Scarlett Scores $15M Pay For “Black Widow”

After six appearances on screen, Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow character is finally getting her own film at Marvel Studios and will be getting a bigger paycheck to match.

The actress has reportedly scored a $15 million payday for the upcoming standalone film, the same amount Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth earned for the third outings in their “Captain America” and “Thor” franchises.

The same report also indicates Brie Larson scored $5 million former role in “Captain Marvel,” and her contract stipulates she has to do seven Marvel Studios films.

A Marvel spokesperson said in a statement responding to the news: “Marvel Studios disputes the accuracy of these numbers, and as a matter of policy, we never publicly disclose salaries or deal terms.” Johansson will next be seen reprising the role in next year’s fourth “Avengers” film.
