The highest grossing actors of 2014 all have something in common: tights and a penchant for saving the world.

Superheroes dominated the global box office in 2014. And these are the top earners. Keep in mind, this is how much money their films brought, not how much pocket cash went to the actors themselves.

Number 3: Scarlett Johansson (Video via ABC)

“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” - $714 million

“Lucy” - $458 million

“Chef” - $45 million

“Under the Skin” - $5 million

Total: $1.22 billion

Number 2: Chris Pratt (Video via Marvel

“Guardians of The Galaxy” - $772 million

“The Lego Movie” - $468 million

Number 1: Jennifer Lawrence (Video via NBC / "The Tonight Show")

“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1” - $669 million

“X-Men Days of Future Past” - $746 million

If there was a formula to becoming the highest earning actor in 2014, JLaw nailed it. Star in a superhero movie and a young adult novel adaptation.
