After being in six Marvel Cinematic Universe movies as Black Widow, Scarlett Johansson is finally getting paid big time.

The actress is going to be taking in $ 15 million for her upcoming standalone movie, a salary that equals what Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth both earned on “Avengers: Infinity War,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

If you think six movies (counting “Avengers 4”) is quite a long time to get a raise (Johansson earned a low seven-figure check for the first “Avengers” movie back in 2012, according to THR), it’s actually par for the course when it comes to how Disney and Marvel Studios pay stars. Basically, the longer you stay in the franchise, the more you’ll eventually make.

Here’s how much 5 other actors have been paid during their time in the MCU:

Chris Hemsworth — $ 150,000 for “Thor” (2011) / $ 15 million for “Avengers: Infinity War” (2017)

Marvel Studios

The actor didn’t have many credits to his name when he came on to play Odin’s son in the first movie, so he didn’t have much leverage when it came to negotiating a salary. But clearly things have worked out well for him.

Chris Evans — $ 1 million for “Captain America: The First Avenger” (2011) / $ 15 million for “Avengers: Infinity War” (2017)


This Chris likely got a little more because he had better name recognition when he agreed to play Steve Rogers. In fact, he had already played a superhero. He was Johnny Storm in the early 2000s version of the “Fantastic Four” franchise.

Chadwick Boseman — $ 2 million for “Black Panther” (2017) / Upcoming MCU movies: Unknown

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

For Disney standards, starting out at $ 2 million isn’t bad. And being part of one of the biggest Marvel hits of all time certainly led to Boseman getting a nice bonus. He’ll definitely be looking at bigger paydays playing T’Challa going forward.
