Robert Pattinson Reportedly Wants His Salary Doubled For The Batman Sequel

The Batman

Normal folk can rarely understand pay disputes that occur in Hollywood, when actors become furious about wages amounting to millions. The pandemic has exacerbated these dramas, leading to actions such as Scarlett Johansson suing Disney, and Denzel Washington earning more for The Little Things than the movie actually earned at the box office.

Robert Pattinson is pocketing the sum of $3 million for The Batman. However, some fans still voiced their surprise that one of the most famous characters in pop culture wouldn’t offer better financial rewards.

Of course, if The Batman fares well at the box office, he’ll make performance-related bonuses (which come with every franchise contract), as well. Nonetheless, our sources claim — the same ones who told us Jared Leto’s Joker was getting a brand new look for Zack Snyder’s Justice League long before it was confirmed — that Pattinson wants to double his salary for the sequels.

If anything, that sounds generous when Robert Downey Jr.’s base earnings jumped from $500,000 to $10 million between Iron Man and Iron Man 2. Rumors claim Pattinson will be more heavily involved behind the scenes on The Batman sequels, so there’s really no other outcome than the latest big screen iteration of the Dark Knight seeing his remuneration continue to rise substantially the longer he plays the role.
