The Academy Award nominated actor received the hefty sum to star in the fourth Bourne movie, The Bourne Legacy.

If Renner continues with the franchise, that number can escalate into the $10 million-plus range, with the possibility of reaching the $20 million figure Matt Damon got for The Bourne Ultimatum.

The Town star received a mere six figures for his role in The Avengers, but could earn more if his option is picked up for the next set of films.
