Want To Know How Much The Cast Of Avengers: Age Of Ultron Got Paid?
We have all the info.
Fancy taking a sneak peek at how much the cast of The Avengers got paid for Age Of Ultron? Of course you do!
Comic Book Movie have revealed the deets of the superhero salaries, and we have a feeling you might be slightly surprised. As well as being more than a bit depressed that they made more in one movie than we will in a lifetime. Sigh.
Here are the numbers:
Robert Downey Jr.: $40 million
Scarlett Johansson: $20 million
Chris Evans: $6.9 million
Jeremy Renner: $6.1 million
Chris Hemsworth $5.4 million
Mark Ruffalo: $2.8 million
It’s not totally surprising that RDJ ended up taking home the most dolla – with 3 Iron Man movies under his belt already, Tony Stark is probably the most popular Avenger (at least with Marvel bosses).
However, the biggest shock was seeing ScarJo come in second place, with a pay packet of $20 million. Hollywood is notoriously terrible at fighting the gender pay gap – remember J-Law’s recent public protest against inequality for women in the film industry? – so it’s great to see that the Black Widow is being treated as a valuable member of the comic book gang.
We were also surprised to see how little the rest of the squad received – don’t get us wrong, $2.8 million is still an incredible amount of money, but in comparison it seems pretty low, especially considering that both Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth have led their own Marvel movies.
Did these numbers surprise you at all?
