I still feel 9 picture deals are a stroke of genius. If that was all Ike then bravo. That's how you game this system.
This love fest with the stars serves no one but them. Look at these Thor movies. Son aint elevate the movies if you want to solely blame the writers for the story not being up to par.
High caliber actors can be interchangeable in this sense.

That's what happened to Hemsworth. You might not care for him personally and he might actually be disposable but you can feel that way while acknowledging it's kind of messed up.
People seem to have this same attitude towards athletes' contracts and say they don't care but when said athlete holds out and their team's forced to replace them with a downgrade the attitude changes
To me the clear difference in your comparison is what's most important is the IP not the actor. This is when it becomes more of a James Bond thing than playing a character and the movie becomes good enough to be a franchise.
This aint Tom Cruise is Ethan Hunt or Vin Diesel is Riddick. This is a I have my Bond while someone younger or older will have their Bond (and not even necessarily broken up in to categories based on age) and overall whether there's a ****** Bond somewhere along the way it's Bond that perseveres and stands the test of time. I feel like if this is Ike's approach he sees that the reveal value is in the IP.
If you want to compare, that's why I feel RDJR got paid the most and why right now there are no more IM movies slated to come out. He's made IM/Tony Stark the draw. So much so it's well known how much the cast just improvises and ad libs scenes. He's elevated the IP (cuz if we all know IM wasn't **** superhero wise and nowadays he's getting compared to Batman). So then you look at Hemsworth as Thor or even Evans as Cap and you're like these dudes aint adding value to the IP that they're almost irreplaceable.
So you lock them in for a fixed rate. I'm sure there was at least some breathing room on residuals depending on how well the movie did (and that should be dependent on if you got higher caliber writers or not). That's different with a basketball player cuz while a few teams are exceptions value wise you don't know when a player is gonna be the next all time great which is why they'll have more freedom in choosing where they go.

RDJ is getting paid way more than his co-stars in the ensemble films. I think RDJ is making more than Evans for CW and that's not fair. I mean, it's not even his film.
It's fair to me. RDJR brings more to Tony Stark/IM than Evans brings to Cap.
That example is a good reason why Marvel and Sony were able to make this deal where it didn't involve a new contract breaking down how they split profits. Iron Man being in your movie without a doubt is going to add to the box office the same way Spidey in the MCU adds to theirs while on the flip side the MCU connection being apart of Spidey's universe adds to his box office.
Cap aint elevating **** if he shows up in Thor.

I know most you guys get wet with Spidey in the film and the more screen time the wetter ya'll get but this isn't a Spiderman film that already has too many characters to begin with including introducing a character never before scene on the big screen in Black Panther.
This Spiderman already has like 2-3 movie slates coming up plus other cameos in the MCU, I don't really need to see him too much in this film.
If you don't think that report along with the multiple costumes and multiple fights rumored (including an Aunt May cameo) is too much in a Captain America film that is already over run with a bunch of other heroes... then I don't know what to tell you.
I mostly agree. Stark giving Spidey web shooters is stupid on several levels.
I'd rather he just give him the Iron Spidey suit to appease fan boys. Shooters need to be a Parker invention.
These rumors are becoming a bit much thoughEdited by Master Zik - 9/1/15 at 10:34pm
