I understand that movies are a business, which is something that I've brought up myself on numerous forums whenever I've seen fanboys whining about why things weren't a certain way.
But in business, your pay must be competitive. Otherwise, you risk losing a star to another studio that wants to pay him way more to appear in a forgettable romantic comedy.
Would something like that really help Marvel?
If they aren't competitive, why did the actors sign up for six movie deals?
