The publication goes on to point out that the salary is what Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth each raked in for their portrayals as Captain America and Thor in this year's Avengers: Infinity War, as well as Captain America: Civil War and Thor: Ragnarok, in addition to the upcoming fourth Avengers film.

Marvel was criticised for taking so long to give the Black Widow her own film.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that most actors in the Marvel cinematic universe have made much less for their initial standalone movies. Brie Larson will reportedly be paid approximately $5 million for Captain Marvel.

In 2008, Marvel hadn't released any movies at all - Iron Man was the first - and the Avengers series wasn't even a thing.

In putting all of this into perspective, Infinity War had a budget of more than $100 million, while each Avengers movie brings in well over $1 billion worldwide.

However, a Marvel spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter that it "disputes the accuracy of these numbers" and does not "publicly disclose salaries or deal terms" as a matter of policy.

It's a gaping imbalance but the Marvel Cinematic Universe simply wasn't the blockbuster franchise it is today.

Marvel Studios is yet to launch the marketing campaign for Avengers 4, but we are starting to get a few leaks of early promotional artwork; a couple of months ago we got the above team shot, and now some toy packaging has surfaced which seems to indicate that Earth's Mightiest Heroes will be getting some matching team outfits in the Infinity War follow-up. The new promotional artwork not only confirms the importance of Pym Tech in the upcoming film but also offers clues on how exactly the scientist's work may play role. Evans first played Steve Rogers, also known as Captain America, in "Captain America: The First Avenger" in 2011.

It was previously announced that Cate Shortland will be directing the Black Widow solo film but no other details have yet been made official.
