Marvel was criticised for taking so long to give the Black Widow her own film. According to the Disney website, Black Panther will be pushed for awards ranging from the coveted Best Picture and Best Director (Ryan Coogler), to Best Actor (Chadwick Boseman), Best Supporting Actor (Michael B Jordan, Winston Duke, Daniel Kaluuya, Martin Freeman, Sterling K Brown, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis), Best Supporting Actress (Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Angela Basset), and a host of lower tier categories including Best Original Song (All of the Stars) and others.
THR points out that the high salaries are just a small dent in the box office grosses for these films: Each "Avengers" film has easily made more than $1 billion worldwide, and "Infinity War" crossed the $2 billion mark. The Marvel Cinematic Universe films are now 10 years in, dating back to the release of "Iron Man" in 2008. A Marvel spokesperson says the company "disputes the accuracy of these numbers", but it never publicly discloses salaries. That's because production has now wrapped on Avengers 4.
It was revealed previous year that even Wonder Woman isn't immune to the gender pay gap: Israeli actress Gal Gadot initially earned around $400,000 for playing the sword-wielding Amazonian, despite the standalone film snapping up more than $300 million in its opening weekend alone (a record for a female-directed movie).
Apparently, Avengers 4 will be the last film of Steve Rogers as Captain America and this news has disappointed many fans of the superhero.
A closer look at the Avengers 4 toy leak that revealed new costumes for Thor and Rocket Raccoon signals the remaining heroes may have larger concerns than Thanos in the Marvel Studios sequel.
