Marvel Studios is known for signing their stars for multiple films at once but, according to Captain Marvel star Brie Larson, initial reports that she had signed a seven-film contract are inaccurate.
Yesterday, a report by The Hollywood Reporter listed the various salaries of MCU actors including a claim that Larson had been paid $5 million for her debut as Captain Marvel next March as the first part of a seven-film deal that included Avengers 4. In response, Larson tweeted that the claim was untrue.
Fellow MCU stars Chris Evans and Tom Holland had each signed six-film contracts upon first being cast as Captain America and Spider-Man, respectively, with Evans extending his contract to include Avengers 4 with the occasional cameo existing outside of his contractual obligations.
With Larson confirmed for two MCU films next year alone, perhaps the Academy Award-winning actor has a similar deal to Evans and Holland with the possibility of an extension.
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck from a script they wrote with Liz Flahive, Carly Mensch, Meg LeFauve, Nicole Perlman, and Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as Mar-Vell, Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, and Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau. The film arrives on March 8, 2019.
