When Thor, Iron Man and the Black Widow are done saving the world from intergalactic evil, the actors behind the excitement all come back to earth to prepare to save the world another day, to relax in style, and to get some shuteye, in some seriously awesome mansions around the world.
Check out some of the Marvel Universe stars’ homes here on our little blue planet.
Robert Downey Jr./Tony Stark/Iron Man
Robert Downey Jr. has been in the acting industry all his life, and has been in the news just as long. After a stint in rehab for drug abuse, Downey restarted his career in the early 2000s, and starred as Tony Stark/Iron Man in the Marvel Universe’s first franchise success, Iron Man. This movie was wildly successful, and started the long-running franchise which is still going strong today.
Downey was in a buying mood in 2009, purchasing two homes in the Los Angeles area. This home in Los Angeles set him back about $5.5 million for the five bedroom, five bathroom contemporary structure.
This Malibu home with three bedrooms and four bathrooms cost nearly $13.5 million, according to records. It may only have three bedrooms, but it is amazing nonetheless and in the right area to hobnob with other celebrities.
In 2012, he bought another home in Los Angeles, for about $3.5 million; pocket change after his success as Tony Stark. He likely bought the house for his ex-wife Deborah Falconer, who lives there at least part time.
That’s not all, though. He bought this Los Angeles home in 2014, for a mere $2.5 million.
In addition to his properties in California, Downey has residences across the United States. He purchased this “cottage” in East Hampton, NY in 2017 for more than $10 million.
Scarlett Johansson/Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow
Scarlett Johansson has been part of the Marvel Universe since Iron Man 2, starring as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow. She has been in Hollywood much longer, starring in both blockbuster movies and indie films.
Johansson has homes throughout California and the United States. She bought a home outside New York City, in Snedens Landing, NY in 2018 for about $4 million. The home overlooks the Palisades and has views of the water from every room. It also has a pool and cabana.
Since at least 2008, she has maintained a penthouse apartment on 53rd Street, near the Empire State Building. The 1,300 square foot apartment has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and a gorgeous chef’s kitchen.
Of course Johansson owns homes around Los Angeles; in December 2014 she and her husband bought this house for just under $4 million. The 3,500 square foot house has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a pool to boot.
The handsome Aussie actor who constantly saves the galaxy as Thor owns homes literally around the world. Hemsworth and his wife bought a sprawling mansion in 2013.
The stunning 6,500 square foot home has five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a massive workout area, and of course, a pool. He and his wife put it on the market in 2016 when they moved to Australia. The asking price was $6.5 million, nearly two million more than they paid for it.
The family relocated to Byron Bay, an area in southeastern Australia famous for SCUBA diving, surfing and relaxing on the beach. Shortly after moving in, they undertook a major expansion and renovation, basically redoing the entire home. It now has at least six bedrooms, a gym, a steam room, a rooftop infinity pool and lots of designed outdoor living space.
Hemsworth needs a place in Los Angeles as he continues to reprise his role as Thor in the Avengers franchise. He bought a smaller Malibu home in 2016 for about $3.5 million dollars.
Chris Evans/Steve Rogers/Captain America
Chris Evans, aka Captain America, has a low key superhero attitude, and seems to be as chill in real life. In 2013, the world-saving American super soldier bought a home in the Laurel Canyon area of Los Angeles. He dropped $3.25 million on a three bedroom, four bedroom house on Mulholland Drive. The house is behind a gate and high wall, keeping Thanos and curious visitors at bay.
Gwyneth Paltrow/Pepper Potts
Gyyneth Paltrow is Hollywood royalty, and doesn’t need a superpower to be a shining star in the Marvel Universe. The actress who stars as Pepper Potts in the Avengers franchise spends a lot of time in London, where she is raising her two children with her now-former husband, musician Chris Martin. Before their divorce, the couple lived in this gorgeous brown home in the tony Belsize area of London.
After her divorce, she bought a gorgeous home in 2016 in Los Angeles with the express intent to tear it down and rebuild on the same location. No matter what she does with the home, it’s sure to have amazing views of the hills and the ocean, and be aesthetically pleasing and architecturally stunning.
These awesome superstars have some of the coolest homes in the universe, which is fitting for intergalactic superheroes. In fact, we expect nothing less.
