This is on par with what Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth earned for the latest Captain America and Thor standalone films, as well as in this year's Avengers: Infinity War, the publication said.

Marvel star Scarlett Johansson has finally achieved pay parity with her Avengers co-stars bagging herself a $15 million (£11.3 million) payday for the solo Black Widow movie.

Disney also lists Incredibles 2 - another box office behemoth - as the third film they will be pushing for the Oscars. It's worthy of note, however, that Downey made $500,000 for his first Iron Man film.

But before you start taking all these numbers to the bank, it's worth noting that a Marvel spokesperson denied Johansson's reported salary, saying, "Marvel Studios disputes the accuracy of these numbers, and as a matter of policy, we never publicly disclose salaries or deal terms".

Both Black Panther and Infinity War were major box office winners - interestingly, Black Panther has made more money in the USA than Infinity War, which has grossed over $2 billion worldwide.

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Infinity War" brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time.

Potential massive spoilers for The Avengers 4 may follow below as merchandise has leaked online offering details on new suits for both Thor and Rocket Raccoon, in addition to mention of villains. It was an emotional day to say the least. Evans first played Steve Rogers, also known as Captain America, in "Captain America: The First Avenger" in 2011.

However he was then believed to be paid $50 million for the first Avengers film, while Johansson at the time was in the low-millions.

It's a great news for all Marvel and Avengers fans as the shooting of the fourth installment of the ensemble superhero franchise has been wrapped up.
