I feel that you can maintain the theme of persecution of minorities and make an over the top super powered adventure at the same time. Mathew Vaughn came very close to striking that balance in First Class. I'm sure he could've perfected his approach in his now defunct second approach.

I don't know how much Robert Downey Jr earns but I doubt it's as much as Jackman's $20 million a movie.
Robert made 50 million for the Avengers.
