Re: Disappointments of the Trilogy?
At this point I think he is basically paid on commission. He gets a % of the gross. So if he delivers the goods box office-wise then why shouldn't he get paid more? I doubt Marvel has much of a problem with that arrangement. It basically means they don't have to shell out $20, $30, $40, $50 million to him and have that be actually part of the budget they need to recoup for the film to be successful. I'm sure they like not having to pay that a whole lot more.
So long Harry Potter. The MCU is now the biggest franchise in history domestic AND WW. You're next, Pixar. $841m to go WW for you.
