In both second and third place, are Avengers stars, Chris Hemsworth and Robert Downey Jr. respectively.

Dwayne Johnson arriving at the premiere of Warner Bros. Once a former professional wrestler, and also a very proliferous actor, Dwayne Johnson has starred in several movies like "Jumanji: Welcome to The Jungle", "Baywatch" as well as the newly released "Fast and the Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw'". Plus, he stars on HBO's ballers and earns a reported $700,000 per episode. Johnson has landed a pay formula as close to the famed twenty-twenty deal of yore as any star can get these days. Hemsworth had the added benefit of also starring in Men In Black: International.

From left: Jackie Chan ($58 million), Bradley Cooper ($57 million), and Adam Sandler ($57 million) follow Kumar on the list. He was placed second in the last two years.

While Johnson's deal is the biggest in the business right now, he's not the only one with a lucrative deal.

Although the movie went on to become the highest-grossing movie of all time, collecting over 2 billion in ticket sales, Chris who played Thor, took in $76.4 million, while Iron Man actor Robert earned $66 million, the report said. The figures are based on data from Nielsen, ComScore, Box Office Mojo and IMDB, as well as interviews with industry sources.

Forbes added that Robert Downey Jr.is getting $20 million upfront and almost 8% of the pool for his role as Iron Man. Downey, however, does not feature on the new list.
