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.

Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice Trailer Is Ready: When Can We See It?

Oct 24 2014 12:01pm CDT | Source: movie fanatic

It if appears that Marvel and DC Comics are going tit for tat in the movie wars of late, you’d be right. As soon as it was announced that Robert Downey Jr. would be in Captain America 3, Warner’s and DC responded and released their full superhero slate through 2020. And it’s one that includes solo movies for Wonder Woman, Aquaman and a Green Lantern reboot. And now merely days after Marvel released the highly anticipated Aven ...

The Insane 'Avengers' Prop Marvel Let Robert Downey Jr. Bring Home

Oct 21 2014 10:20am CDT | Source: movies.com

If you were an actor starring in some big, flashy superhero movie, of course you're gonna want to take something home with you--if only to prove to your grandchildren (and great-grandchildren) that you were, like, totally cool back in the day. When it comes to Marvel, though, they don't like props leaving the set. I've personally been on the set of four Marvel movies, and when the taking-home-souvenirs question inevitably comes up (it always does), the answer is...n ...

Marvel Gave Robert Downey Jr. the 'A' from Stark Tower in 'Avengers'

Oct 20 2014 4:16pm CDT | Source: First Showing

Many lead stars of the big screen have taken mementos from the sets of various films they've worked on. It's a nice token to remember that specific time in your life. Sometimes they steal them, other times they pay for them, but sometimes the production company just decides to give them to the stars. However, we're betting that no one has a movie memento as cool as what Robert Downey Jr. received from the set of The Avengers, co ...

Robert Downey Jr. Says CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 Is “Gonna Be Huge” Thus Putting Hugeness Doubts to Rest

Oct 20 2014 3:23pm CDT | Source: Collider

I enjoy Marvel’s constant change-ups with fan expectations.  Immediately following Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it was looking like Captain America 3 would be driven by the hunt for Bucky.  That could still be the case in terms of a baseline or prologue, but what Marvel is really going for is setting up a big plot arc with Civil War (a.k.a “Thanos Who?”), and they managed to nab Robert Downey Jr. as a co-lead.  There are plenty of reasons to be excit ...

This week in "Robert Downey Jr. is incredible" news, the actor received a grand-scale gift from Marvel last week: the 30-foot-tall 'A' that was left on the ruins of Stark Enterprises at the end of The Avengers, to signal the coming of the Avengers Tower. RDJ, like many Hollywood actors and actresses, collects set pieces as memoirs from his films. Unlike Ben Affleck, who was told that taking home the Batsuit from Batman v.
