Iman Vellani's MCU Salary: How Much Money Does the 20-Year-Old Star Earn From 'Ms Marvel' and 'The Marvels'

Over the last decade, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has become a household brand. Actors like Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, and Scarlett Johansson became famous for the studio’s lavish productions. However, a hallmark of the series is its willingness to employ unknown performers in major roles.

The franchise has also cast Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan in Ms. Marvel, following the same pattern. Being a newcomer to the field, you may be curious about how big of an impact Iman Vellani’s employment with Marvel has had on her financial situation.

Iman Vellani’s Rise in the Marvel Universe

Iman Vellani was never interested in acting, but she was a huge fan of comics, particularly Kamala Khan’s portrayal of Ms. Marvel. It’s hardly surprising that the Pakistani-Canadian teenager jumped at the chance to become Marvel’s first Muslim lead star. It was a consensus choice to cast Vellani in the role; she was a natural match since she was already familiar with the character.

Because of her inexperience, Vellani will certainly earn less than her more seasoned colleagues. However, her salary is predicted to skyrocket with the forthcoming series of installments. It’s no secret that Iman Vellani, like other Marvel actors, has signed a multi-show/movie agreement to help her financially in the long term.

In the upcoming 2023 action movie The Marvels, Vellani will reprise her role as Kamala Khan alongside Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel. It is reasonable to presume that Vellani is on a deal comparable to the seven films Larson agreed to in return for $5 million for her 2019 solo outing.

How Much Money Did Iman Vellani Make in Ms. Marvel?

Disney+’s Ms. Marvel being a Marvel series with a considerably bigger size and scope means charting new territory regarding how much each Marvel actor on a Disney+ show earns. Vellani is said to have earned between $500,000 and $1,000,000 for her portrayal of Kamala Khan.

With the show’s tremendous success, her pay for the second season could be ten folds. The more Vellani appears in the MCU, the higher her paycheck will likely be. There may not be any official data about Vellani’s wealth, but we may make an estimated guess based on the salaries of other Marvel Cinematic Universe performers.

According to Forbes, actors in the Marvel Cinematic Universe may earn over $10 million for each film, while Robert Downey Jr. made an estimated $75 million from Avengers: Endgame alone. As a result, Vellani’s salary will likely skyrocket if she keeps popping up in the MCU.

Vellani may have earned significantly less than some of the more seasoned MCU performers. For example, Chris Evans earned $200,000 for 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger but $15,000,000 for 2019’s Avengers: Endgame.

On the other hand, Scarlett Johansson’s first Marvel Cinematic Universe debut did not pay off as well financially as her subsequent ones. Johansson allegedly made $400,000 from her first Marvel picture, Iron Man 2.

After ten years of acting in the role, however, in 2021’s Black Widow, she received an up-front payment of $20 million. Like many other stars, Iman Vellani has signed a multi-film agreement with the MCU.

The Marvels is scheduled for release in 2023, and it has already been confirmed that she will be reprising her role as Kamala Khan in the film. The actress will co-star alongside Brie Larson, who plays Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, in the film.
