Tom Hardy’s income in Sony’s superhero film franchise Venom
The first installment of the Venom series was released in 2018 and was received well by the audience. The production team did not want to take risks with the budget for the film, hence, Hardy was paid only $7 million for the role. He was a journalist named Eddie Brock, a human that hosted the symbiote, Venom.
With the grand success of the first film in the series, the second one was released in 2021. As per the reports, the actor was paid a massive salary of $17 million for the high-grossing film. Now the production team is working on the third installment of the movie. As per the reports, the lead actor of the film will be paid a whopping amount of $20 million for the role.
Tom Holland’s income for the MCU Spiderman franchise
Tom Holland made his superhero debut with the film Captain America: Civil War released in 2016. He was paid a total of $250000. After the success of the film, Holland was offered his own franchise. The first one was Spider-man: Homecoming for which he was paid $500000 by Marvel Studios. He also earned a contractual bonus from the film performance, which increased his pay to $1.5 million.
His next release in 2019 was Spider-Man: Far From Home, for which he earned a massive amount of $4 million. The movie was a smashing hit at the box office and grossed $1.9 billion worldwide. Tom Holland’s salary for the third installment in 2021, Spider-Man: No Way Home was reportedly around $10 million, which is one massive pay increase for the star. No doubt, the actor is quickly climbing the ladder of success.
