Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios never officially comment on actors’ salaries. But insider Daniel Richtman reports that negotiations are currently underway between the studio and actor Ryan Reynolds. According to the insider, we will talk about several of the actor’s appearances in the films of the MCU. And if the contract is signed, the actor will become the highest-paid actor in the franchise. Reynolds himself confirmed that work has begun on a superhero film with his participation.
Last year, Forbes ranked six MCU actors in its list of the 100 Highest-Paid Actors in Hollywood. 24th on the list was taken by Chris Hemsworth with $ 76 million. Also on the list were Robert Downey Jr. (66 million), Bradley Cooper (57 million), Scarlett Johansson (56 million), Chris Evans (44 million), and Paul Rudd (41 million).
The first two parts of Deadpool were released in 2016 and 2018 when the rights to the character were still owned by Fox. Ryan Reynolds spearheaded the production of these films. In total, the films grossed over $ 700 million worldwide. Fans continue to hope for Deadpool III to come soon.
