Comic creator made more money on ‘Batman v Superman’ than multiple Marvel movies combined


Jim Starlin is a comic book writer and artist responsible for creating Anatoli Knyyazev…. aka KGBeast, who was played by Callan Mulvey in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Starlin also created some Marvel characters including Thanos, Drax, and Gamora.

In a Facebook post today, Starlin announced that he received a big fat check from DC Entertainment for using Anatoli Knyyazev in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. In fact, he made more money from Knyyazev’s small role in Batman v Superman than all of the Marvel movies combined where Thanos, Drax, and Gamora appear (at least 3 movies, by my count).

Just received a very big check from D.C. Entertainment for my participation in Batman V Superman, Dawn of Justice…

Hopefully when Starlin finally sits down to watch Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice it’s the Ultimate Edition!
