BBC News published this video item, entitled “Scarlett Johansson sues Disney over streaming of Black Widow – BBC News” – below is their description.

Scarlett Johansson is suing Disney for streaming her superhero film Black Widow at the same time as its cinema release.

The movie set a box office record for a pandemic release, grossing $218m (£157m) in its first weekend.

But box office receipts then fell sharply and Ms Johansson argues she was deprived of potential earnings.

Disney said it had “fully complied” with her contract and that her case had “no merit whatsoever”.
