Scarlett Johansson ranks top grossing actor/actress in 2016.
We have all enjoyed being wooed and awed through the years by this beautiful and intelligent sister. From action to romance, comedy and drama, not to mention scoring the top paid actor this year, she has repeatedly proven herself to be among the top performers. From the magical assistant and go-between to the madly obsessed and rivaling Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale in The Prestige, to Lucy, the Avengers and on to the mysterious lead role in the highly anticipated anime based Ghost In The Shell, Miss Johansson delivers a punch with ass kicking allure and eloquence while simultaneously commanding (and deserving) respect.
In a top ten list comprised of vastly comic book based movie stars, the only top grossing actor of 2016 outside of the Marvel or DC world is Felicity Jones of the newest Star Wars release Rogue One. DC’s high earners were Suicide Squad featuring Will Smith, Jared Leto and the superbly cast Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, and of course Batman vs. Superman which featured Doomsday as a strange DNA hybrid Kryptonian and introduced Wonder Woman to millions of fans delight. Marvel’s top grossing actors include Chris Evans (Captain America) and Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) who tied for a close second place at $1.15 Billion and co-starred with Johansson in Captain America: Civil War. Scarlett’s gross was $1.2 Billion
