Actor

A former Brat Packer, Downey Jr. might have once been consigned to nostalgia. Instead, he revamped himself by giving a snarky yet heartfelt wink to the superhero genre with his $1 billion-grossing “Iron Man” trilogy. In the past two years, though, he put Tony Stark to bed with the massively successful “Avengers” films: “Infinity War” ($678 million) and “Endgame” ($852 million) — and has proved canny about his power, taking an 8 percent back-end profit just on “Endgame,” which should earn another $7 mil on top of his $55 million take for that film alone. Downey’s road ahead will bring “The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle,” a third go as Sherlock Holmes in 2021 and a Team Downey exec producing slot on HBO’s “Perry Mason” reboot.
