Marvel are well known to low-ball talent. Renner’s hot property and Marvel are lucky to have him – But Universal & Paramount won’t hold back on getting him back for Mission & Bourne respectively. Disney certainly don’t hold back on their other big franchises like Depp etc.

Think we’ll find out soon enough. It'll be interesting to see what happens post-Iron Man 3 with Downey's contract.
I think that's the wrong question. In my mind the question would be, what happens to an independent studio when a budget gets out of control and then a movie underperforms slightly, vs when the same happens under a huge blanket company like Disney.

I think the fear of a total studio collapse is basically gone under the Disney banner, especially if Avengers gets close to/surpasses a billion $.
