How much money 5 Marvel superhero actors got paid, including a $5 million salary for Brie Larson in 'Captain Marvel

Published by Business Insider on Thu, 14 Feb 2019


On March 8, the Marvel Cinematic Universe will gets its first standalone female superhero movie when "Captain Marvel" hits the big screen. And its star Brie Larson will be walking away from the movie with more than Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, and Chadwick Boseman earned on their first MCU movies.In a Hollywood Reporter profile on Larson, the trade revealed Larson will earn $5 million to star. Disney is historically stingy in paying its actors, especially their first time out of the gate in a Marvel movie, so props to Larson's agent.Just how tight can the studio be with its cash'Here's how much 5 other actors have been paid during their time in the MCU:SEE ALSO:Why Disney rarely pays movie stars huge salariesChris Hemsworth ' $150,000 for 'Thor' (2011)It makes sense that this Chris got so little. The actor didn't have many credits to his name when he came on to play Odin's son in the first movie. But he's got leverage now. Hemsworth has been earning $15 million paydays since "Thor: Ragnarok."Robert Downey Jr. ' $500,000 for 'Iron Man' (2008)Yeah, Marvel got RDJ cheap in 2008 (following box-office milestones for the first "Iron Man," Downey's end pay was $2.5 million).

And he has been rewarded since, earning $50 million for the first "Avengers" movie, $80 million for "Avengers: Age of Ultron," and $10 million for the handful of scenes in "Spider-Man: Homecoming."Chris Evans ' $1 million for 'Captain America: The First Avenger' (2011)Evans got more than his fellow Chris on his first outing because he had better name recognition when he agreed to play Steve Rogers. In fact, he had already played a superhero. He was Johnny Storm in the early 2000s version of the "Fantastic Four" franchise. And since "Captain America: Civil War," like Hemsworth, he's been scoring $15 million checks.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
