Scarlett Johansson $20 Million Avengers 2
According to the Sun, Johansson will reportedly be paid $20 million to reprise the role of Agent Natasha Romanoff in the sequel to May’s superhero ensemble, a record fee for an actress. The haul would top Angelina Jolie’s $19 million payday for 2010′s “The Tourist” and officially make Johansson the highest-paid actress in Hollywood.
It’s definitely a step up from ScarJo’s previous Marvel movie fees. When compared to the massive box-office take of “Iron Man 2″ ($623 million), the actress’ $400,000 paycheque seems paltry. Johansson’s take for “The Avengers” was slightly better, with many reports estimating she was paid anywhere between $4 and $6 million. A $20 million paycheque for “The Avengers 2″ would be quite the jump, but given how successful the original film was at the box office – an estimated $1.45 billion and counting – the raise would be entirely justified.
