How Much Does Sebastian Stan Make From Marvel?
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier has taken Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan from Captain America’s sidekicks to frontmen. But how much of a pay increase did Stan get when going from a supporting to a main character?
Sebastian Stan’s net worth
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is the second of Marvel’s TV shows on Disney+, starting just after the series finale of WandaVision. Before becoming Bucky Barnes, Stan had recurring roles TV shows like Once Upon a Time and Gossip Girl and appeared in films like Black Swan, Rachel Getting Married, and more.
He’s kept himself busy when not appearing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well. After first playing Bucky in Captain America: The First Avenger, he appeared in films like Gone, The Apparition, The Bronze, Ricki and The Flash, The Martian, Logan Lucky, I, Tonya, and I’m Not Here. He also co-starred with Tom Holland in 2020’s The Devil All the Time.
Throughout it all, Stan has amassed a net worth of an estimated $8 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
How much do Marvel actors make?
The salary for each Marvel actor varies. The original Avengers made the most, given their longer tenure as main characters in the franchise. And Robert Downey Jr. made the most of that group, according to IGN.
Downey made $20 million for acting in Endgame, and then he reportedly made an extra $55 million thanks to box office sales. He had a backend deal that landed him some of the film’s profits. And of course, Endgame is the biggest box office success in history. So he’s sitting pretty.
Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, and Chris Hemsworth earned $15 million each for Endgame. Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner’s exact salaries for the final Avengers movie is unknown, but it’s likely they had a similar pay to their co-stars. Renner is also getting a Hawkeye TV show on Disney+, which he’ll likely get a raise for.
What is Sebastian Stan’s salary?
The Marvel TV shows are a different ballgame. Since the MCU took supporting characters like Scarlet Witch, Vision, The Falcon, and The Winter Solider and turned them into main characters, the actors were able to negotiate new salaries. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Renner, Mackie, and Stan all negotiated new salaries for their TV appearances that are separate from what they make in the movies.
According to Men’s Health, Mackie made $475,000 per episode of Altered Carbon Season 2 on Netflix, making him $3.8 million total. He was likely able to leverage this and his multiple Marvel movies into an impressive paycheck for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. While his an Stan’s exact pay for the series is unknown, it’s likely that he and Stan are making around the same for the show’s six episodes.
Mackie is also worth $8 million, per Celebrity Net Worth. With The Falcon and The Winter Soldier being Disney+’s biggest original series debut ever, the stars will probably be able leverage the show’s success into a higher paycheck for future Marvel films.
