Marvel has a lot to lose if virtually the entire Avengers
cast walks from the sequel because of money disputes. They can't recast everyone without a massive backlash. They'll gnash their teeth but they'll pay the actors their fair share. They might reduce an upfront payment, but a backend deal is potentially more money in the actors' pockets.
Although I'm curious as to why Disney and Marvel Studios didn't get negotiations for Avengers 2
done with when they set that May 2015 date last year. Why wait until now?
