Scarlett Johansson is undoubtedly one of the most popular and veteran actresses in all of Hollywood, having acted in films such as Lost In Translation, Marriage Story and others.
Her true claim to fame came as the role of Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Unfortunately for Johansson, her film Black Widow’s release became a subject of controversy.
Scarlet Johansson recently sued Disney for streaming Black Widow on claims that the hybrid streaming and theater release of the film has cost her an exorbitant amount of money and is said to have lost over 50 million dollars due to the entire ordeal
While speaking to Variety, Disney lawyer Daniel Petrocelli issued a rather scathing statement on Scarlett Johansson’s lawsuit, stating that it is nothing more than an orchestrated PR stunt.
“It is obvious that this is a highly orchestrated PR campaign to achieve an outcome that is not obtainable in the lawsuit. No amount of public pressure can change or obscure the explicit contractual commitments. The written contract is clear as a bell.”
At this point in time, it is not known just how messy the case between Disney and Scarlet Johansson can turn out to be. We will keep you updated on this ongoing case.
