Scarlett Johansson seems to have surpassed her giant $10 million earnings for Ghost In Shell on the upcoming Black Widow solo movie according to THR.
The outlet reports that Scarlett has earned an impressive $15 million for the solo outing.
Scarlett Johansson, who has appeared in six movies as Black Widow, is finally landing a $15 million payday for an upcoming standalone film centered on the Marvel superheroine, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
That salary equals what Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth earned for playing Captain America and Thor, respectively, in this year’s Avengers: Infinity War. Evans and Hemsworth also nabbed that same $15 million payday for Captain America: Civil War and Thor: Ragnarok, respectively, as well as the upcoming fourth Avengers film.
It’s obviously earned, as Scarlett has previously had a key supporting role in Iron Man 2, Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers 4.
Aussie director Cate Shortland was recently hired and they are expected to get cameras rolling within the first half of 2019. There is word that casting is the next big step for the film as it’s entered the pre-production phase.
Marvel Studios has yet to give Black Widow an official release date but it’s certainly coming out in 2020.
