'The Avengers' made over $1.5 billion (with a b) at the box office, which is enough to make it one of the biggest films of all-time. But Marvel executives weren't the only ones making money off the film. Star Robert Downey, Jr. confirms he made over $50 million to star in 'The Avengers' adding, "Isn't that crazy?" Yeah, pretty much.

A new 'Iron Man 3' TV spot has arrived and it has us wondering: is there such thing as too much marketing? After all, it feels like at least half of the highly anticipated Marvel adventure has been released through trailers, spots and clips. That's a thought to chew on as you watch this new footage (which, like the others, is quite cool).
As this new 'Iron Man 3' TV spot reminds us, the latest Tony Stark adventure is only a month away, but we don't need to tell you that. We know you and everyone you know are going to see it. However, this new spot does give us our first solid look at one of the more unique threats we've seen in the Marvel movie universe: The Mandarin's super soldiers!
After the seriousness of the last trailer, the latest 'Iron Man 3' spot does a 180 and showcases a more playful and goofy tone. That's appropriate since it premiered at the Kid's Choice Awards last night and if there's one thing kids tend to appreciate more than grim, dramatic downfalls, it's action and jokes. Check it out for yourself below.
The outstanding images from the 'Iron Man 3' trailer surely remain fresh in all of our minds. We're fairly certain this will be the biggest movie of the year, and that trailer just reinforced the stance. Thankfully, the goods keep coming from the superhero epic -- today we've got a nice and shiny new poster, courtesy of Marvel's Japanese marketing, which you can see in full after the break.
