The 33-year-old actress will make her debut as the superheroine in Marvel's anticipated standalone film, slated for release in 2020. This is equal to what her male co-stars Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth received for their work in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR and THOR: RAGNAROK.

Scarlett Johansson has smashed through Hollywood's glass ceiling to land a staggering $15 million (£11.3 million) salary for Black Widow.

Marvel bosses responded to the U.S. publication: "Marvel Studios disputes the accuracy of these numbers, and as a matter of policy, we never publicly disclose salaries or deal terms".

THR breaks down that Marvel tends to hold the purse strings tight during a first outing, having given Robert Downey Jr. only $500,000 for the first Iron Man. Chadwick Boseman, on the other hand, reportedly agreed to a $2 million deal to star in Black Panther, while he is expected to be paid much more for the impending sequel.

THR points out that the high salaries are just a small dent in the box office grosses for these films: Each "Avengers" film has easily made more than $1 billion worldwide, and "Infinity War" crossed the $2 billion mark.

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. The new promotional artwork not only confirms the importance of Pym Tech in the upcoming film but also offers clues on how exactly the scientist's work may play role.

However he was then believed to be paid $50 million for the first Avengers film, while Johansson at the time was in the low-millions. Given that Lang has since been seen in various set photos alongside Captain America and Iron Man, it's a sure bet that the size-changing superhero will escape back to Earth to help his fellow Avengers, though that rescue may perhaps take as long as five years. Marvel rarely pays this well for a hero's first solo movie.
