I never said he couldn't or shouldn't ask for as much money as he's entitled to. I'm not naive; I know how Hollywood works. He's earned every penny he's made so far, and he deserves to keep making the kind of money that he's been making. That's not my point. He's a part of something much bigger than himself now. Yes, he's been the face of the MCU since its inception (for the most part), but asking for (I believe) $30 million to be in Civil War, and then demanding that he get an even larger cut of the profits if Civil War outperforms The Winter Soldier (which it most certainly will) just comes across as incredibly greedy and douchey to me. It's not even his movie! Marvel almost couldn't make Civil War if they couldn't get RDJ on board. That's absurd. Marvel shouldn't be tucking tail when it comes to RDJ. Either he plays ball with them or he doesn't. It's insane to me that he and Scarlett Johannson make $25-30 million-plus for the movies they're in where the others make less than $10 million a piece. Civil War is a Captain America movie and he's making the third-most out of the entire cast. That's just...doesn't seem right to me. I know it's a silly opinion to have and it shouldn't bother me, but it does. I know it's because of their contracts, but I digress. Oh, well. I agree about Michael Keaton, though. I think it's simply that he didn't care for the script or the character they were asking him to play (many suspect Vulture) rather than that Marvel couldn't afford him. As for Joaquin Phoenix, I vaguely recall him saying in an interview that he'd have loved to play Strange but wasn't asked to, but I could be misremembering.
