Avengers Business Cards - Just because
AVENGERS (V5) #01-09
There was nothing. Followed by everything. Swirling, burning specks of creation that circled live-giving suns. And then…
We raced to the light.

We just reported that Robert Downey Jr is in talks with Marvel to return for “The Avengers 2” and “The Avengers 3.” But the actor isn’t even discussing “Iron Man 4,” and we may now know why.
Downey earned somewhere between $50 million and $80 million on “The Avengers,” and has already earned over $35 million for his work on “Iron Man 3,” but his “The Avengers” co-stars aren’t making anything close to that. In fact, most of the actors are being paid around $200,000, far less than they would earn on any other movie.
Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth received only a $500,000 pay increase for returning for the “Captain America” and “Thor” sequels. And unlike Downey, the actors will earn only $500,000 more if their movies break the $500 million mark at the box office.
Despite having a contract, Hemsworth considered backing out of “Thor 2,” because he earned $5 million working on “Snow White and the Huntsman” and Marvel isn’t offering anywhere near that, despite the fact that “Thor” and “The Avengers” are massive franchises. Scarlett Johansson is also fed up and isn’t willing to take a pay-cut to return for “The Avengers 2.”
Marvel is known for low salaries and replacing any actor who doesn’t accept the company’s way of doing business. In fact, the studio has already threatened to replace Hemsworth. But Marvel doesn’t want to replace Downey at this point and it seems that the actor is using that leverage to fight for his co-stars by threatening not to return for “Iron Man4” and possibly any other Marvel film unless they all get appropriate pay raises.
what if in avengers 2 they just make a lot of obvious references to magneto being pietro and wanda’s dad like ” oh our dad has a really magnetic personality”
I’ve learned Marvel already has threatened to sue or recast when contracts and/or options are challenged. That prompted a few cast members to respond, “Go ahead.”
Joss Whedon’s favourite brother and sister act have been confirmed.
Joss Whedon has made some vague hints about Avengers 2 saying that “I’ve got these two characters, two of my favorite characters from the comic book, a brother-sister act. They’re in the movie.”
Stuff like this always interests me because it boils down to a rights issue. Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch are the brother-sister duo I’d imagine that Whedon is referring to and they are the children of Magneto and both mutants. FOX owns the rights to all of the X-Men and anything mutant related so I’m really curious how that would work to include Magento’s kids in an Avengers sequel.
