In 2012, the Marvel Cinematic Universe introduced the world to the Avengers, which was the sixth film in the MCU and was based on the comic book series of the same name. The film was the beginning of an epic saga, bringing together the world’s mightiest heroes that were portrayed by some of the biggest stars in Hollywood.
In April 2019, the Avengers storyline was brought to a close with the film, Avengers: Endgame. While some fan-favorites didn’t make it, (RIP Tony Stark and Natasha Romanoff), others’ storylines will be continued in future films.
In addition to Endgame, the Avengers series spawned two other sequels: Avengers: Age of Ultron and Avengers: Infinity Wars, each were box-office hits, with tickets sales sky-rocketing through the roof.

Boseman made his debut as T'Challa/Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War, and then in the titular character in the 2018 film.
Boseman has a five-year contract with Marvel, which makes his net worth of $8 million believable.
This well-known actor rose to prominence due to his role in the popular sitcom, Parks and Recreation. Chris Pratt also starred in the films Delivery Man, Moneyball, and Jennifer's Body before winning the role as Peter Quill/Star-Lord in the MCU films: Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Infinity Wars, and Endgame.

For his portrayal as the Hulk in the first Avengers film, Ruffalo received $2-$3 million.
Chris Evans may have had an unconventional start in the Marvel Universe. Evans first portrayed Johnny Storm/Human Torch, in the film Fantastic Four and its sequel. Both films weren't as successful in the box-offices, but Evans went on to star in other films, such as Not Another Teen Movie, Sunshine, Gifted, and made his directorial debut with the film Before We Go.
Evans returned to the Marvel world when he signed on to play Steve Rogers/Captain America, for three stand-a-lone films and all four Avengers films. Evans confirmed that Endgame would be his last film as Captain America.
Chris Hemsworth plays the god of thunder, Thor, in the MCU. The handsome, Australian actor began his career on the TV series, Home and Away, and then went on to star in the films Star Trek, Snow White and the Huntsman, Rush, Red Dawn, and Ghostbusters. In 2011, Hemsworth dawned the red cape and silver armor as the mighty demi-god in the titular film. He then starred in the film's two sequels, the four Avengers films, and made a cameo appearance in Doctor Strange.
The 35-year-old is still signed on to play Thor in any upcoming Marvel films.
The 34-year-old beauty is currently the world's highest paid actress, and given her resume, she probably deserves the title. Scarlett Johansson began her career in 1994 by starring in the film North. The actress went on to gain international fame with her prominent roles in the films Girl with the Pearl Earring, The Horse Whisperer, Ghost World, Lucy, Her, A Love Song For Bobby Long, and Vicky Cristina Barcelona.
Johansson signed on to play Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow and appeared in Iron Man 2 in 2010. From there Johansson appeared in all the Avengers films, two Captain America films, and even though her character was killed off in the last Avengers film, she is still signed on to play Black Widow in an upcoming prequel.
It's no surprise that the man who played the glue that held the Avengers together is the highest-paid actor from the franchise. Robert Downey Jr. plays the egotistical billionaire, Tony Stark/Iron Man, for all three Iron Man movies, the four Avengers films, one Spider-Man movie, Captain America: Civil War, and The Incredible Hulk.
The critically-acclaimed actor suffered a career setback due to his substance abuse and legal issues but turned his career around with his roles in Tropic Thunder, Zodiac, and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Avengers: Endgame concluded Iron Man's story-line in the MCU but the veteran actor will continue to make movie magic for many years to come.
