6 ‘Justice League’ Movie Actors Income, Ranked

With Zack Snyder’s Extended Cut of 2017’s Justice League, released in late March on HBO Max, not only have fans discussed the changes in the extended cut and Snyder’s choice to forgo pay for the new version, the release has also resurrected much debate about stars of the show and their net worth.

If not familiar with the story, here’s a quick catch up. According to Cinema Blend, in 2017, Director Zack Snyder had nearly completing the filming of Justice League, the third installment of the DC heroes series, behind Man of Steel (2013), Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) and Wonder Woman (2017).

Snyder was dealing with tragedy at home (his daughter Autumn passed away tragically in 2017) and Warner Bros. brought in director Joss Whedon, of The Avengers to rewrite portions of the film. Snyder walked away from the project and Justice League hit theaters with disappointing reviews.

Fans and cast members began calling for the Snyder version of the film with hashtag #ReleaseTheSnyderCut and encouraged him to create his vision for the world to see.

Warner Bros. gives him $70 million to complete his extended cut, Snyder shoots new scenes, bringing back Joker played by Jared Leto among a few others and what fans have in the end is a four-hour, Zack Snyder’s Justice League now streaming on HBO Max.

In the meantime, questions about characters Snyder brought back and reshoots involving several cast members as well as how much everyone was paid for the film circulated among DCEU fans.

There was even a high publicized gender pay discussion when Forbes reported that Henry Cavill earned $14 million for Man of Steel, while Gal Gadot earned just $300,000 for her leading role in Wonder Woman. According to Daily Dot, the drama was unwarranted as Cavill didn’t earn $14 million for just one film, rather, he and Gadot both negotiated for lower amounts for the earlier films with an increase as the franchise progressed.

If we look at the breakdown however, none of the starts of Justice League seem to be doing too poorly. Their current net worth is a reflection of their rise to stardom and how many DCEU films they’ve made to date.

6 Ezra Miller: $3 Million

He’s donned the role of Barry Allen/ The Flash for the past seven years in a variety of films including Justice League. According to critics, The Flash’s character has seen much improvement and growth as Snyder’s Cut provides audiences with a more mature and developed character then we’ve seen in the past. Snyder has also been said to tease the future of Flash and lead fans to believe there’s more to come.

5 Jason Momoa: $14 Million

We’ve watched Momoa in Game of Thrones and his starring role in Aquaman. At one point, Momoa claimed he had no interest in playing a superhero because he didn’t want to be typecast. However, his role as Aquaman skyrocketed his net worth to a whole new level.

4 Gal Gadot: $30 Million

Gadot first shined on the screen as Gisele in the fourth installment of the Fast & Furious franchise. She played Diana Prince/ Wonder Woman as lead in the film in 2017, again in Wonder Woman: 1984 in 2020 and takes a major role in the Justice League film. Gadot reportedly earned $300,000 for her role in the first Wonder Woman film, however, she stands to earn much more than that in backend profit and subsequent installments.

3 Henry Cavill: $40 Million

The British actor plays Clark Kent/Superman in solo performance in Man of Steel, reprises the role in Batman v. Superman and again in Justice League. Cavill broke into Hollywood with Showtime’s hit drama The Tudors and received rave reviews for his role in Netflix’s The Witcher.

2 Amy Adams: $65 Million

One of Hollywood’s leading ladies plays Lois Lane to Cavill’s Clark Kent in Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman and reprised the role in Justice League. According to Looper, the reunion between Lois and Clark in the theatrical version of Justice League wasn’t what Snyder had in mind, so fans are expecting some expansion on the Justice League crew and their storylines.

1 Ben Affleck: $150 Million

A post shared by Ben Affleck (@benaffleck)

The mega-star played Bruce Wayne/ Batman in Batman vs. Superman and reprised the role Justice League. Given the poor reception of the latter, Affleck has said he’s stepping down from the Batman role and Twilight actor Robert Pattinson is set to take on the new films in the franchise. While Affleck’s specific earning for the Batman role is undisclosed, fans can be sure it’s a far cry from the $30 he received to appear as an extra in Field of Dreams back in 1989. Like most actors and actresses today, Affleck’s contract most likely calls for lesser pay up front with a cut from the earnings after release.
