Despite Disney pushing its release date, fans of Marvel Cinematic Universal know that Black Widow is officially in post-production. This means that (despite the long wait) Scarlett Johansson’s net worth is now well received. The 35-year-old actress stars alongside Florence Pugh in the film and has been killing a Black Widow’s solo franchise.
Based on past pay reports for MCU actors, we know that Oscar-nominated actress is doing well. There is no arguing that some male companions, such as former co-star Robert Downey Jr., are doing more than her. Johansson mentioned this in an interview with Cosmopolitan, where she told about being fortunate but acknowledged that the gender pay gap is a problem.
“I am very fortunate,” she confessed. “I make a really good living, and I’m proud to be an actress who’s making as much as many of my male peers at this stage… I think every woman has [been underpaid], but unless I’m addressing it as a larger problem, for me to talk about my personal experience with it feels a little obnoxious. It’s part of a larger conversation about feminism in general.”
Still, ScarJo is far from scrounging for more when it comes to her salary. Read on below to see just how much she makes from her MCU films.
How much did she earn for Avengers: Endgame?
Marvel’s Avengers franchise follows a scaled pay structure for its talent, with actors like Johansson falling into the same category as co-stars Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth. In 2015, Variety reported that the trio was earning up to $15 Million for Avengers: Age of Ultron.
That said, Avengers: Endgame has just completed the franchise with its highest-grossing film (in fact, it’s the highest-grossing movie ever). Actors usually make a decent percentage at the box office, so it’s entirely justifiable for Johansson to make more than her appearance as the Black Widow in the Avengers universe.
How much did she make for Black Widow (2020)?
Though she may have done much in last year’s Avengers: Endgame, reports have generally concluded that Marvel will pay a similar rate to its main stars for the first film of any independent franchise, $15 Million. For ScarJo, this means she’s doing the same on Black Widow.
What is her net worth?
Johansson’s exact salary remains debatable, but sources such as Wealthy Persons estimate her total net worth to be $180 Million by April 2020.
