aside from Tom Cruise and The Rock, no actor is able to open a movie at the box office based on name alone.
Downey is easily bigger than both.£

What's the box office performance for his films outside Marvel? I do agree that he is a bigger household name though. Or at least in equal footing with Cruise.

Also, the critiques Larson is getting is similar to the ones ScarJo got. Internet culture back then wasn't nearly as toxic as it is now but people did accuse ScarJo of being arrogant, elitist, and terrible. Even Megan Fox said that ScarJo takes big words from the SAT and uses them in casual conversation just to appear smart.

Everyone loves her now. Give Larson some time and maybe don't be so critical? We don't know what's going on in her personal life that is making her seem on edge. Also, press interview days are fucking horrible and many actors have been bitchy in them. But for some reason we're focusing on Brie so much.

Another thing to keep in mind, don't trust the video. Who knows if they edited out some playful stuff.

LOL. Tom Cruise would open even BIGGER if he was playing Iron Man. RDJ was pretty much a nobody until he got the role for Ironman.

RDJ was most definitely not a nobody

however Cruise is a bigger star and i don’t think it’s particularly close

It's insane to even debate this. Do you even know how much higher Downey's salary is compared to Cruise?£

Is this a joke? We are talking about salary now? What's next? Scarjo the most bankable female action star? Outside of Marvel, see how bankable she is. Hey, I would demand a high salary too if each movie makes near a billion dollars each.

Why are people forgetting/ignoring outside of MI almost all of Cruise’s recent movies flopped?

How is that relevant to him being an absolute and versatile megastar? And unprecedented stuntsman on occasion as well, which started this whole debate.

Freaking Holmes films have grossed way higher than anything Cruise has done in the last ten years outside of MI, but sure bro, it's not even close.

Only on Nolanfans.£
