Downey reigns as the highest paid man in Hollywood because at this point, it would be incredibly difficult for Marvel to continue making Iron Man and Avengers films without him. Downey, earned an estimated $80 million between June 2014 and June 2015, spurred by the success of this year's superhero ensemble "Avengers: Age of Ultron," which grossed more than $1.3 billion worldwide. For the third year in a row, Robert Downey Jr., s stratospheric $80 million payday is more than any other leading man on the planet, helping Iron Man punch $30 million above Hong Kong hero Jackie Chan’s second place haul.
