Robert Downey Jr. to Earn $50 Million from 'The Avengers'

| by Crazy Days and Nights

Apparently Robert Downey Jr. has a very good agent. Not only did he make more money than all his Avengers co-stars, it wasn't even close. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Robert is set to make about $50M from all his bonuses and back end deals and side deals and just his salary from the movie. The rest of the cast?

About $2M each with Scarlett Johansson and Samuel Jackson getting about $4M. This is worse than the beat down Tara Reid took in the American Reunion salary war. It is not like the rest of the cast is not in the movie. $2M is nothing to sneeze at but you know before there is a sequel, some people are going to want to get paid.
