The silver lining of the Sony hack has been the light shed on pay inequality between male and female costars.
Jennifer Lawrence in particular has been quite vocal about receiving equal pay after finding out she made less than her male counterparts in American Hustle.
But there’s one huge franchise where equality is already here — The Avengers!
Obviously, no one makes as much as Robert Downey Jr., who made his deal after launching the Cinematic Universe’s flagship with Iron Man back in 2008. There’s no way Disney lets ANYONE have RDJ backend money again!
But aside from their resident genius billionaire playboy philanthropist, it seems the Marvel movies do actually have a more fair pay model.
Our question is, is it enough??
We mean, aside from RDJ, ScarJo is probably the biggest star in the movies. She alone among the six leads has proven she can open the hell out of a non-franchise film with the worldwide success of Lucy.
Shouldn’t she be getting a little more? Or at least her own movie for gosh sakes??
What do YOU think??
