Scarlett Johansson previously 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.
It was also said that Scarlett Johansson never thought she would have to sue Disney over the release of Black Widow. Her lawsuit was dismissed as an orchestrated PR stunt as well.
Disney would respond to Scarlett Johansson’s lawsuit with a very nasty accusation. Johansson’s lawyer then fired back at Disney’s slander, stating that it was nothing more than a misogynistic attack on Johansson.
Ultimately, her lawsuit was settled before it went to trial and Johansson even released a statement regarding the matter. Johansson also hoped her trial would have a positive effect on the industry as a whole.
While speaking with AP, Scarlett Johansson reflected on the messy lawsuit against Disney. The actress considers her decision to pursue the lawsuit an act of courage as she felt she stood up for herself.
”It’s important in general to know your own worth and stand up yourself.”
We will have to wait and see what is next in store for Scarlett Johansson now that her lawsuit with Disney has finally come to an end. It also remains to be seen whether her lawsuit truly will have a positive impact on the industry or not.
