Scarlett Johansson revealed that she is open to doing more projects with Disney now that they have settled the Black Widow lawsuit. After the release of the Marvel movie, news of the leading star suing Disney surfaced.
She sued the company for its hybrid rollout of releasing the movie in theatres as well as on Disney+ which caused her to lose earnings. The company decided that would be best as they dropped the movie simultaneously on the streaming platform with Premier Access.
Fans and people from the industry talked about the matter and surprisingly, Disney’s public comments about the matter were seen as too harsh. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige was reportedly frustrated with the situation as many actors supported the actress’ stance. This included Marvel cast member, Elizabeth Olsen along with Jamie Lee Curtis and many others.
This also helped other stars stand up to the controversial hybrid model like Emma Stone in relation to the live-action Cruella. Now, fortunately, both parties have found a middle ground. The details of the settlement have not been made public but they have chosen to move forward.
Scarlett revealed in a statement to THR that she is happy that the lawsuit was resolved. She added that she is excited to team up with Disney again in the future. Alan Bergman, Disney’s chairman also echoed the actress’ sentiments in his comments. He cited that Disney’s Tower of Terror film will be the next collaboration with Scarlett.
Johansson: âI am happy to have resolved our differences with Disney,â stated Johansson. âIâm incredibly proud of the work weâve done together over the years and have greatly enjoyed my creative relationship with the team. I look forward to continuing our collaboration in years to come.â
It is obvious that both Disney and Scarlett wanted to diffuse the situation which was publicized. Many might be wondering if the pursuits include a potential return to MCU. Natasha Romanoff is already dead in the Sacred Timeline but as Marvel Studios’ is exploring the multiverse does open opportunities for her return.
