She will soon have three superhero movies under her belt so it’s no wonder film producers are keen to get her experience on board for a fourth.
Scarlett Johansson has reportedly been offered £13million to star in the sequel to Avengers Assemble. The monumental fee will make the 27-year-old the highest paid female actor of all time. Scarlett, who plays the role of Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow, is being tempted to star as the character for the third time in Avengers 2. The huge fee would eclipse the £12.2million paid to Angelina Jolie for her role in The Tourist, back in 2010. Avengers Assemble became the third highest grossing movie in history by taking £936 million at the box office, and Scarlett is seen as an integral part of its success. A source told The Sun newspaper: ‘Scarlett is the hottest star in Hollywood and her inclusion in the sequel is a must. ‘Producers think that as the only lead woman in the film male fans have found her a key ingredient – both for sex and story appeal. She is loved by critics too.’
Johansson is the only female member of the Avengers.
