Scarlett Johansson’s Record Breaking Pay Check

(PCM) Scarlett Johansson’s role as the Black Widow in this summer’s huge blockbuster hit “The Avengers” must have left quite an impression on movie-goers because the actress has been offered $20 million to reprise her role in the film’s sequel. The producers of The Avengers must feel that Scarlett’s role in the series is valuable enough to dish out a cool $20 million, breaking the record for highest paycheck for an actress in a single movie. Angelina Jolie used to hold the title of biggest paycheck from a single movie with $19 million for The Tourist in 201o. While $20 million is no chump change, the producers of the superhero series have plenty of cash to spare with the first installment in the movie series being the third biggest global box office draw in history, raking in over $1,439,983,073 since its open on May 4.
