According to Comic Book Movie, the one that got the fattest check among the Avengers is no other than Iron Man himself- Robert Downey Jr. He got a relatively huge amount of $40 million for portraying the billionaire superhero.

The site also noted that Robert Downey Jr. was hailed ‘the highest paid actor’ by Forbes two years ago, and the revelation seems to be expected.

Also, the site was able to reveal the Avengers’ salaries as well. Hollywood’s finest actress- Scarlett Johansson earned $20 million for playing as The Black Widow. The remaining superheroes- Chris Evans as Captain America, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as Hulk earned $6.9 M, $6.1 M, $5.4 M and $2.8 M respectively.
That's like $80 million on just the "Avengers team" alone.
I'm assuming Morena Baccarin and T.J. Miller got peanuts lol.
Reynolds got less than The Hulk who was barely in the movie, and the parts that had him, more than half of it was CGI.

Reynolds was initially paid $2.7 million for his role as the smart-arsed Wade Wilson/Deadpool, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, he’ll make more than $13.8 million once bonuses are factored in.

I read somewhere Reynolds actually took a cut in up-front pay just because he really wanted to get the movie made.

My greatest fear is that other studios will merely see the "R-rated superhero movie" as the next success bandwagon they can hop on, and we'll start seeing more raunched-out versions of everyone else... whether it suits the character or not.

How many will understand, superhero movies live and die on how faithful they are to the originals that the existing fan base already knows and loves... and Deadpool is doing so well, not because of the adult humour, but because it absolutely nails the character?

true... pretty much see that already happening at comic conventions.

Damn, my son watched the movie last week and told me today that there's this scene that was filmed in my old stomping grounds, as in the actual building where I grew up. Now I have to go see it. I know every inch of that neighbourhood. The wooden steps that leads up to a blocked section or something like that, sounds very familiar.
