Iron Man is the Highest Paid Avenger

Friday, May 18, 2012

On the movie posters, he has the biggest photo in the group. In the movie, he is the genius, playboy billionaire. Could it be true that Robert Downey Jr. is also the highest paid Avenger? A new salary report says so. 

He is reportedly getting as much as $50 Million while Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Chris Evans (Captain America) and Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk) will be paid somewhere between $2M and $3M.  Meanwhile ScarJo (The Black Widow) and Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) will get $4-$5M. 

Nope, it's not about favoritism. It's just because the success of the Iron Man movies led to Downey's contract being upgraded which gives him a percentage of the earnings of every Marvel movie he's a part of. Smart!
