The Avengers has already crossed the $1 billion mark at the box office and is forcing its way up the top ten highest grossing movies of all-time. Obviously Marvel and Disney are making astronomical profits from the film with many more millions to come, but what about the film's stars?
Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson are reported to have made anywhere between $2 million and $6 million for their work in The Avengers, plus small bonuses. Robert Downey Jr., however, made more. A lot more.
Marvel has a history for being especially tight with the wallet when it comes to paying the stars of feature films based on Marvel Comics properties. Terence Howard, who co-starred in Iron Man with Robert Downey Jr., was the highest paid actors in that film despite bigger names such as Jeff Bridges, Gwyneth Paltrow and, of course, Downey Jr. »
