    Yeah, they can't do a wholesale recast, it would be a disaster. They're going to have to suck it up and pay real money, especially if the bit about RDJ going all band of brothers with the rest of the cast is true. Marvel's fucked if they piss him off.

    And I'm surprised Chris Hemsworth can sit down after the cornholing he got. Less than a mil for both Avengers and Thor? And an offer of only and extra $500k for A2? Does he look like a bitch? Then why you wanna fuck him like one, Marvel?

    I think it's because Hemsworth was relatively unknown before landing the Thor role, so maybe he's not trying to bite the hand that feeds him.

    RDJ can, though. He basically revived Marvel with Iron Man. I was surprised he got $50m. Awesome, really.

    Well Hemsworth is actually the one demanding more money and he and the other casts really hope that RDJ gets behind them because he really is their biggest leverage.

    I get the low pay for Thor- no one knew who he was. But the movie was successful and he was good in it. He should have gotten a better check for Avengers, which was also successful. Now Marvel has him in A2 and Thor 2, both of which can be reasonably expected to be blockbusters, and they're trying to dick him over? That's just cheap and shitty.

    I believe he signed a contract for Avengers when he signed up for Thor. Same goes for Thor 2. Meaning the pay was negotiated back then, before anyone knew these films would be so successful. He didn't have leverage to get higher pay for Avengers or Thor 2. It may not sound fair, but that's the contract he signed with them.

    Since he's no longer contracted past Thor 2, he's using this as a way for higher paychecks in the future.

    hemsworth should thank marvel for giving him the opportunity... he was a virtual unknown before this, and the studio probably paid top dollar for hopkins, rene russo, natalie portman and both of kat denning's bewbs. that being said, he does deserve to get more for avengers 2 as he proved to everyone he is great as thor and I don't think its easy to find a replacement, and disney earned enough money from avengers to buy their own country.

    oh, and finally watched im3... I definitely agree im3 > im2

    I watched Iron man 3 last over the weekend and I enjoyed it. :)

    Great action, funny and special effects.

    No, it wasn't.
    I wasn't too crazy about IM2, but it was still easily better than IM3. IM3 was fucking awful... I mean it was almost Michael-Bay-level awful. After seeing IM3 I'm suprised that its gotten as decent of reviews as it has.

    I think I should have watched all the trailers..

    Then not watched the movie. I'd be far happier.
