I don't know, but I'd say the highest will be Urban and Saldana

Weird, I've never heard that, and find it highly unlikely. If you can find a source, I'd enjoy reading more. If Terrence Howard got more money than Downey did for IRON MAN, I want to hire his agent!

I bet Nimoy's was in the multi millions. He didn't want to be in TMP and was the only holdout (thats why they had Xon) but was lured by money (millions) to cast in it. I remember some TNG cast members that held out for money during the films.

Really? No wonder he was mad at being dropped.

That sounds like a lot but it has to stretch from project to project and cover all the other costs that an employer would normally cover like health insurance, etc. Plus, living in California is very expensive.

If I were them I'd as for a percentage of the gross.

Saldana. If ever there was a girl with "Future Diva" written on her forehead it's Zoe. I can just see her now in a solid gold trailer with hot and cold running chocolate, asking her personal butler to peel her a grape.

At the time Downey was not an A-list star so he didnt rate a huge salary. Of course this movie helped his career along quite well (among a couple other movies). Howards contention (read it on CNN I think) was that Downey was the only one who was basically given a raise of sorts due to the success of the movie in the next contract. My specifics might be off but thats the gist of it. Howard and the studios never came to an agreement so they hired Don Chedle (sp?) for the part.

I believe I read it in a UK paper edition of either Total Film or Empire magazine a few months back. It was around the time Don Cheadle was announced as his replacement. I believe salary negotiations were the sticking point of Howard.

I can only surmise that as he was higher paid to start with, his increase for the sequel wouldn't have been a substantial as Downey Jnr's (I don't even know what Paltrow was on anyway).

I think it's possible - Howard had been a recent Oscar nominee (that always raises your price for a while afterwards even if you don't win) and Downey Jnr hadn't had a huge financial hit in years (though the likes of Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang had put him on the comeback trail). Putting him up as the headliner of Iron Man was a relative gamble and he probably wasn't in a position to negotiate a huge salary.

As far as I know, it came down to Howard not being happy at the salary offered to him.

Just for a comparision with unkowns starring in main roles of big movies, Brandon Routh reportly got $1 million for Superman Returns. So it's possible Pine and Quinto are getting the same kind of deal.
