Scarlett Johansson is 2016 top-grossing movie star

Its star, British actor Jones (No. 9), joins the top-grossing actors list this year for the first time with the Lucasfilm spin off.

Chris Evans, 35, and Robert Downey Jr., 51, who respectively starred as Steve Rogers/Captain America and Tony Stark/Iron Man in the Avengers epic, tied for second place, despite having appeared in no other films this year.

Captain America co-star Robert Downey Jr.came in at number 2 - $50,000 behind Scarlett - because that was the only movie which he was in in 2016.

Johansson, 32, reprised her Marvel Cinematic Universe role as Natasha Romanoff, the Black Widow, in the $1.15 billion global hit "Captain America: Civil War", the year's highest-grossing film.

Scarlett Johansson has been named as the top grossing actor of 2016 by Forbes magazine.

Civil War was good to Johansson's costars, too.

Johansson was also named the highest-grossing actress ever, in June, after Box Office Mojo reported that her movies have grossed $3.3 billion in U.S. domestic box office revenue.

The actor topped the list after her films raked in $1.2bn (£977m) globally over the past 12 months.

In actual fact, the only actor without a comic to contribute to her total is Star Wars' Felicity Jones who made her debut onto the ranking this year. If Rogue One had been released earlier in 2016, Felicity would have probably been higher up on the list!

Forbes curates the annual list by adding up global ticket sales using data from analysis site Box Office Mojo. Captain America: Civil War, Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, and Deadpool were all box office blockbusters this year.

Fellow DC film "Suicide Squad" helped land Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) in fourth place, with the help of "The Legend of Tarzan", and Will Smith (Deadshot) in 10th place, including box office from the still-in-theaters "Collateral Beauty".
