The 54-year-old actor made about $75 million in backend pay — the percentage of a film’s profits once released — after the release of 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, according to a report by The Hollywood Reporter. That film earned more than $2 billion at the worldwide box office.
Downey, who has starred as Iron Man since the release of his 2008 film, also earned $5 million for 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming for three days of work, the outlet reported.
The star will likely make around the same amount if not more for the release of Avengers: Endgame, according to the trade publication. The film has already earned more than $1.2 billion at the worldwide box office in its first week of release.
Downey Jr. isn’t the only star set to make some serious cash: THR also reports that Scarlett Johansson will be returning to her Black Widow character for a 2020 standalone film for which she is reportedly making around $20 million.
Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans were also able to renegotiate their Marvel contracts to place themselves within the earning range of $15 million to $20 million for Infinity War and Endgame, according to THR.
The movie has a three hour runtime and has already earned acclaim from critics and moviegoers. It currently holds a 95 percent “Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Avengers: Endgame is now in theaters.
