There were reports after the film`s release that the 48-year-old actor`s pay could be close to USD 50 million, factoring in both box office business and the specifics of his contract with Marvel Studios, said the Hollywood Reporter.

Asked about the remuneration, he said, "Yeah. Isn`t that crazy? They`re so pissed, I can`t believe it. I`m what`s known as `a strategic cost`."
