Scarlett Johansson has topped Forbes' list of the best grossing Hollywood box office stars in 2016. The bulk of that, $1.15 billion, came from "Captain America: Civil War", in which Johansson plays the Black Widow.
However, animated movies are not considered on the list as the actors are only lending their voices and not acting in the movie. These included everything from Captain America: Civil War to Coen Brothers' Hail Ceaser!
Her role as Black Widow was the real money maker, though; Captain America: Civil War was the highest grossing film of 2016.
Forbes, which just released its list of the top-grossing actors of 2016 based on worldwide ticket sales figures available as of December 27, reports that Johansson's movies brought in $1.2 billion in global sales.

She also starred in fantasy film drama A Monster Calls and alongside Tom Hanks in Inferno. In fact, the only actor without a comic to thank for her total is Star Wars' Felicity Jones.
In June, Scarlett has already cemented her place in the Hollywood history as the highest grossing actress, when Box Office Mojo reported that movies featuring the star grossed $3.3 billion in domestic box office revenue. If Rogue One had been released earlier in 2016, Felicity would have probably been higher up on the list! Suicide Squad was panned by critics but still played well at the multiplexes, where it grossed $745.6 million worldwide.
Stars of the DC Comics film "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" - No. 6 in this year's box office, with $873.3 million - appeared in fifth place (Amy Adams, 42, as Lois Lane, abetted by "Arrival"), sixth place (Ben Affleck, 44, as Batman, plus "The Accountant") and seventh place (Henry Cavill, 33, as Superman). Combined with a role in The Legend of Tarzan, these blockbusters account for her impressive $1.1 billion total.
Forbes uses the annual ticket sales of each actors' films to calculate their ranking.
