Marvel reportedly pays comic book writers and artists $ 5,000 along with a premiere invitation for inspiring a movie.
It’s not secret years of comic book history that inspire the Marvel Studios movies. However, the comic creators responsible for the characters and plots in the first place are not given as much as some might have thought given their success, and new details are starting to come to light.
According to The Guardian, Marvel will typically compensate a writer or artist whose work served as a significant inspiration in a movie with $ 5,000 and an invitation to the premiere. In rare cases, a creator may obtain a “special character contract” and claim remuneration. However, an anonymous creator revealed that it was all or nothing when he was offered the contract:
“They have offered me a [special character contract] that was really terrible, but it was that or nothing. And then instead of honoring him, they send a thank you note and say, ‘Here’s some money we don’t owe you!’ and they are five of the greats. And you say, ‘The movie made a billion dollars.’
Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting also appeared at the Captain America: The Winter Soldier premiere as its comic book release inspired the film, but it didn’t earn a spot on the party list. Brubaker finally texted Sebastian Stan to join the party.
