Report: Scarlett Johansson’s ‘Avengers 2’ earnings will be record-breaking

  • $20 million paycheck to reprise the role of Black Widow source

» Think this has anything to do with rumors that Johansson will be starring in a Black Widow spin-off and/or S.H.I.E.L.D. movie? Or the massive payday that Robert Downey Jr. saw as a result of the first ‘Avengers' flick? Then again, maybe Disney and Marvel realize that — after you release the third-highest grossing film of all time — you’re going to have to pay your all-star cast a bit more money to get them all back for the sequel.

Success of “The Avengers” earns Robert Downey Jr. millions

  • $50 million payday thanks to studio profit-sharing deal  source

» Marvel signed the deal after the box-office success of Iron Man (2008), agreeing to pay Robert Downey Jr. a percentage of profits from all future movies in which the actor appears as Tony Stark/Iron Man. That’s significantly more than anyone else: Fellow stars Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, and Samuel L. Jackson are each expected to make $2-$6 million from their wages and profit-sharing deals.

What’s next for “The Avengers” after its killer $207 million first weekend?

  • sequels With most of the franchise’s actors signed to multi-film deals already, the sequels are already on tap — “Iron Man 3” has a release date about a year from now; “Thor 2” should hit near Thanksgiving 2013; and finally, “Captain America 2” comes in 2014. But what about an “Avengers” sequel? That’s in the talks, too, though it’s early.
  • spinoffs Mark Ruffalo’s critically-acclaimed Incredible Hulk performance has built hype around rebooting that series (Edward Norton’s take, while not a flop, didn’t set the world ablaze, either), and Scarlett Johansson said that she knows Marvel “would be happy to entertain” the fans’ cries for a Black Widow origin story. source
