Chris Evans was already a pretty well-known actor in Hollywood before landing the part of Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, since embodying the iconic role, he’s become arguably the most recognizable and popular superhero in any Marvel movie or Marvel series next to Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man. With that surge in popularity has come three solo Captain America films, including Captain America the First Avenger, Captain America the Winter Soldier, and Captain America Civil War.
And you can’t be the first Avenger and not appear in each Avenger movie so far, starting with The Avengers, followed by Avengers Age of Ultron, Avengers Infinity War, and Avengers Endgame.
Altogether, Chris Evans has portrayed Captain America eleven different times (his brief appearances in Thor the Dark World, Ant-Man, Captain Marvel, and Spider-Man Homecoming count). With all those appearances, and all the money those movies collectively made, is it any surprise Chris Evan’s net worth has shot through the roof, making him one of the highest-paid box office stars?

After cementing himself in the role in The Avengers, his per movie salary skyrocketed all the way to $15 million per movie for the last Captain America and Avengers films.
The success hasn’t stopped with Marvel movies. He’s also starred in hits like Knives Out, the Netflix original movie The Red Sea Diving Resort was recently seen in the Oscar-contender Don’t Look Up with Leonardo Dicaprio, will be the voice for Buzz Lightyear in the upcoming Lightyear movie, and will play the antagonist to fellow high net worth actor Ryan Gosling’s main character in The Gray Man.
