Scarlett Johansson's box-office brawn earned her the honor of the year's top-grossing actress! Johansson landed the coveted title with just two films, Captain America: Civil War and Hail, Caesar! bringing in a combined $1.2 billion in global ticket sales, Forbes reports.
The 34-year-old actress narrowly edged out her Captain America co-stars, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans, whose films earned $1.15 billion a piece.
Johansson's next potential blockbuster could be Ghost in the Shell, which was adapted from a Japanese film franchise. However, the decision to cast the native New Yorker instead of an Asian actress was met with criticism.
