If you are looking to get the most bang for your buck in Hollywood, then you need to talk with Chris Evans. This year, the leading man continued a streak as he was just crowned Hollywood’s Best Actor for the Buck. The actor who plays Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was also joined by co-stars Chris Pratt and Scarlett Johansson on the fiscally responsible list.
When it comes to Evans, the actor is bringing in plenty of money for studios who hire him. The actor brought in an average of $135.80 at the box office for every dollar he was paid. Another one of Marvel’s actors also ranked high on this year’s list. Chris Pratt from Guardians of the Galaxy landed the number two spot as the star raked in $125.40 for every dollar he made.
Following the top spots, the next two rankings are held by some of Hollywood’s most elite starlets. Scarlett Johansson had the third spot with her $88.60 return on her salary. Mila Kunis falls just behind her with a $49.50 return.
Rounding out the fifth spot is Vin Diesel. As the star of Fast & Furious, the actor had a return of $32 for every buck he brought home.
Comprably, it looks like the Marvel Cinematic Universe is one of the more economic franchises in Hollywood. Not only do Evans, Pratt, and Johansson give the most bang for their bucks, there is another star from the franchise on this year’s list. Robert Downey Jr. landed the eighth spot with his return of $18.40.
Next year, the MCU will be tested once again, so its actors will be vying for another spot on Forbes’ list. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be the next film released in the franchise when May 2017 rolls around. Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok will follow in July and November.
Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is written and directed by James Gunn (Slither). The film marks the return of the original Guardians, including Chris Pratt (Jurassic World) as Peter Quill/Star-Lord; Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Gamora; Dave Bautista (Spectre) as Drax; Vin Diesel (Furious 7) as the voice of Groot; Bradley Cooper (American Sniper) as the voice of Rocket; Michael Rooker (Jumper) as Yondu; Karen Gillan (The Big Short) as Nebula; and Sean Gunn (Gilmore Girls) as Kraglin.
