Robert Downey Jr Making 10 Times More Than Avengers Co-Stars

Robert Downey Jr is raking in the cash after the Iron Man star has reportedly picked up around 10 times more than his Avengers co-stars.

The hugely popular Avengers Assemble continues to makie millions worldwide and Robert Downey Jr could receive up to $50 million after his stint as Iron Man, which is a staggering 10 times higher than the amounts received by any of his five co-stars in the film.

We bet Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L Jackson were less than impressed with the news.

Avengers Assemble is a huge box office hit, grossing more than $1 billion and well on course to become the third most successful cinematic production of all time behind “Avatar" and "Titanic."

Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo took home relatively low salaries of between $2 million and $3 million, while Samuel L Jackson and Scarlett Johansson made about twice that.

And the huge payout is apparently all down to a deal the Sherlock Holmes star made after the success of the Iron Man film, which made a massive $585 million. This prompted a promise from the studio to pay Rob five per cent of the box office take for any future movie in which he played the character. This turned out to be a very smart move by Rob!
