We all know that Robert Downey Jr. earns an obscene amount of money for his appearances as Tony Stark in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but how does Iron Man’s pay cheque stack up next to the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes? Well, thanks to Celebrity Glory, we know exactly how much the six original Avengers received for this year’s blockbuster sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron…
Robert Downey Jr. – $40 million
Scarlett Johansson – $20 million
Chris Evans – $6.8 million
Jeremy Renner – $6.1 million
Chris Hemsworth – $5.4 million
Mark Ruffalo – $2.8 million
When you look at those figures, it’s no wonder the two-part Avengers: Infinity War is looking at a $1 billion budget.
