Which comic book movie stars get paid the most? 9

As one of the most critically acclaimed actors of his generation, Christian Bale certainly isn’t in it for the money, but it helps your finances greatly when you play Batman in a billion-dollar blockbuster.

Christopher Nolan’s Bruce Wayne was paid a $10 million salary for The Dark Knight, but the various bonuses in the small print bumped his earnings up by a further $20 million after it crossed the ten-figure threshold.

He then received roughly the exact same amount when the sequel arrived four years later and did similar business, making Bale the highest-paid big screen Batman by quite some distance.
