What is the superpower most lucrative of Black Widow? Their negotiation skills. For the second year in a row, Scarlett Johansson tops the list of Forbes of the actresses better paid, with 56 million dollars (mdd) in profits.
That includes a large amount of money from Marvel, as a check of eight figures for his next film Black Widow and an impressive final payment of around 35 billion, which he won for his participation in Avengers: Endgame, that earned a box-office world of 2,800 mdd.
Join the list with Johansson, the new arrivals Elisabeth Moss, and Margot Robbie, as well as –in his large return– Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon. Together, the 10 actresses better paid of the world amounted to 314,6 mdd, between 1 June 2018, 1 June 2019, before fees and taxes. That is a 69% more than the cumulative total of last year, but still much less than the 588,3 mdd of the 10 players with the most winnings.
