Move over Angelina Jolie!
There's a very good chance Marvel will offer Scarlett Johansson $20 mil to reprise her role in an Avengers sequel that should film next year!!
That would be the highest payday for any actress, ever. Angie commanded nearly that much in The Tourist and Sandra Bullock would be bumped down to third on the list for Blindside.
That's a lot of money for one actor in an ensemble film but the studios know it's ScarJo's
pretty face latex clad butt that will put boys in theaters to see Avengers 2 : Avenge Harder! a few summers from now!
One source said:
“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."
Don't feel TOO bad for the dudes, though.
Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Chris Hemsworth are also expected to receive a 50% bump in pay!!
Pay them whatever you have to, Marvel! If Joss Whedon's followup is anywhere near as successful as the original, it'll all be well worth it!!
