A billion dollar company like Marvel has a long list of actors and actresses who have been in the MCU. Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth and many more are the Hollywood stars under the banner. Each of them worked in some of the highest-grossing films the studios have ever made.

Avengers: Endgame became the second highest-grossing movie of all time, followed by Avengers: Infinity War at 5th and Spider-Man: No Way Home at 6th. Now, Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has come out with a thunderous opening.

Besides Marvel, all of the actors have worked in other films and also run businesses. So, let’s take a look at the ten richest actors and actresses who are part of the MCU.

Michael Douglas

It may come as a shock, but it’s not Robert Downey Jr who is the richest actor to have a role in Marvel. Douglas was Hank Pym in Ant-Man and the Avengers Saga. The acclaimed actor and multiple Oscar winner has a net worth of $350 million.

Robert Downey Jr.

With just $50 million short, RDJ is the second richest star in the MCU with a net worth of $300 million. He was an integral part of the franchise by playing the role of Iron Man. Robert is also the franchise’s first highest earner for Avengers: Endgame. (It was $75 million)

Edward Norton

Although the actor appeared in only one movie, The Incredible Hulk, he should be counted on this list because it was the second movie ever made by the MCU. Norton’s net worth is the same as Robert’s, $300 million.

Samuel L Jackson

Samuel aka Nick Fury has been an important recurring actor in the Universe. The actor is also known for his work for other highly acclaimed films. His net worth is $250 million.

Wine Diesel

Known for his role in the Fast & Furious franchise, thanks to which Diesel earned millions, the actor played the role of Groot in the Guardians of the Galaxy series and other Avengers films. The value of the actor is 230 million dollars.

Scarlett Johansson

As for the number of female superheroes in Marvel, it is much less than that of males. Scarlett Johansson is the first and only female superhero on the list and drops to number six. The Black Widow actress has a net worth of $165 million, nearly half that of Robert Downey Jr!

Chris Hemsworth

Next is the Asgardian, Thor. Chris has taken on the role of the God and will soon be seen in the upcoming MCU movie Thor: Love and Thunder. His earnings have boosted his net worth to $130 million.
