Marvel’s Casting Problems

Marvel’s Iron Man 3 just came out which means Thor 2 and Captain America 2 are both next on the slate but the word on the street is that several of the cast members are not pleased with their contracts for the upcoming Avengers sequel. It’s been well noted that Tony Stark himself, Robert Downey Jr made a whopping fifty million for the first Avengers film while most of the remaining leads made only around two hundred thousand dollars. Actor Chris Hemsworth is one of the actors who isn’t pleased with his contract seeing as the role of the thunder god Thor requires him to be on a special diet and working out all day. It also costs him other roles in films. Clearly when Hemsworth signed up for the first film he wasn’t a house hold name, now things might be different.

While most of the actors are willing to renegotiate and go back to work Marvel has made it known that if they don’t they will sue for breach of contract and possibly recast, if you really don’t think they will then ask Edward Norton. Meanwhile the rest of the star studded cast which includes Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johanson, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo will expect Downey to have their backs to help them get more money. I don’t see why Marvel can’t give them a raise. The first Avengers film did cross a billion dollars. Share your thoughts in the comments section.
