Which comic book movie stars get paid the most? 1

A lot of people were surprised when Paul Rudd appeared on the list of highest-paid actors in the world back in 2019, probably because he’s such a relatable and down to earth guy that felt out of place in among the typical A-list names.

However, he did take top billing Ant-Man and the Wasp and play a pivotal role in Avengers: Endgame within the space of nine months, which turned out to be a financial bonanza based on his profit participation that totaled $41 million.

The Ant-Man sequel raked in $622 million and Endgame brought in more than four times that amount, so you can completely understand why Rudd looks so happy all the time, when the MCU’s smallest hero is walking away with gigantic paydays.

In 2017, BTS said, as part of their new brand identity, that their name would also stand for Beyond the Scene” which extended their name to mean “growing youth BTS who is going beyond the realities they are facing, and going forward.”
  • BTS was originally intended to be a hip-hop group, similar to YG Entertainment’s 1TYM.
