"Infinity War" made more than $2 billion worldwide and "Endgame" earned more than $1.2 billion in its first weekend, so it's safe to say his final check will be massive.
Sources told the outlet that Downey Jr is estimated to have made at least United States dollars 75 million in salary from last year's blockbuster "Infinity War", which raked in over USD 2 billion at the global box office.
There's little denying the crowd-pleasing appeal of Avengers: Endgame, an absurdly epic finale to Marvel Studios' 22-film Infinity Saga, which delivers a fitting farewell to several of the franchise's most beloved heroes.
Downey Jr. gets backend pay, which means he gets a percentage of the film's box office success after it's released, according to THR.
Meanwhile, it's said Scarlett Johansson will earn $20 million for her standalone Black Widow movie, filming next year.
Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth are reported to have earned $20 million each for "Infinity War" and "Endgame".
He's gone on to appear in 10 other films as the billionaire playboy Tony Stark, though he was uncredited in The Incredible Hulk.
The star also negotiated a staggering $5 million a day for three days of work on the 2017 blockbuster, "Spider-Man: Homecoming".
Coming back to his professional front, Robert Downey Jr is now basking the success of Avengers: Endgame, which is all set to become the biggest hit of all-time. Now, imagine the numbers he'll rake in for Avengers: Endgame. The film also stars Tom Holland, Rami Malek, Ralph Fiennes, Michael Sheen, Emma Thompson and John Cena in key roles.
