After appearing in six movies as Black Widow, Scarlett Johansson is finally getting that $15 million payday for an upcoming stand-alone film that centers on the Marvel superheroine, according to The Hollywood Reporter. 

Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth each earned $15 million for playing Captain America and Thor, respectively, in Avengers: Infinity Wars, and they also nabbed that same amount for the upcoming fourth Avengers film.

Marvel tends to keep salaries low during an actor’s first outing, like with Robert Downey Jr., who took home $500,000 for the first Iron Man. Johansson pulled a low-seven figure salary for her first Avengers movie in 2012 after making her debut in Iron Man 2 in 2010.
