Chris Hemsworth could be called a Thor loser as he came second after raking-in just under $63 million across the same period, while fellow Marvel actor Robert Downey Jr was hot on his heels with a total pay packet of $54.4 million. Behind them, the top five is rounded out by Bollywood star Akshay Kumar ($65 million) and Jackie Chan ($58 million), whose acting profits are augmented by his own line of movie theaters. Though Bradley Cooper ($57 million) wasn't able to take home an Oscar for A Star Is Born, he did make enough money on it to land at the no. 6 spot along with Netflix superstar Adam Sandler (also $57 million).

Chris Evans and Paul Rudd, two more famous faces from the Marvel universe, also made the cut.
