    I think I saw her name as an Exec Producer. That's points right there.

    Not always. Producer credits can mean whatever they want them to mean...as much or as little.

    You could do #3 without Jenkins, probably, but you definitely won't have any success doing it without Gadot.

    A bit off topic, but when I see numbers like that, it make me wonder why people get so bent out of shape when an athlete makes that kind of money but never says a word about movie stars making that kind of money?

    My theory that the people that get mad played the sport as a kid and don’t think it is fair that someone gets paid to play a “game”

    So in that vein, if you acted in a school play, should you think it's not fair that an actor makes $100M per movie for something you did for free in 5th grade?

    Maybe except more dream about being an athlete than an actor.

    Maybe, but other are absurd in the scheme of things. But then again, how many of either have the talent to get that much money? Not many in either vocation. Still more important jobs make far less money. Just the way it is. I'm not complaining.

    Alternatively some of the complaint may be that a team with more money can (barring league rules to the contrary) can simply buy their way to victory by outbidding everyone else for all the best talent.

    People don't generally care that actor A was too expensive for a given movie[1] but boy do they seem to be pissed if their rival team is seen to win because they could spend more on players.

    [1] And sometimes even major A-list actors will work cheap in order take a role they really love. Don't really get that for sports.

    Of course, in sports they don't get paid by the game...

    Or maybe it’s because the papers are full of salary info for sports but very little for entertainment.

    The only problem with your theory is that fans generally get pissed at the players who get the money, not the billionaire owners who spend it. And it only seems to happen in SOME sports. How many people are pissed that James is making $40M a year or whatever and picks and chooses where he wants to play? Or that Tiger Woods was raking in millions playing golf? But A-Rod is paid a fortune to play for the Texas Rangers and suddenly people are up in arms. I think it's more baseball than anything else. And I think that's more because we all played baseball as a kid, you tend not to have to be a "freak" physically to play it, so it just doesn't seem right.

    And on your actor working "cheap" to make a movie they want to make, by cheap you mean $10M instead of $100M? You think they would work for scale?

    Are there even 100 actors who can command $10 million for a single film? To date, there have been 4 who have reached $100 million, and that's upfront salary plus back-end deals. Tom Cruise is the only who to have done it twice, for War of the Worlds and Mission Impossible 2.

    The vast majority of actors do indeed work for scale.

    The vast majority of actors don't work at all...

    The comment was A+ actors who worked "cheap" because they wanted to do the movie. What is cheap for an A+ actor? $1M? Cheap to them isn't cheap to most of us. Plus they can afford to work "cheap" for one movie because they did 2 other movies that they didn't work "cheap".

    Oh, I know. I was trying to make the point that the number of actors who can afford to work "cheap" for a passion project is pretty small. Today's A-listers being tomorrow's has-beens, keeps that a pretty exclusive club.

    That's very true. It's the same for an Athlete. The BEST of them generally don't have careers longer than 20 years, most who are considered "successful" last 5-10. And just like movie stars, today's star is tomorrow's has been. But again, people get bent out of shape when an athlete makes a lot of money but not actors.

    Who are these people you talk of? I've never heard anyone mad about an athlete getting paid. I've never heard someone hate on Tiger Woods for making as much money as possible. But what people do complain about is teams paying players so much that they get all the best players and other teams don't have the budget to compete. That is the only criticism I've head about player's pay. But I don't hang out in sport forums so I could be wrong.
