RUMOR: Sequel To MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS Set To Begin Filming In 2013?

Rumour has it that the sequel to Marvel's The Avengers will begin shooting next year and that it's set to make Scarlett Johansson the highest paid actress in Hollywood. Read on for details.

The Sun isn't considered the most reliable source in the world, but they've posted a very interesting story in which they claim that Scarlett Johansson is in talks to return for the sequel with a massive £13 million ($20 million) offered in order for her to reprise her role as Black Widow. This would make her the highest paid actress in Hollywood.

Far more interesting however is what one of their sources reportedly tells them, specifically in regards to when the sequel will begin filming. "Scarlett is the hottest star in Hollywood and her inclusion in the sequel is a must. Producers think that as the only lead woman in the film male fans have found her a key ingredient — both for sex and story appeal. She is loved by critics too. This says, 'We value you'. Everyone is confident she’ll sign and be ready for 2013 filming." The report also mentions that Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth and Jeremy Renner will get 50% pay rises.

With Captain America 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy currently set to be released in 2014, it seems most likely that filming will begin on The Avengers 2 nearer the latter half of next year for release in 2015. Take this with a pinch of salt for the time being, and expect more Marvel movie news during next week's San Diego Comic-Con.

Marvel Studios presents in association with Paramount Pictures Marvel’s The Avengers--the super hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel super heroes Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins.
