A couple of weeks ago, Forbes revealed its annual list of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood, with Robert Downey Jr. effortlessly landing the top spot. This week, the publication has released the list of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood, with Jennifer Lawrence taking the number one spot followed by Scarlett Johansson — hardly surprising, but what makes this list interesting is that many of the women on it earn far less than their male counterparts.

There has been a very vocal contingent of Marvel fans clamoring for a Black Widow movie. That includes Robert Downey, Jr., Jessica Chastain and, yes, us. But, for all the people who love Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, there seems to be an equally as vocal group of fans who don’t like that character. Indeed, according to a new study, Black Widow is reportedly the most-hated of all the Avengers.

Lucy was perhaps the biggest surprise hit of 2014. Luc Besson’s action-packed and totally bonkers sci-fi film starring reigning queen of sci-fi Scarlett Johansson was actually pretty delightful, but the ending didn’t really leave the door open for a sequel. Given that studios tend to let box office dictate the necessity of a sequel, Lucy 2 seemed inevitable, but Besson himself dismissed the idea and the world moved on — except now he’s changed his mind.

It was a common complaint after Avengers: Age of Ultron opened in theaters: women of all ages went looking for products featuring their favorite female superheroes and found precious little. Black Widow was left out a toy set based on a scene where she was one of the main characters. Even Avengers star Mark Ruffalo had enough, asking Marvel for more toys for his daughters. Finally it seems as if Marvel has gotten the hint and for the upcoming Captain America: Civil War merchandising line, they’re promising a “big focus” on new products for women.
