Disney issues response to Black Widow lawsuit by Scarlett Johansson
By Ray Ampoloquio July 29, 2021
Black Widow holds an 81% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and broke pandemic box office records.
While this is all well and good, not everything is right with Scarlett Johansson's relationship with Disney.
Her lawsuit states that the Disney+ release of Black Widow was a breach of contract as it impacted Johansson's potential earnings.
Less than a day after the reports of Johansson's lawsuit emerged, Disney issued its own statement.
Considering the success of Black Widow, it's surprising that this lawsuit even came up.
Despite being caught blindsided, Disney does not intend to hold back judging by its statement wording.
With such a public spat between Johansson and Disney, we doubt that Disney would welcome Johansson back to the MCU, regardless of her significance.
It's just unfortunate that Johansson's time in the MCU ended on such a sour note.
