Scarlett Johansson just got paid.
The Black Widow actress who has appeared in Marvel films such as Iron Man, Captain America, and the Avengers has always played the side character. Now Black Widow will be the central character of her own film.
Johansson was given a 15 million dollar payday to star in a stand-alone Black Widow film. This is a groundbreaking announcement not just for Johansson but for every female actor.
Hollywood is finally realizing as long as you give the audience a great film with a great female character they will show up and support it. Such a profound concept to finally come around to. Insert sarcasm anywhere in that sentence.
