BOX OFFICE: Dwayne Johnson Beats Robert Downey Jr. As 2013's Highest Grossing Actor
Robert Downey Jr. only had to star in one movie (Iron Man 3) this year to have brought in the second highest amount at the worldwide box office, but G.I. Joe: Retaliation star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has just pipped him to the post to take the top spot. So, how long until Marvel hire him?
Forbes have published a list of 2013's highest grossing actors at the worldwide box office. This doesn't refer to how much they personally made (although, as you may have already guessed, that IS a list which was topped by Robert Downey Jr.), but instead shows how much the films they starred in earned in total. As you can see, former WWE Superstar Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson just managed to beat the Iron Man 3 star, cementing his position in Hollywood as a major draw. Yes, he starred in a total of five pictures, but this is still an amazing result for the actor. Fans have been rooting for him to take on a role in a superhero movie for a while now, and it's news like this which will put him squarely in the sights of a studio like Marvel!
