They claimed the movie didn't break even until it reached $1.1 billion? Yeah, okay.

Strike 1- Terrance Howard
Strike 2- Edward Norton

Do not make strike 3 Robert Downey Jr. Marvel.

Think of renegotiating with the "Avengers" as a video game

Avengers- Normal
Avengers 2- Hard
Avengers 3- INSANE

It's going to get to a point when Marvel can't wait to get rid of these actors because their pay rate is incomprehensible.

There are plenty of Avengers waiting in the wings. StarFox, Dr. Druid, Moondragon, Rage, The Forgotten One, Swordsman, and Triathalon to name but a few first stringers.

For some reason, no one ever remembers The Forgotten One.

Actually, he's the next-to-last member of the Avengers to appear. Only Thor shows up later in the film.

Interesting piece, but 'twas ever thus. Hope they can negotiate a deal. But can't say I'd especially miss anyone, bar RDJ maybe. And even he's not irreplaceable.

Re: Avengers 2 News, Rumors, Etc. Pictures until release...

Well that was fast

http://www.superherohype.com/news/ar...jects-revealed

The Hollywood Reporter says that the actor met with Kevin Feige and many other executives last night to begin laying out the groundwork for his return. Insiders say that the negotiations looked to his return as the character in the upcoming Avengers 2 and a third "Avengers" film. A fourth Iron Man film was said to not be included in the talks as it is unclear if Downey Jr. is interested in another stand-alone feature as the character.

Would Marvel be okay with ending the Iron Man franchise if RDJ continued showing up in the Avengers movies?

No, they'll want both.

Agreed. Just watch Iron Man 5 be Charlie Sheen or someone cheaper.

Every time RDJ asks for more money to appear in a sequel, the people at Marvel Studios die a little inside!

Yes, but being the last of the Earthbound mains to appear means that the movie only really gets going, or "basically starts", when he shows up. Jarod may have misremembered a bit, but he warn't wrong.

I'm surprised Hemsworth isn't already contracted for Avengers 2; he's only done three movies so far, and IIRC they signed Evans to six movies at about the same time.

Robert Downey Jr even said that he might be considered a "Strategic cost"


GQ asked Downey about THR's $50 million number, with the publication reporting Downey smiled broadly and answered "yeah" when asked if that was about right.

"Isn't that crazy?" he said. "They're so pissed. I can't believe it. I'm what's known as a 'strategic cost.'"

That sounds so Tony Stark LOL


I can just imagine Marvel executives pulling their hair out. He has them in a frenzy

Executives- He said yes?!? Can we even afford him?!

Executive 2- I don't know!

IRON MAN 4-Starring Don Cheadle as Rhodey Rhodes. Hey it worked in the comics for a while.

Isn't it pretty rare to pay someone that much up front? I thought they all get back end deals, taking home the gross profits.
