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.

Endangered Avengers: 3 Candidates For Death In Age Of Ultron

Oct 31 2014 5:35am CDT | Source: movie pilot

From the sounds of Joss Whedon's comments earlier this year, there's a very real chance that we're going to see an Avenger meet their maker (or, in the case of Thor, his dad, presumably) in Avengers: Age of Ultron.After all, Whedon revealed that his core philosophy for the movie would be “Death, death and death.” Which, no matter how you spin it, is going to be a bumpy, emotional ride - and the internet responded accordingly, with persistent rumors ever since suggesting th ...

Police in Auburn, Maine say that that the perpetrator entered the convenience store (coincidentally called Big Apple) and flashed a knife at the checkout clerk before demanding cash from the register.
