Scarlett Johansson is set to rake in big bucks for the upcoming Marvel flick "Black Widow", according to The Hollywood Reporter.

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. Robert Downey Jr. was paid $500,000 for the first Iron-Man, but his pay was boosted to $50 million by the time the first Avengers rolled around. She was first a villain of Iron-Man, and worked for the Russians before defecting to the United States and joining the Avengers. 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?

Multiple sources confirmed the $15 million pay to THR, but a Marvel spokesperson denied it, saying, "Marvel Studios disputes the accuracy of these numbers, and as a matter of policy, we never publicly disclose salaries or deal terms".

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Infinity War" brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time.

Avengers 4 is scheduled to be released in theaters on May 3, 2019. Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honor.

Earlier this morning, leaked promotional artwork for tie-in action figures for Thor and Rocket Raccoon in Avengers 4 was posted online showing both heroes wearing matching new outfits with a smaller image of Captain America wearing a similar outfit also included with the leak. An argument can be made that they carried stand alone movies and she was a supporting character, but a counter-argument is simply that they should have given her a stand-alone film ages ago.
