow

Meanwhile Brie Larson is said to have landed a hefty $5 million for Captain Marvel; the sweetener for the studio being that her contract ties her in to up to seven movies.

This image released by Marvel Studios shows, front row from left, Danai Gurira, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Evans, Scarlet Johansson and Sebastian Stan in a scene from "Avengers: Infinity War".

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.

In short, Johansson has finally earned her way to a big dog salary in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Robert Downey Jr. still dwarfing everyone else's paycheck.

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.

Air Force awards three Launch Service Agreements
Air Force has chosen three aerospace companies in which to invest $2 billion, including one that builds rockets in Chandler. The Air Force sought at least two US companies that could meet all of its requirements and needs over the coming years.

However, a Marvel spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter that it "disputes the accuracy of these numbers" and does not "publicly disclose salaries or deal terms" as a matter of policy.

THR points out that the high salaries are just a small dent in the box office grosses for these films: Each "Avengers" film has easily made more than $1 billion worldwide, and "Infinity War" crossed the $2 billion mark.

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

Comic Book Movie reports that "Avengers 4 merchandise leaked online featuring a look at Thor and Rocket decked out in brand new costumes", as well as a description of the tie-in. Evans first played Steve Rogers, also known as Captain America, in "Captain America: The First Avenger" in 2011.

Avengers 4 is out on April 26, 2019.
