Jim Starlin is well known for his Marvel works. The artist recently received high appreciation for the creation of Thanos since the character will be used in Avengers: Infinity War. However, it looks like Marvel does not value him as much as DC Entertainment.
In a recent shocking Facebook post, Starlin talked about details about his paycheck. He said that his pay from Marvel is much lesser compared to DC Entertainment. Furthermore, he stated that his pay for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice exceeds Marvel Studios overall payment for his contribution.
Starlin created a side character villain known as KGBeast for DC Entertainment. The character was known as Antoli Knyyazev played by Callan Mulvey in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Moreover, the villain met his unfortunate end in the hands of Batman in the third act of the movie.
Payment for KGBeast Character Contribution Was More Than Thanos
Starlin also created Drax, Gamora and Thanos for Marvel. Currently, all three characters continue to exist and entertain fans in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, the studio seems to be underpaying the artist, unlike DC Entertainment.
Starlin’s post also revealed he has not watched Batman v Superman yet. Surprisingly, the artist does not know the fate of his character. He has yet to receive his payment for the use of his characters in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 and Avengers: Infinity War. It is likely that he will be paid after its release similar to Batman v Superman.
Jim Starlin Has Not Watched Batman v Superman Yet
Thanos made his first appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy, but his screen time was short. However, his upcoming role as the main villain makes him top priority. Fans can hope that Starlin will receive a higher pay for his contribution in Avengers: Infinity War. It is also likely that DC Entertainment’s pay will still be bigger.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is set to hit theaters on April. The film is currently in post-production stages. On the other hand, the Avengers: Infinity War is slated for 2018. The movie began its filming on Monday.
