There’s a new rumor from Bleeding Cool about the budget for Avengers: Infinity War Part One and Avengers: Infinity War Part Two, including a claim about Robert Downey, Jr.’s paycheck for these two movies. We already know of the famously profitable deal Downey worked out with Marvel during Iron Man. He earned $80 million (not including additional backend pay) from Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War, and he was rumored to have made $75 million off Iron Man 3.
Reportedly, the combined budget for both Avengers: Infinity War movies is $1 billion dollars, of which $400 million goes to the screenwriter, director, producers and principal actors. Of the portion of that $400 million which goes to the actors, Robert Downey, Jr. will allegedly receive half of it, or something under $200 million.
