100 million dollar Iron Man returns to Marvel franchise
The 48-year-old will star as billionaire playboy Iron Man Tony Stark in the upcoming Avengers 2 and 3 films.
Robert recently revealed he earned a staggering $50 million each (£32 million) from the first Avengers movie and Iron Man 3.
He told GQ mag: "Isn't that crazy? They're so p*****. I can't believe it. I'm what's known as 'a strategic cost'."
However, he was reportedly annoyed at the fact his cast mates were paid far less, and refused to sign up to the sequel unless the likes of Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L Jackson and Mark Ruffalo were given a cash bonus.
Joss Whedon is currently working on the script for The Avengers 2, with shooting to begin next March and the film expected to hit cinemas in 2015.
Marvel say the sequel will feature both favourites from the first movie and new characters never seen before on the big screen.
The Avengers and Iron Man 3 rank as two of the top five grossing films ever, raking in over $2.7 billion worldwide.
