Scarlett Johansson has had a good year at the box office. Between a top role as the Black Widow in blockbuster hit Captain America: Civil War, which grossed over $1.15 billion worldwide, plus an ensemble part in the much less commercial Hail, Caesar!, Johansson is 2016’s top-grossing actor, bringing in $1.2 billion at global ticketing booths.
She narrowly edges costars Chris Evans ($1.15 billion worldwide), who plays the titular character in Marvel’s Captain America series, and Robert Downey Jr., otherwise known as Iron Man. The pair tie for second with $1.15 billion grossed worldwide. All three have Captain America: Civil War to thank for their totals; it became the top-grossing movie of the year.
