Marvel was criticised for taking so long to give the Black Widow her own film.

Marvel Studios will pay Scarlett Johansson a massive $15 million (more than Rs 100 crore) for the upcoming standalone Black Widow film, The Hollywood Reporter reported.

Avengers: Infinity War made over $2 billion at the global box office - one of the highest figures for any movie in history. She was first a villain of Iron-Man, and worked for the Russians before defecting to the USA and joining the Avengers.

However, a Marvel spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter that it "disputes the accuracy of these numbers" and does not "publicly disclose salaries or deal terms" as a matter of policy.

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Infinity War" brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time.

It's also what they have allegedly been paid to star in Avengers: Infinity War, and also for Avengers 4.

Next year's Avengers 4 - believed to be titled Avengers: Annihilation - is expected to do similar business, following the last movie's shocking cliffhangers. To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Evans first played Steve Rogers, also known as Captain America, in "Captain America: The First Avenger" in 2011.

Congratulations, Scarlett Johansson, it only took you a handful of films, but you're finally able to say your MCU salary is on par with most of your Avengers brethren.

It was revealed past year that even Wonder Woman isn't immune to the gender pay gap: Israeli actress Gal Gadot initially earned around $400,000 for playing the sword-wielding Amazonian, despite the standalone film snapping up more than $300 million in its opening weekend alone (a record for a female-directed movie).
