The list for 2019 doesn't look as different from the 2018 list. Though George Clooney was last year's top earner, he fell behind some of the actors from the very popular MCU. The list includes the timeline from June 2018 to June 2019, during which the Marvel film Avengers: Endgame became the highest-grossing movie of all time with $2.796 billion at the box-office. With a starting salary of $35 million, these leading men are building a serious stash of cash from their hard work on both the big screen and small screen. And in some cases, even off-screen.
