Dayuuuuum, Robbie! That is one AMIABLE salary!

Now that The Avengers has already surpassed the coveted $1 Billion box-office sales mark, Robert Downey Jr.’s ultimate paycheck from the film could reach $50 million!

And yet every other star - even big names Samuel L. Jackson & Scarlett Johansson - will only make about $2 - $6 million!

Mere pennies.

So why the mega $$$ for Tony Stark??

Apparently, after Iron Man’s surprise success back in 2008, Rob and his agent/lawyer team assembled and twerked his contract with Marvel so that Robert would have a stake in the earnings of any future film in which he portrays Tony Stark.

His cut is rumored to be in the 5-7% range. And with MORE Iron Man/Avengers flicks heading into production, well… let's just say he can Scrooge McDuck the HELL out of that shi*!

Savvy negotians, Robert! Way to ensure your eternal wealth… maybe you can build yourself a REAL Iron Man costume with all the mulah!

    Would The Avengers be the hit that it is now if RDJ hadn't laid the foundations through both the Iron Man movies? He is definitely worth every cent of that $50 Million. Pay the man, I say, and pronto! I refuse to even think of anyone else as Iron Man, and he was half the reason I went to see Avengers!
