Actress Scarlett Johansson is already one of the most successful movie stars in Hollywood – and now she is set to top another list – the highest paid actresses. It will be because of the $ 20 million salary she negotiated to reprise her role as Black Widow in the inevitable sequel to the hit hit Avengers.
In terms of salary, Scarlett Johansson will overtake the previous record holder, who turned out to be Angelina Jolie, for her role in the $ 19 million movie “The Tourist”. so maybe things will level out.
Scarlett Johansson came from a pretty healthy place in her negotiations, as The Avengers is not only one of the most successful films of all time, but the current superhero trend in Hollywood is showing no signs of slowing down.
The Amazing Spider-Man is now in theaters, which is doing well (despite not picking up numbers of Avengers like this), and the upcoming Batman film The Dark Knight Uprising should also make phenomenal business.
In addition to that, Scarlett Johansson herself has become a big hit with the Avengers ensemble, so it makes sense that she would take the lead and demand such a huge paycheck to return. It is unknown if some of the other “lesser” crew members, such as Chris Hemsworth or Jeremy Renner, will also receive a movie star salary from the sequel, but it’s safe to say that they will. not bad for myself too.
And make the mistake of assuming that this means Johansson will be resting on his laurels. She was played in two more films, Under the Skin and Hitchcock, in which she plays Janet Lee from Psycho.
