Scarlett Johansson Vs. Disney: the legal battle gets complicated

In her complaint for breach of contract, and with which she asks for compensation of 50 million dollars, Scarlett Johansson alleges her contract was broken when they premiered Black Widow on Disney +. It should be clarified that the complaint was originally against Marvel and not against Disney.

The legal team of Scarlett argues that it was Disney and not Marvel, the one that finally decided to simultaneously launch the film on Disney +, so it was Disney, not Marvel, that violated the agreement that was had with the actress.

Her attorneys contend that the lawsuit for Johansson is directed at Disney and therefore there is no mandate for private arbitration.

The actress earns bonuses when Black Widow reaches certain box office performance markers and accuses Disney of not having the film exclusively in theaters because it “saw an opportunity to promote its platform”.

The contract between the actress and the studios stipulated that Black Widow was to premiere on “no less than 1,500 screens.”

“Marvel kept its promise. After changing the original release date of May 2020 several times, including at Johansson’s request, the film finally debuted on July 9, 2021 on more than 30,000 screens,” the Disney team alleges in their court motion.
