Which comic book movie stars get paid the most? 1

Marlon Brando’s involvement in Superman is the stuff of legend, with the actor pitching that his Jor-El appear as either a suitcase or a bagel, because he couldn’t be bothered with an onscreen presence.

Even when he did appear, he was reading his lines from a cue card, but his agent deserves immense credit for netting him a significant percentage of the box office gross for his relatively minor troubles.

Richard Donner’s classic was the most expensive movie ever made at the time, and as well as netting a salary of $3.7 million, he took home 11.75% of the box office gross. After Superman flew to over $300 million, Brando was laughing to the bank after becoming $16 million richer.

Interesting facts about BTS
  • The group name, “BTS” stands for the Korean expression Bangtan Sonyeondan which translates to “Bulletproof Boy Scouts”. Band member J-Hope said that they chose this name because it represents BTS’s desire “to block out stereotypes, criticisms, and expectations that aim on adolescents like bullets.” But that isn’t the only meaning behind the name. 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. This was because Big Hit Entertainment CEO Bang Si-hyuk met with RM and was very impressed by his rapping talents. However, Bang Si-hyuk changed his mind and decided that today’s youth needed “a hero who can lend them a shoulder to lean on, even without speaking a single word.”
  • BTS has said that all of the following musicians have inspired their music; Post Malone, Eminem, Seo Taiji and Boys, Nas, Kanye West, Drake, Charlie Puth, Danger, and Queen.
