The first Avengers movie was without a doubt an utter success. Scarlett Johansson was a smashing success and producers wanted to make sure she’ll say “yes” to the sequel too. A report by the New York Daily Post reads Scarlett Johansson received a $20 million paycheck for playing the Black Widow part in Avengers 2.
She’s one of the raciest women in Hollywood and just broke the bank with a smashing paycheck. Scarlett Johansson is the actress getting all the rage in Hollywood, and her latest paycheck is a record breaker. With the reported $20 million paycheck from the producers of Avengers 2, Scarlett Johansson would be the best paid actress.
It’s really no wonder Marvel and Disney are thrilled to put together a sequel for the smashing Avengers. The movie is currently third in the list of biggest global box office successes in all history. As of June, Marvel’s movie put “Harry Potter” to shame, with a whopping $1.355 billion. “Avatar” and “Titanic” are still leading the list with $2.782 billion and $2.185 billion. James Cameron must be a very happy guy.
But going back to the matter at hand, Scarlett Johansson is fast becoming the queen of Hollywood. Sure, you might argue that’s a place Angelina Jolie still enjoys, but not for long. Even is according to Forbes magazine, Twilight’s Kirsten Stewart was the best paid actress of 2011, this year is truly Scarlett Johansson’s win. That is, if the report is confirmed to be true.
While Kirsten Stewart only gets $12.5 million a movie, Scarlett Johansson’s staggering paycheck is a record breaker. The reported $20 million paycheck is one million more than what Angelina Jolie was offered to co-star Johnny Depp in “The Tourist”. Plus, there’s a rumor going around that the producers of Avengers are considering a Black Widow project. With Scarlett Johansson so great at performing the part, it goes without reason she’d score that too.
Meanwhile, Scarlet Johansson is enjoying the high life. She was spotted sunbathing on a boat in Italy’s Taormina Sea this Monday. The man joining her caused a lot of debates in the media, but her rep told the New York Daily News it’s only her bodyguard.
