    I see your Tom Hanks; but still wish to punch Colin Hanks squarely upon the face.
    I beg your pardon.

    I'm not making any judgments personally. But I wouldn't say his "stock" is at an all time high. Everyone is tired of seeing him in makeup, he looks like Keith Richards lately and he is fending off accusations about his personal life and behavior.

    I don't at this point in time. I think Will Smith still brings some cache to a movie. Depp is almost a deterrent at the moment.

    Ranking for now, and not their whole careers, because it's more interesting:
    1. Leonardo DiCaprio
    2. Tom Cruise
    3. Johnny Depp
    4. Will Smith
    5. Brad Pitt
    Brad is disinterested. Apart from Deadshot Will seems more preoccupied with his kids. Depp was one of the least profitable actors in 2017, I think the biggest marquee money loser in the world, but you can't be the biggest turd floating in the bowl, and be labeled insignificant. Cruise is still churning out blockbusters, and DiCaprio is sort of the de facto King of Hollywood, right now.

    The MCU has been killing the leveraging power of stars. That peak is in the past. Now, franchises like the MCU (or GoT) matter more to carrying a marquee than a name, and if an actor/actress thinks any identity in that universe is indispensable, look no further than Terence Howard and Edward Norton (or Ed Skrein). Only a few of these stars have real leverage, like Downey Jr. and Chris Hemsworth, and that leverage only applies within the MCU. Outside it, studios know that you can't expect a major return just because a particular name happens to be attached to a project. That used to be how it worked.

    *Edit* Depp would have been the bottom star in 2015. That was the year of Black Mass. I recall that from the article. Meanwhile, Chris Evans had the best ROI of any major star that year in relation to his salary.
