^^^^^^^^^^^^^

There really is no need for a HTTM2. Wasnt the first one bad enough?


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Shane Black doing a Doc Savage movie sounds awesome. It should have the same detective feel as Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Should be great. A 1994 Val Kilmer would be perfect for the role too. Chris Hemsworth was the first to pop into my mind for current big actors. Bradley Cooper, Jon Hamm(if they go a little older), or maybe a Armie Hammer would be fine.

Money always causes problems especially when studios are being cheap

Is he seriously upset that he's not getting 70-80 million for one movie. It's absurdly high to get paid 50 million for one. He shouldn't get that much. The Avengers budget was only 220 million. RDJ is a greedy prick if he seriously wants a third of the movies budget.


He has a point. IM3 is on its way to over a billion world wide. Either give him 50 million+, or give him big points on the back end. Which do you think would be best for Disney? Definitely the 50 million up front. Otherwise kill off Iron Man or bring in Dominic Cooper, who would be just as good, and has already played the elder Stark. Could easily be explained.

Plus, from the sounds of the article, it seems like Downy is leading the charge for all cast members, and not just himself. Doesnt seem greedy to me. Marvel looks like the bad guys if this is true.


Well, look at it from a business angle. Due to this, the budget for the next one is going to be a lot more than the first. Sure it will definitely exceed it's budget and probably make more than the first but it's called the movie business for a reason. Marvel isn't exactly the bad guys their just trying to make as much of a profit as they can. It doesn't say who made 200k in the Avengers. I guarantee it wasn't any of the main characters. It was probably Clark Gregg (Coulsen). If a person makes 50 mil on a movie I would call that being greedy. Christian Bale made 15 million for TDKR. 15!!! RDJ shouldn't be making more money than Bale. Yet he gets more than 3 times that.

The budget cant be that much more that close to 300 mil. Plus you dont have to market the film as much, because its predecessor made over 1.5 billion. The movie will sell itself.

The three IM3 movies have made a total of 1.9 billion dollars, and the third just came out. The Batman trilogy made 2.4 billion. Add in the fact that RDJ is the major driving force from The Avengers, and you have to come to the conclusion that Bale's representatives need to be fired. Plus, I found that RDJ only made 500K for the first Iron Man. 12.5 mil for the second. He made the movies what they are. He deserves every penny.

Also I found some numbers from other actors. Johnny Depp made 250 million so far from the Pirates franchise. Jack Nicholson made 60 million for his role as the Joker, and Tom Cruise made 75 million for Mission Impossible. 50 million for the biggest actor in the biggest movie of the decade isnt breaking the bank.

Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Likely To Split

http://variety.com/2013/biz/news/legendary-warner-bros-likely-to-split-exclusive-1200472600/


Quote:
Positioning his company for a potential divorce with Warner Bros., Legendary chairman Thomas Tull has entertained conversations with a number of potential studio suitors, including Universal Pictures, Sony Pictures and 20th Century Fox. Legendary is obligated to give Warner the first right of negotiation.

After producing an enviable number of blockbusters that included “Batman Begins” and “The Dark Knight” and the “Hangover” series, the partnership between Legendary and Warner has grown strained. Much has changed for both Legendary and Warner Bros. since the partnership’s infancy and insiders say that Tull’s more hands-on approach to establishing Legendary’s own brand has added to the tension at WB, particularly with Jeff Robinov, president of the motion pictures group. The relationship lost one of its stewards with 2011′s forced departure of studio chief Alan Horn.

WB’s recently anointed chairman Kevin Tsujihara has met with Tull to try and salvage the relationship, but so far to little or no avail, according to sources close to the situation.

Tsujihara must balance Legendary’s desire to grow and manage its own brand with the needs of his own studio.Going forward, Tull wants even more say in the marketing and release dates of the movies in which Legendary is and would be partnered, which may not set well with WB executives.


