    "Not Wanting to Upset His Talent": Scarlett Johansson's Lawsuit Shakes Marvel and Disney!

    When Scarlett Johansson, our beloved Black Widow, slings a legal web, it's bound to entangle some big names. Her lawsuit against Disney alleging a breach of contract has not only shaken the industry but has left Marvel Studios' President Kevin Feige feeling "angry and embarrassed."

    "He's angry and embarrassed," Belloni reveals. “He lobbied Disney against the day-and-date plan for Black Widow, preferring the big screen exclusivity and not wanting to upset his talent.”

    Scarlett's Stand: A Breach of Contract?

    Scarlett Johansson's stand against the media giant is all about dollars and respect. A substantial chunk of her salary depended on "Black Widow's" box office performance. Disney's decision to release the film in theaters and on Disney Premier Access without renegotiating her contract allegedly caused her to miss out on over $50 million in pay.

    In a sharp retort, Disney claimed that it "fully complied with Ms. Johansson's contract," labeling the lawsuit as "sad and distressing in its callous disregard" for the COVID-19 pandemic.

    But the war of words didn't stop Johansson's team from arguing that Disney's streaming move cost their client dearly, while Disney argued that Premier Access "significantly enhanced her ability to earn additional compensation on top of the $20M she has received to date."
