Will Robert Downey Jr. Become the Best Paid Actor Ever?

robert-downey-jr Rumor has it that Robert Downey Jr. could become the best paid actor in the history of Hollywood with an incredible $100 million pay. If he and Marvel Studios reach an agreement for the actor to reprise the role of Iron Man/Tony Stark in The Avengers sequels, Robert will be the first actor to get a $100 million deal.

Reportedly, his agents are already in talks with Marvel executives to negotiate a new deal which will also include an increase on the percentage of box office receipts. People from Marvel┬ádidn’t┬álike it when Downey revealed that he got $50 million for his role in The Avengers. The actor told GQ magazine: ”Isn’t that crazy? They are so p***ed. I can’t believe it either. I’m what is known as a strategic cost.”

Iron-Man-3-Robert-Downey-Jr.The president of the studios Kevin Feige allegedly wants to see the 48-year-old star in the sequels but that he would also consider some more affordable options. However, according to movie analyst Doug Creutz, replacing Downey would cause $1 billion loss in the box office. A source said: ”Robert is 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.”
