    Scarlett Johansson Lands Massive $15 Million Payday For Starring In BLACK WIDOW Movie
    [​IMG]
    In an unprecedented move by Marvel Studios, it's been revealed today that Avengers: Infinity Warstar Scarlett Johansson hs secured a huge payday to return as Black Widow in that planned solo outing...

    Marvel Studios isn't known for paying its stars a huge amount of money. Before he became a pivotal part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Robert Downey Jr. was paid a paltry $500,000 for the first Iron Man movie and Scarlett Johansson earned a low seven-figure salary for The Avengers (which is a lot of money to us regular folk but not a patch on the $50 million scored by Downey Jr. in the ensemble).

    However, The Hollywood Reporter has now revealed that Johansson - who has starred in six movies as Black Widow - will land a massive $15 million payday for the upcoming standalone movie featuring the spy. That's the same amount that Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth made for Captain America: Civil War and Thor: Ragnarok and Marvel Studios is clearly embracing the idea of equal pay for its actors.

    The trade notes that those who stick around for the long haul in the Marvel Cinematic Universe are rewarded for their efforts because Chadwick Boseman, who was paid $2 million for Black Panther, is expected to receive a significant pay rise for the sequel. Marvel also allows its actors to share in the upside of a movie and you have to wonder if more money will convince Chris Evans to stick around.

    What would the plot even be, of a Black Widow movie?

    I feel like Agent Carter was already representative enough, of female character in the MCU who operated as a spy (of sorts) and was a total badass at it. Winter Soldier already touched on espionage and how you can't always trust the government / SHIELD within the MCU.

    imo, Johansson / BW doesn't bring enough "newness" to the table. I'd much rather see a new, unknown property get a solo movie, and have that character be a part of phase 4.

    IMO just about the only thing to do is to tell her origin story, like back when she was a spy and have her as the villian or anti-hero for most of the movie before Hawkeye flips her.

    There's a really interesting story to tell if they want to do it, but I feel like it already should have happened by now. Also, if you do this it'll make more of an impact when you kill both characters off in Avengers 4.

    I'd watch an origin movie if done right. Probably a similar feel like winter soldier meets atomic blonde

    They said they want to step back after Infinity War and go smaller. There's no topping Thanos, so it's wise to go with more grounded conflicts.

    This is perfect for Black Widow who is comically underpowered compared to the other heroes. It will depend entirely on how well it is written, but an outright action spy adventure could be awesome. She is an established character, so they wouldn't have to waste half the movie developing, they could dive right in

    A James Bondish origin story with a good script and no cheesy Avenger cameos?

    That actually sounds good.

    I'm hoping it is Black Widow trying to figure out who is a skrill and who isn't.

    Hey, I'm fine with that. :cool:

    Agree with the need for an excellent script. Scarlett can act, if they'll give her something decent to say.

    This has offended Scarlett Johansson's butt
