According to a report by The Hollywood Reporter, the 54-year-old actor made around $75 million in for “Infinity War” because of a very unique financial arrangement he reportedly made with Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige.
Downey Jr. gets backend pay which means he gets a percentage of the film’s box office success after it’s released, according to THR. “Infinity War” made more than $2 billion worldwide and “Endgame” has already earned more than $1.2 billion in its first weekend, so it’s safe to say his final check will be massive.
The star also negotiated a staggering $5 million a day for three days of work on the 2017 blockbuster, “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”
Meanwhile, Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Chris Evans (Captain America) reportedly renegotiated their salaries for “Infinity War” and “Endgame” and are both making between $15 to $20 million per movie.
Fans will also be seeing more Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier) and Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) who have new deals for TV series on Disney’s soon-to-launched streaming service.
There’s also discussion about Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther) and Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange) returning in sequels to their original movies and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” which is set to starting filming in 2020.
