Joss Whedon Demands Robert Downey Jr. Return For Avengers 2

joss whedon robert downey jr avengers 2 negotiation

Joss Whedon did an amazing job with The Avengers, helping it become the third highest grossing film of all time.

But the director says the sequel just isn't worth making without Robert Downey Jr.! He says:

"He is Iron Man. He is Iron Man in the way that Sean Connery was James Bond. I have no intention of making Avengers 2 without him, nor do I think I'll be called upon to do that."

But RDJ hasn't signed on yet! And considering how much he got paid for Iron Man 3, there's a fair chance Marvel won't be able to afford him much longer!

So will Joss cave and make the sequel without him should it come to that? The director says:

Of course, nobody is citing it specifically, but we all know that both the NFL and the NFLRA are back at the negotiating table after the Green Bay/Seattle game last night, which resulted in the 'worst call in NFL history.'

Regardless of the reason, we're happy to hear they're back at it. It's time to get the professional refs back on the field one way or another!!

robert-downey-jr-50-million-avengers.jpg

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

Girls Gone Wild Creator Joe Francis Threatens Madonna With Legal Action Over Trademark Usage In New Song!

Uh-oh! This is not good!

Joe Francis, who created the Girls Gone Wild series, has slapped Madonna with a cease-and-desist letter over the usage of his franchise name as a title of one her new songs on MDNA, and is threatening legal action if she does not comply to certain terms!

According to the letter, which asserts that the pop icon is trying to get a "free ride on the valuable consumer goodwill and brand recognition" of the Girls Gone Wild trademark, she must negotiate a licensing agreement for it usage, holding accountable the number of times she's already used it, and she must not perform the song during the Super Bowl halftime show!

What?! That last part seems seriously ridiculous!

Apparently, Madge has to answer by 5pm PST today before legal action is taken.

What do U think? Does Joe have a case?

Wait - wasn't there already another one with Steve Carell?

Jim Carrey is reportedly in talks to reprise his role in Bruce Almighty for a proposed sequel, with Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel set to write it!

Although nothing is official, we're hearing that the film is expected to be a starring vehicle for the actor, and let's face it - he seriously needs one!

But doesn't this feel a little a lot tired? We think so!

Seriously - how many times can one man magically receive the powers of God?

What do U think?? Will U check it out??

Matt Lauer Doesn't Want To Leave Today…He Just Wants More Money!

Filed under: TV NewsBusiness Blitz

Not so fast!

Although reports circulated that Matt Lauer was interested in leaving The Today SHow, sources close to the anchor have revealed the announcement was only a move to secure himself a pretty hefty raise - to $25 million a year!

Not a bad negotiation tactic - he waited right until Meredith Veira said she was calling it quits!

Right now he makes a pretty comfortable $17 mill, but we imagine if he continues playing his cards right he can get it bumped up!

What do U think?? Should Matt get a raise??
