$15 million remuneration for super-heroine

The Superhero movies, particularly produced by Marvel Studios, usually enjoy huge craze among cinema lovers across the world and capable of collecting massive moolah at the box-office. The production of next such film from Marvel Studios is going into begin soon, but it's not a superhero film this time. Surprisingly, it's going to be super-heroine movie.

'Black Widow' is one of the talented spies and founding member of Avengers and this action stunts by Scarlett Johansson has gained her impressive feedback in the past. By coughing up a big pay cheque of $15 million to Scarlett, Marvel Studios is now making a standalone film with 'Black Widow' in the lead. This is probably no less than what Marvel Studios paid out to its male leads in Avengers: Chris Evans (Captain America) and Chris Hemsworth (Thor).

Generally, any actor who signs a deal with Marvel Studios for the first time gets a very little pay. Robert Downey Jr, who played 'Iron Man' for first time, received just $5 million while Chadwick Boseman was paid a measly remuneration of $2 million to play 'Black Thunder'. However, his salary got bigger in the next instalments.

But, for Scarlett, this is the sixth time she will be essaying the role of 'Black Widow' for Marvel Studios. Considering the weight of her character, the production house did not mind spending a bomb on her.
