Scarlett Johansson He waited a long time for his first solo game in the Marvel world, and it seems that all the patience was worth it. According to The Hollywood Reporter Johansson is scheduled to raise $ 15 million for her upcoming independent film Black Widow. That is the same amount both Chrises Evans Y Hemsworth collected for their own most recent stand-ons, Captain America: Civil War Y Thor: Ragnarok. So even as Evans prepares to take advantage of Marvel's cinematic universe, Johansson seems to be all inside.
As T.H.R. He noted that, despite its astronomical richness, Marvel does not usually grant such large salaries for the first independent film of a hero. But at this point, after playing the Black Widow in seven different films, including the upcoming sequel to Avengers: the war of infinity-Johansson is a proven amount. Even more than, say, Robert Downey Jr. It was when he took out $ 500,000 for the first Iron Man. (As Iron Man, of course, the M.C.U. It has proven to be a money printing machine; by T.H.R. each Avengers Movies generally collect more than $ 1 billion worldwide without blinking.) Studio actors also tend to get multi-million dollar bonuses depending on the performance of each movie, so Johansson could do even more.
Multiple sources confirmed the payment figure to T.H.R. but a Marvel representative denied it in a statement: "Marvel Studios questions the accuracy of these numbers and, as a matter of policy, we never publicly disclose the wages or the terms of the agreements." The representatives of Marvel and Johansson did not respond immediately. V.F.Requests for comments.
Fans have been clamoring for Marvel for years to make a Black Widow movie, which made the event's screenwriter's announcement earlier this year feel backward. Even DC, who started his film universe connected years after Marvel did it, managed to deliver his first film directed by women, the successful one Wonder Woman, even before Marvel confirmed that he would make a Black Widow movie. Still, with Captain Marvel on the way next year and Johansson's independent work finally in the works, maybe Marvel will spend his last years making up for lost time.
Meanwhile, Evans, who has played against Steve Rogers since 2011, seemed to announce his exit from the franchise last week when tweeted, "Officially wrapped in Avengers 4. It was an emotional day to say the least. Playing this role in the last 8 years has been an honor. To all who are in front of the camera, behind the camera and in the audience, thanks for the memories! Eternally grateful. "The fans had speculated that Evans would be gone for quite some time, so this tweet was not exactly a surprise, but still, whenever he wants and yet Steve bites the dust in Avengers 4, It seems safe to assume that tears will be shed.
