MCU poises to fight franchise fatigue with old heroes?

Marvel's top executives are admitting the much-touted TV shows are losing their stream, with them, the whole comic universe.

To revamp the dim spark, one bold idea was pitched: bring hack the old heroes.

According to a bombshell report in Variety, the head honchos of studios are mulling resurrecting the golden age Avenger team for a Marvel movie in the future, which would include Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man and Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow.

Reviving the dead heroes won't be a tall task, given the liberty in the franchise to tinker with the multiverse.

However, the expected wrinkle to the idea could be the paycheques.

Both Robert and Scarlett have been A-list actors, who come with a hefty price tag.

To point some hard figures, prior to Marvel films becoming the tentpole of Hollywood, the Oscar-nominated star raked in $25 million in salary for Iron Man 3 in 2013.
