Robert Downey Jr. News
fb.indiewire.com – It was about a month ago when something a little bit ugly came out from behind the smiling, mega-successful Marvel -- their talent weren't quite happy. Specifically, the talent they need for "The Avengers 2" were beginning to bite. With Robert Downey Jr.'s contract up for Marvel, and with the news he bagged a cool $50 million from "The Avengers" thanks to a nice little back-end arrangement, the cast members on the superhero sequel have begun to ask for more than the peanuts Marvel usually shells out, and even more, RDJ is supporting his colleagues in getting what's owed to them. 2 weeks 14 hours ago via theothersenhman

Robert Downey Jr And 'Avengers' Cast Ready To Rumble With Stingy Marvel Over Sequel Money And Strong-Arming
deadline.com – EXCLUSIVE: Robert Downey Jr is set for another huge payday from a mega-hit Marvel movie, this time Iron Man 3. I’ve learned he’s already made $35 million from the actioner which grossed $680 million worldwide in its first 12 days.

I certainly hope it’s going down as well over there as it is over here in the UK. On the occasion of this big release, Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige shared a call with Superhero Hype. 6 weeks 6 days ago via brucelee
