Scarlett Johansson, already the world's highest-paid actress, according to Forbes, is going to be paid a cool $15 million for starring in the first standalone Black Widowmovie, sources tell the Hollywood Reporter. As per the producer of the film, Kevin Feige had earlier said, "The entire intention of Infinity War and the next Avengers film next year was to have an ending - to bring a conclusion to 10-plus years, 22-movie narrative in a way that hadn't been done before in this particular type of film". The film arrives on May 3, 2019.
Scarlett Johansson appears to be making a healthy amount for her upcoming solo Black Widow film. The Marvel Cinematic Universe films are now 10 years in, dating back to the release of "Iron Man" in 2008.
In a statement to the Reporter, though, a spokesperson for Marvel said, "Marvel Studios disputes the accuracy of these numbers, and as a matter of policy, we never publicly disclose salaries or deal terms".
The report also reveals Chadwick Boseman was paid $2 million (£1.5 million) for Black Panther, while Brie Larson is set to earn $5 million (£3.7 million) for 2019's Captain Marvel.More news: Barcelona plan new deal for Lionel Messi?

Apparently, Avengers 4 will be the last film of Steve Rogers as Captain America and this news has disappointed many fans of the superhero.
"The brothers, who also directed the third installment, "Avengers: "Infinity War", couldn't help but punctuate the announcement by teasing fans with a unusual image that's simply captioned "#wrapped".
In a March interview with The New York Times, the actor hinted that he was thinking about leaving the role, saying, "You want to get off the train before they push you off". Then again, this won't be Johansson's first time around as Black Widow, as the character has been a mainstay in Marvel's team-up films for years.
