This is on par with what Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth earned for the latest Captain America and Thor standalone films, as well as in this year's Avengers: Infinity War, the publication said.

After half the universe got turned to dust by Thanos' Infinity Gauntlet back in May, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been desperately waiting for the follow up film - an as yet untitled movie referred to for now as "Avengers 4".

Johansson is an American actress and singer.

Scarlett Johansson is in news again and all for the right reasons. Born and raised in Manhattan, New York City, she aspired to be an actress from a young age, and first appeared on stage in an Off-Broadway play as a child.

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 a year ago 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). It's worthy of note, however, that Downey made $500,000 for his first Iron Man film. Although The Wasp was the first female Avenger in the comics (she also helped name the team), Black Widow has been around since the 60's.

Australian filmmaker Cate Shortland is set to direct the Black Widow movie from a script by Jac Schaeffer. Chadwick Boseman allegedly received $2 Million for Black Panther, and Brie Larson ended up with $5 million and is locked in for a seven-picture deal.
