The Black Widow is going to see green — and a lot of it.
That is the same amount that Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth got for playing Captain America and Thor in this year's "Avengers: Infinity War," as well as for their most recent standalone movies "Captain America: Civil War" and "Thor: Ragnarok."
Marvel, however, told THR in a statement that it "disputes the accuracy of these numbers, and as a matter of policy, we never publicly disclose salaries or deal terms."
If the salary figure is correct, it's a huge amount for a character's first standalone movie. Robert Downey Jr. only made $500,000 for the first "Iron Man," and Chadwick Boseman reportedly received $2 million for "Black Panther."Brie Larson is making $5 million for the upcoming "Captain Marvel," but also signed a seven-movie deal.
Johansson has appeared in six Marvel Cinematic Universe movies: "Iron Man 2,""Avengers,""Captain America: The Winter Soldier,""Avengers: Age of Ultron,""Captain America: Civil War," and "Infinity War." She will also return in "Avengers 4."
The Black Widow movie will be directed by Cate Shortland and is rumored to be a prequel set before the events of "Avengers." It currently has no release date.
