Want to know who is the best paid Marvel Superhero?
It’s time to get a little personal and look at how the actors who entertain us so gracefully behind the Marvel masks are being compensated. Yes, we will be revealing the best paid Marvel superhero. More specifically, we will be looking at the salaries of the Avengers, seeing as everyone is so excited about the Age of Ultron movie coming out this year. Who knows, maybe you’ll be inspired to win some money on our fantastic Avenger slot games?
Let’s start at the bottom of the payroll with Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner). Considering he had the least amount of screen time in the first Avengers movie he was probably very happy with his payment. Hawkeye received between $2 and $4 million for only 13 minutes of face. Now that’s the type of job all of us would like.
The almighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is worth about $12 million at the moment and is probably one of the most popular Thor actors to date. He had double the screen time compared to Hawkeye at 26 minutes and he also received something between $2 and $4 million. One has to wonder if he made some noise about this, although it’s still a great salary for less than 30 minutes of work.
With a net-worth of $10 million the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) is building up a nice fortune. He took over the role from Edward Norton and when the first Avengers movie hit the screens he pretty much stole the show. Fans will be glad to know that the new Hulk has signed a deal with Marvel for no less than 6 movies. However, his pay for his first movie also ranged between $2 and $4 million for 28 minutes of “Incredible” screen time.
The former Fantastic Four hero has traded his human torch ability for the shield of Captain America (Chris Evans) and he is also worth $10 million. He had the most screen time at 37.42 minutes in the Avengers movie, although he didn’t get the salary for it. This could change as the Captain America movies keep raking in money, but he had to settle for same amount as those mentioned above.
We haven’t calculated the exact screen time Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) had, but he isn’t worth $150 million for nothing. His name alone is enough to sell movies and even if he only appeared for 5 minutes it’s worth the $4 – $6 million he was paid. I also doubt that any of the other actors would have the guts to go up against the badass that is Samuel L. Jackson.
She is one of the sexiest superheroes to step into danger, and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) is living comfortably with a net worth of $35 million. The reputation she has built up in her short career is nothing short of amazing. How much did she get paid? Well she was visible for about 33 minutes and also enjoyed a $4 – $6 million salary. Rumor has it she managed to sign a $20 million deal for Age of Ultron. We all agree we’ll pay a lot more to see her heat up the movie.
Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) might play a billionaire playboy, but if he keeps working with Marvel it won’t be long until this becomes a reality. His net worth is $80 million and thanks to his successful relationship with Marvel he got paid no less than $50 million for his 37 minutes in the Avengers. Nobody is disputing his part in making Iron Man one of the most successful stand-alone superhero movies not once, not twice, but three times.
There you have the dirt on the best paid Marvel superhero. If you would like to join the ranks of the riches then step into your superhero shoes and jump on our Avenger slot game.
