Scarlett Johansson is Black Widow in Captain America: Civil War

Scarlett Johansson is the highest grossing actor of 2016!

Move over Captain America! Look out Iron Man! Black Widow officially rules 2016. In a recent report from Forbes, Black Widow actress Scarlett Johansson tops the list of the highest grossing actors of 2016.

ScarJo edged out her Captain American: Civil War co-stars Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) and Chris Evans (Captain America) for top honors.

Top Grossing Actors of 2016:

10. Will Smith ($775 million)

9. Felicity Jones ($805 million)

8. Ryan Reynolds ($820 million)

7. Henry Cavill ($870 million)

6. Ben Affleck ($1.02 billion)

5. Amy Adams ($1.04 billion)

4. Margot Robbie ($1.1 billion)

3. Robert Downey Jr. ($1.15 billion)

2. Chris Evans ($1.15 billion)

1. Scarlett Johansson ($1.2 billion)

For those of you keeping score, literally everyone on this list was in a “geek culture” film that’s on this list. The only one that wasn’t in a comic book movie was Felicity Jones, and I think we can all agree that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story easily classifies as a geeky/nerdy movie.

What do you guys think of the list? Are there any surprise omissions or inclusions that you didn’t expect to see? Join in on the conversation folks! We’d love to hear from you, so jump into the comments and tell us what you think!
