Directed by Cate Shortland, it will be the studio's second female superhero-led film after Captain Marvel, which is scheduled to be released in the United States of America on March 8, 2019.

Evans and Hemsworh, who play Captain America and Thor respectively, reportedly earned $15 million each for Infinity War, and for Captain America: Civil War, Thor: Ragnarok, and the upcoming Avengers 4.

Johansson has appeared in Marvel films as Black Widow six times, but "Black Widow" will be her first standalone film as the character.

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.

Confirmed cast members for the untitled fourth Avengers film so far include Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olson, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Sebastian Stan, Don Cheadle, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Pom Klementieff, Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Wong, Sean Gunn, Tom Holland, Paul Rudd, Jon Favreau, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Gwyneth Paltrow, Evangeline Lilly and Josh Brolin. It was an emotional day to say the least.

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). To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Evans first played Steve Rogers, also known as Captain America, in "Captain America: The First Avenger" in 2011.
