The specialized portal CelebrityNetWorth.com reports that the sum amounts to $ 345.5 million.
Gone are those days when addictions from Robert Downey Jr. they had cut him off from the big Hollywood productions. He was the problem boy in the movie industry, therefore the insurers used to require a millionaire deposit to the studies that wanted to hire him and these they simply gave up their services.
Your good friend Mel Gibson was the first producer to paid (out of his own pocket) that bail for RDJ, as he is often called in the film industry, to participate in The Singing Detective (El detective cantante, 2003). The movie it was a total failure in criticism and box office, since its $ 8 million budget only generated $ 338,174 in collection.
Nevertheless, Robert was able to finish filming without drug problems, and was even nominated for a Satellite Award., which caused other studios to begin to show interest in him and to hire him again. Gibson himself repeated his confidence by requesting him as the protagonist of Gothika (2003), along with Halle Berry and Penelope Cruz, film that was a box office success.
Since then, the actor born 56 years ago in New York has achieved a gradual ascent in a new phase of his career, which ended up exploding as a bucket when in 2007 he was selected to play Tony Stark / Iron Man in the film that would mean the takeoff of a nascent Marvel Studios saga: Iron Man (2008).
Since then, everything has been success, fame and, above all, money for Robert Downey Jr., whose fortune is estimated at more than $ 300 million, perhaps little money for Tony Stark, but an immeasurable sum for any mere mortal.
The first contract with Marvel Studios in Iron Man was overly cautious on fees (no one knew how the film would be received by audiences!) as it only meant a salary of $ 500,000 for that production that had a budget of $ 140 million, but raised $ 585.2 million.
Subsequent deals were much more generous to the man whose talent and charisma drove much of the success of the first phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), which concluded with Avengers: Endgame (2019). Here is a record of how those juicy checks were, according to the portal CelebrityNetWorth.com, which reports a total revenue of $ 345.5 million for all these productions that generated income according to the behavior of the ticket office.
Iron Man (2008): $ 500.000.
Iron Man II (2010): $ 10 million.
Iron Man III (2013): $ 75 million.
The Avengers (2012): $ 50 million ($ 10 million base plus $ 40 million bonus)
Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015): $ 40 million.
Capitan America: Civil War (2016): $ 40 million.
Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017): $ 15 million.
Avengers: Infinity War (2018): $ 40 million.
Avengers: Endgame (2019): $ 75 million.
