New York Comic Con is going on right now, but one best parts of a big convention is the after hours party and the hotel bar scene. Rich Johnston of Bleeding Cool is reporting that he was in a bar conversation with some Hollywood insiders that were discussing the budget to Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and 2.
The insiders are saying the combined production budget for the two films will be one billion dollars!
Johnston continues to say that the budget for the screenwriter, director, producers and principal actors will be four hundred million dollars, Robert Downey Jr salary will be half the actor’s budget.
Downey Jr is the A-Rod of the Avengers!
Avengers in 2012 made $1,519,557,910 worldwide and Avengers: Age of Ultron brought in $1,402,791,599 this summer. If you are not good at math that is a grand total of $2,922,349,509. Disney can afford to risk a billion on the sequels.
Filming is expected to begin in fall of 2016.
Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 will be released on May 4, 2018, and Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2 will open on May 3, 2019.
