Forbes has just released its World's Highest-Paid Actress list for 2018 and Scarlett Johansson is the top earner, thanks in large part to her unstoppable Marvel alter ego.

She played Black Widow in this year's hit Marvel movie Avengers: Infinity War and will return to the role in the 2019 installment from Walt Disney Co's Marvel Studios. Following her MCU debut in Iron Man 2, Johansson went on to portray Black Widow in The Avengers before teaming up with Captain America in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Johansson's spot can be accredited to her role as Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Scarlett beat out Angelina Jolie, who ranked second with United States dollars 28 million thanks mainly to her upfront pay for Maleficent 2.

Jennifer Aniston is also on the list, making the majority of her money from deals with Emirates Airlines and Aveeno.

Johansson, 33, took in US$40.5 million in pre-tax earnings from June 1, 2017, to June 1, 2018, quadrupling her income from the previous year, according to Forbes' calculations.
