Every fan who passionately loves something, no matter what, is SUPPORTING the thing he loves. When I buy a CD of a band I like, I want to support the band by paying for it. This is a matter of honesty and respecting their good work. Just because these film makers make a "little more" money than an underground band, does not automatically mean they don't deserve the same thing. I am proudly saying that I'm going to theaters. I'm buying the DVDs of movies I love, because I value the movies. Saying you don't, is nothing you should be proud of.

They need to keep Chris on board for two more avengers films and at least one more Thor film.
There is apparently something going on there for most of the cast, if not all. I heard that same issue about RDJ. Appearing last week on "The Daily Show," "Iron Man 3" star Robert Downey Jr. was coy when asked whether he will "keep going" with Marvel's flagship franchise, responding simply, "I don't know." "I had a long contract with them," he added with an exaggerated wink to host Jon Stewart, "Now we're going to renegotiate."

This leaves me speechless actually.

The re-casts are inevitable at some point. Unless the rest of the solo-adventures receive huge boosts in the box office, eventually these guys are going to get tired of playing the parts. The only guy I ever got the impression he was enjoying his time (aside from RDJ) was Hiddleston.
Whenever someone had been replaced, and it was said they had "creative difficulties" this means, it was only about money. The Norton case was about money. And Terrence Howard case was about money too. I just don't think that asking for a little more salary for a sequel is wrong, if the first movie has been a success.

Marvel is greedy and has allegedly even threatened actors who asked for more sallary to replace them. Let's face it: They did that in the past! IM and RDJ have grossed so much money... Money they used to build up MS and make the Avengers which became the third sucessfull movie of all time. Why can't they just give a little bit of that huge cake to the actors instead of kicking everyone out who is not agreeing to this kind of behavior.

I have so much respect especially for Chris who has to get muscles like a god ... like each year. It deeply saddens me. I simply REFUSE to get another actor for IM, or for THOR!!