That's kind of a bummer. They've made great movies together. WB should just give Thomas Tull a little more control like he wants.

Depp, Cruise and Nicholson have all been more bankable actors than RDJ. RDJ isn't really the box office draw the Depp and Cruise are and Nicholson was. Since Iron Man he's done mostly movies that have already had established fan bases (Marvel, Sherlock Holmes, Todd Phillips coming off the Hangover). Depp and Cruise can turn original ideas or stories with smaller fan bases into hits (recently: Alice in Wonderland, Sweeney Todd, Public Enemies for Depp and Oblivion, Jack Reacher, Knight and Day, Valkyrie for Cruise). Cruise is gold at the box office and deserves his dough. Depp isn't as much of a sure shot however I guarantee every upcoming Pirates movie will score over $1 billion. Lone Ranger will probably make $500-600+ million too. Plus, Depp doesn't get wasn't given that all of that $250 mil up front. He got incentives based on the earnings of the movies and from what I've found it's more like $350 mil.

Lone Ranger will probably make $500-600+ million too.


But isnt RDJ doing the same thing as the guys you mentioned? He turned the B Marvel Character, basically a Batman clone, into the biggest box office superhero this side of Batman. He did the same thing with Sherlock Holmes. Before his Holmes movies, no one cared about the literary character, but since his huge hits, weve seen two hit tv shows about the same character.

Depp wasnt a bankable star until Pirates, much like RDJ. He was doing off the wall movies like From Hell, Blow, Chocolate, and The Ninth Gate. He didnt become a 100 mil actor in movies like you mentioned, until after Pirates.

Cruise is Cruise, one of the biggest movie stars ever, but for a time in the 2000s, he was toxic. MI3, Lions for Lambs, Knight and Day and Valkyrie were all disappointments at the domestic box office. MI4 really brought him back somewhat, and really made him that mega star again.

Nicholson making 60 million in 1989 is like making 150 mil for a movie today. Thats just unheard of, especially with the way movies were in the 80s-90s. It wasnt the multibillion dollar property that it is now.

If anyone deserved 50 million for a movie, then its RDJ, but not just any movie, a Iron Man movie. He has proven to be a billion dollar asset as this character throughout 4 movies, and Im sure that we will see huge independent projects now that his contract is over and he can do his Perry Mason, Pinocchio, and other Todd Phillips movies.

Downey, Jr MADE Tony Stark a bankable franchise and future incarnations of the character will be under a ginormous shadow. Bale is another in a long line of actors that have played Batman, and while arguably the best so far (not IMO), there isn't unanimous acclaim stating he is the definitive Batman. This is not a knock on Bale whatsoever; it just shows how RDJ has been the cornerstone for Marvel Studios. I don't see how anyone can argue his points on the package so to speak. That's what Nicholson had on Batman back in the day. Cruise and Depp make their money through their production companies. Avengers would've been successful without RDJ, but nowhere near what it was. Pay the man.

I wish it included Dylan Moran though.

Agreed, if it wasn't for the RDJ's charisma and him being so great in Iron Man 1, this whole Avengers thing would more than likely be a total bust right now. Him and Joss Whedon should get whatever they ask for.

I don't think Bale is or was the face of Batman, simply because the Batman movies were great because of Chris Nolan, and not Bale. Not knocking him, he's my favorite Batman, but if you take out Nolan from those movies, and replace them with a less talented actor, they're not going to be as good. RDJ and Iron Man franchise could work with just about anyone.

Jurassic Park 4 delayed. Bryce Dallas Howard and David Oyelowo were set to star

http://variety.com/2013/film/news/universal-delays-jurassic-park-4-release-1200477065/

Its for the best. No need to rush if they have a bad script. Only bad thing, is that it might be pushed back to summer 2015, and we can expect Avengers 2, and probably either a Justice League or DC character movie.

Michael Shannon back with Jeff Nichols for a "Starman" like sci-fi movie
