    In terms of shear success as blockbuster stars are we talking?

    Downey Jnr
    Chris Pratt
    Tom Cruise
    Chris Evans

    Maybe Scarlett Johanson and Chris Helmsworth in the running as well? maybe Christian Bale if you extend things a little further back?

    Cruise, Denzel, Arnold, DDL, and...i want to put a chick on there..but i feel like the female actresess don't have as much longevity in the game..so hard to pick one. At one time i would have said Jolie, Sandra Bullock, or Anne Hathaway...but ill just go with Julia Roberts

    Wait, wait, wait. What generation are we talking here?

    Arnie, Sly, Meryl Streep, etc are pretty old. Then there are the younger actors like Joseph Gordon Levitt, Shia, etc, and then the ones in between like Brad Pitt and Leo.

    So which generation?

    Otherwise this thread doesn’t work.

    In terms of blockbuster success recently it would kind of have to be wouldn't it? I do think there is more "star power" behind Marvel than say Starwars as well.

    The Rock is bigger than all of those you mentioned except maybe Tom Cruise based off of your criteria.

    Honestly though I think its questionable putting him as the main draw for the Fast and Furious films, maybe the last one but prior to that he was a supporting role.

    He certainly appears in a lot of blockbusters which obviously helps his overall numbers.

    He has been one of the main draws since FF6, as much as Evans or Downey have been for Avengers. He has also had more individual blockbusters than they have as well as his own hit TV show.

    Arnold, Pitt, Leo, Clooney most likely



    Depp and Jolie may deserve a shoutout too

    Anyone who doesn’t put at least 2 women on their Rushmore is a sexist man pig.

    I would say Downey Jnr has clearly been lead or co load in every Marvel film he's been in bar Spiderman Homecoming, I wouldn't say that of Johnson until the last film.
