Avengers: Endgame Directors Pitched Tony Stark’s Story To Robert Downey Jr

Marvel Studios

And with the tremendous success of the final Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movie, "Avengers: Endgame", Iron Man himself is on pace to make the biggest salary of his long career. Sure, it's never likely to see the light of day - and the whopping three-hour runtime squeezed in everything it probably needed to - but there are still Avengers: Endgame deleted scenes out there that were filmed but, for one reason or another, never made it into the final cut.

By all appearances, the short clip was filmed surreptitiously with a smart phone during the making of Endgame, which just blew away every significant box office record with Hollywood's first billion-dollar opening weekend.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, "multiple knowledgable sources" say that Downey's fee for Infinity War was "at least" $75m (£57.4m). A backend deal means an actor gets a percentage of box office grosses.

THR reports that Scarlett Johannson, who plays Black Widow and is returning for a 2020 stand-alone film is earning $20 million for starring and producing. The film directed by Joe and Anthony Russo was made on a budget of $500 million and it is now ruling the box office worldwide.

Robert Downey Jr. made his first Marvel movie in 2008 and since then has been raking in the cash.

Fans will also be seeing more of 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-launch streaming service.

Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans were also able to renegotiate their Marvel contracts to place themselves within the earning range of $15 million to $20 million for Infinity War and Endgame, according to THR. Maybe the next "Black Panther" movie can do it?
