According to Forbes, the Black Widow star earned $56 million between June 1, 2018 and June 1, 2019.

Part of that includes her fee for signing up for a solo Marvel movie and it also includes the $35million cut she got from the success of Endgame.

The Top 10 list looks a little different form last year’s list with Emma Stone, Jennifer Lawrence and Angelina Jolie knocked out of the running and with more TV stars coming in to rake in the big bucks.
