Robert Downey, The Ironman

Although the figures have not been confirmed by either Robert Downey or Marvel, the media agencies still believe that the figures are right since they were revealed by several inside sources. However, the figures have risen from when he first starred as Iron Man.
How it all Began…
Initially, the actor was paid $500,000 and was considered to be a very decent pay given that he was yet to have made a career for himself at the time. Some even consider him to be lucky for getting as much as he did for a rookie.
He performed exceptionally well and met up with Marvel’s level of expectation. His performance made him a name and generated a lot of fan base for Marvel, and that was indeed the beginning of great things for Robert Downey. He was able to use his performance as leverage for Iron Man 2.

But since this mercurial rise, the ensuring movies have not seen him land a pay higher than the $75 million, and it is expected that he would get around that amount of money for the Avengers End Game movie too.
