Robert Downey Jr. Took Home An Astounding Paycheck For 'The Avengers'

Last May, The Hollywood Reporter claimed Robert Downey Jr. was bringing home a big $50 million check—or larger—for his role in "The Avengers" after all bonuses and compensations were accounted.
In the upcoming May issue of GQ, the "Iron Man 3" actor admitted he indeed did receive that big of a payday with a smile and a simple, "Yeah."
"Isn't that crazy?" said Downey Jr. "They're so pissed. I can't believe it. I'm what's known as 'a strategic cost.' "

It's not a surprise that "Iron Man" actor Robert Downey Jr. would take home a big paycheck.
"The Avengers" went on to become the highest-grossing movie of the year, earning more than $1 billion at theaters worldwide.

However, compared to Downey Jr., his "Avengers" costars earned nowhere near his salary.
Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, and Mark Ruffalo reportedly earned between $2-3 million with bonuses, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Samuel L. Jackson and Scarlett Johansson were reported to earn $4-6 million.
Downey Jr. also hinted he may not be up for anymore "Iron Man" sequels. The injury he sustained on set which delayed production for the third film made him consider what else the 47-year-old actor wants to do with his career.

"It got me thinking about how big the message from your cosmic sponsor needs to be before you pick it up," said Downey Jr. "How many genre movies can I do? How many follow-ups to a successful follow-up are actually fun?"
Right now, he says he doesn't have a contract to do anything, whereas, for the past five years he's been signed.

However, he admitted it won't be easy to walk away.
"Here's the thing. At whatever point I'm done with this, I'm going to have a bit of a crisis, because I probably haven't even fully ingested how much I've enjoyed it, how much it's meant," said Downey Jr. "It so came out of kind of relative obscurity as this second-tier character from the Marvel universe, and I feel I was part of making it something more."

"Iron Man 3" hits theaters May 3.

Word on the street is that he's retiring as Iron Man in the Avengers 2 because of family reasons.

He should just appear in films for phase 3 and let thor and capt make it to their 3rd films and that way he can still be iron man for avengers 3

That's how RDJ made his money off Avengers. Instead of paying him up front, he gets a small cut. Keanu Reeves did the the same with Matrix 2 & 3.

yep. Ironman 1 could have easily flopped and none of this would've happened. Getting money off the back-end is the way to go if you believe in the plan. RDJ believed in Marvel so he won.
