Scarlett Johansson Sues Disney for Streaming ‘Black Widow’

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Scarlett Johansson Sues Disney for Streaming ‘Black Widow’” – below is their description.

Two-time Academy Award nominee Scarlett Johansson sued Walt Disney Co., claiming the biggest entertainment company in the world broke its promise to release her latest film “Black Widow” only in movie theaters when it made it available for streaming on the Disney+ video service.

Disney wanted to draw audiences away from movie theaters to its own streaming service to generate revenue, grow subscribers and to devalue Johansson’s contract, the actress said in a complaint filed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Disney fired back aggressively calling Johansson’s complaint “sad and distressing in its callous disregard for the horrific and prolonged global effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.” The company said it fully complied with Johansson’s contract and she already earned $20 million from the film.
