The truth will be revealed when "Avengers 4" is out on May 3.

This amount, which is not being officially confirmed by Marvel because "as a matter of policy, we never publicly disclose salaries or deal terms", has been confirmed by multiple knowledgeable sources to THR, equals what Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth earned each time playing Captain America and Thor in Infinity War, Civil War, and Ragnarok. 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.

Marvel Studios will pay Scarlett Johansson a massive $15 million (more than Rs 100 crore) for the upcoming standalone Black Widow film, The Hollywood Reporter reported.


Johansson appeared in her first Avengers movie back in 2012, earning a low seven-figure salary, compared to Robert Downey Jr.'s whopping $50 million payday. She was first a villain of Iron-Man, and worked for the Russians before defecting to the USA and joining the Avengers. Black Panther was appreciated for is political and social undertones, which was seen as a welcome addition to the largely lightweight Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"The brothers, who also directed the third installment, "Avengers: "Infinity War", couldn't help but punctuate the announcement by teasing fans with a unusual image that's simply captioned "#wrapped". 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.

Australian filmmaker Cate Shortland is set to direct the Black Widow movie from a script by Jac Schaeffer. Evans' Captain America has also made many brief cameo appearances in other Marvel movies.
