Avengers Stars Salaries Revealed

Following the release of Forbes' Celebrity 100 earnings list, Marvel fans can now see how much the main Avengers cast members brought home the bacon. 

As reported by UK's The Independent (July 13, 2019), the Top 6 earners were:
  • Chris Hemsworth (Thor) – $76.4m (£60.7m) 
  • Robert Downey, Jr (Iron Man) – $66m (£52.5m) 
  • Bradley Cooper (Rocket) – $57m (£45m) 
  • Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) – $56m (£44.5m) 
  • Chris Evans (Captain America) – $43.5m (£34.6m) 
  • Paul Rudd (Ant-Man) – $41m (£32.6m)

The combined sum came in at a staggering $340m (£270m). 

It’s worth noting that these sums also take into account the negotiated price a certain star will receive from the film’s box office profits. 

For example, Downey Jr’s agent locked down eight percent back-end profit, which works out as an additional $55m (£43.7m) on top of his fee for starring. 

BTW, box office receipts for Avengers: Endgame had reached $2,796,160,402 in 126 days. As at August 29, 2019. 

Another tour de force is my favorite English football team. Liverpool Football Club.

Liverpool’s perfect start to the season continued with a 3-0 win at Burnley yesterday. 

Last season’s top two have now broken clear of the pack although this time, it is us who are two points ahead. 

The Reds took the lead on 33 minutes when Trent Alexander-Arnold’s attempted cross from deep on the right hit the back of Claret forward Chris Wood and looped over his keeper Nick Pope into the far corner. An own goal.

Four minutes later, Burnley skipper Ben Mee passed straight to Roberto Firmino, who burst forward and then slipped the ball left to Sadio Mane, who finished with precision into the bottom corner – and doubled Liverpool's advantage. 

And in the eightieth minute, Firmino wrapped up the win – the No. 9 becoming the first Brazilian to score 50 in the Premier League – as he rifled home after picking the ball up from Mohamed Salah, who skipped past two challengers before setting him up. 

Liverpool have won 13 league games in a row for the first time in their history, while they are only the second English top-flight side to win 13 in a row while scoring more than once each time (after Tottenham in 1960):

An awesome record-breaking achievement for Jurgen Klopp’s side. 

And a first clean sheet of the season. 

Four games, four wins, 12 points – fabulously fantastic!
