Avengers cast demand sequel pay rise

May 8 2013, 10:14am CDT | by

Marvel is reportedly in tense negotiations with the cast of 'The Avengers 2'.

The Disney-owned movie studio has yet to secure key actors including Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth for the sequel to last year's smash hit superhero blockbuster - which grossed $1.5 billion worldwide - as they are hoping to land big money deals, reports Deadline.

'Iron Man 3' star Downey recently confirmed he was paid $50 million, consisting of an upfront payment and a percentage of the film's box office profits, for 'The Avengers' and is now reportedly spearheading efforts for his cast mates to negotiate better deals for the follow-up film after some of them received just $200,000 for the first flick.

A source said: ''He's the only guy with real power in this situation, and balls of steel, too. He's already sent a message that he's not going to work for a place where they treat his colleagues like s**t.''

Marvel, meanwhile, has allegedly responded by threatening to sue actors who have long-term contracts for multiple movies which have not been fulfilled, as well as threatening to recast roles.

Lead stars including Downey, Hemsworth, Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson are still in negotiations for the movie, while it's thought 'Captain America' actor Chris Evans signed on for the flick when he agreed to make 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier', which is due next year.

‘The Judge’ Trailer #2: Robert Downey Jr. Upholds the Law

Sep 17 2014 5:08pm CDT | Source: Screen Rant

Robert Downey Jr. takes a break from the super-heroics, as well as crime-solving, in the upcoming The Judge, a legal drama that will arrive in theaters this fall. The movie features RDJ in the role of Hank Palmer, a big city lawyer whose success can be attributed to his willingness to use his highly-refined knowledge of the law to protect his well-paying clients… regardless of how guilty they might be. However, when his judge father (Robert Duvall) is accused of a serious crime ...

There’s nothing quite like a death in the family to bring the living members of the family back together. Or at least that seems to be a running theme at the movies this year, between Are You Here, This Is Where I Leave You, and now the new The Judge trailer. Robert Downey Jr. leads the drama as hotshot attorney Hank Palmer, who returns to his childhood home after the death of his mother.
