Scarlett Johansson is the top-grossing actor of 2016, according to Forbes.
The magazine reported Tuesday that the 32-year-old actress, known for playing Black Widow in the Marvel cinematic universe, brought in $1.2 billion at the box office this year.
Johansson starred as Black Widow in Captain America: Civil War, which earned over $1.15 billion alone. She also appeared in the Coen brothers movie Hail, Caesar!, which made $62 million in theaters.
Fellow Marvel stars Chris Evans and Robert Downey, Jr., who portray Captain America and Iron Man, respectively, tied for second place with $1.15 billion each. The pair were followed by Suicide Squad actress Margot Robbie and Arrival star Amy Adams.
Johansson first played Black Widow in Iron Man 2 (2010), and has since starred in four other Marvel films. She will reportedly reprise the role in Avengers: Infinity War, and has long been rumored for a Black Widow solo film.
“I would like for it to happen under the right circumstances. I think there’s a lot of opportunity to mine that story line,” the star told Variety in October. “There’s a lot of places you can go.”
“I think it would just have to be very much, like, its own specific thing. It would have to have its own specific vibe. It would have to be totally different than any of the other standalone films.”
Marvel star Chris Pratt, who plays Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy, topped the Forbes list in 2015, with fellow Marvel star Jennifer Lawrence, who portrays Mystique in the X-Men films, taking the honor the year before.
