  • BLACK WIDOW Earns $15 Million Payday for SCARLETT JOHANSSON - Report

Johansson's Black Widow payday will reportedly match the salary earned by Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth for each of their respective performances as Captain America and Thor in Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers 4, and in their latest solo films Civil War and Ragnarok. Brie Larson is also said to have scored $5 million for Captain Marvel.

Now, new Avengers 4 merchandise has revealed new costumes for Thor and Rocket Raccoon that may have confirmed the surviving heroes of Infinity War will use the Quantum Realm to travel back in time in an effort to prevent Thanos' mass extermination from ever taking place. Chadwick Boseman is said to have received $2 million for Black Panther, with that figure probably a lot higher for the sequel. THR points out that Marvel typically pays lower salaries for debut standalones - even Robert Downey Jr. was paid only $500,000 for the first "Iron Man".

Long before audiences witnessed the shocking conclusion of Avengers: Infinity War, fans began to suspect that the untitled fourth film would involve time travel after set photos suggested major heroes would revisit the Battle of NY from the first film.


Whatever the actual numbers, Marvel clearly spends a large chunk of money on its talent - which it is able to do when their films are consistent smash hits. 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? It's rumoured to be a prequel, set before the events of the first Avengers film.

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

Avengers 4 reshoots are now in the works in Atlanta, USA, ahead of the movie's release in April.
