Well, for those who are curious about the other Avengers, what they made, depending on which movie, is not a big secret — and some of the payouts will shock you. Just Jared recently released a list of how much many of the Hollywood A-listers in the MCU made, and the price tags are high.

For example, Chris Hemsworth, who plays superhero Thor, made 15 million on Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Thor: Ragnarok (2017). Interestingly, however, for his original film Thor (2011), the Marvel actor only pulled in $150,000. We can see these massive increases with a lot of different Marvel actors, with the biggest difference coming from Robert Downey Jr.
