It is not surprising to see how our dear Ironical friend gets to the top spot, although the surprising fact is none of his friends of the greatest movie franchise of Hollywood in 2015, the avengers, do not make it here. Nevertheless, Robert Downey Jr is certainly one of the best actors in the movie industry anyway, clearly deserving of this spot. The Iron Man series were already cashing in big for him, but the avengers helped him reach 80 million USD of income during the past year, making him the number 1 among the highest paid actors of 2015. His role in the future Captain America’s civil war is greatly awaited this year, with surely another big cash flow.
