Black Widow collection

Black Widow starring Scarlett Johansson, was set to be released on May 1, 2020. Still, due to the unfortunate situation of the COVID-19 pandemic, the movie finally got the chance to be released in theatres on July 9, 2021.

The movie’s events fit between the timeline of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. It was the first phase 4 movie as part of the new timeline launched by the Marvel studios.

The movie earned $80 million on the opening weekend with the additional income of $60 million ok Disney+. However, releasing the film on this OTT platform turned out to be a massive mistake for the producers. Not only did the film have to face an enormous loss as its second-weekend earnings dropped by 68%, but the movie was also reported to be the most pirated film of the pandemic era.

Due to this, the feud between the Black Widow actress and Disney+ became public as the actress sued the platform for realizing it as it made piracy easier.

The angry assassin sued Disney+ for losing her film due to the apparent breach of contract from the opposite side. The suit was finally settled with the settlement claim coming from Disney+.

The OTT platform had to pay $200 Million to compensate for all the losses and inconvenience their platform had caused to the film and the actors present in it.

Albeit, coming to a reluctant truce, this whole case has once again come to public knowledge. According to the sources, Disney+ had lost around $600 million due to the film getting pirated over 20 million times.

The Johansson starrer film had to go through a massive loss due to the film’s release on Disney+, and the platform itself has to handle this massive amount of lost revenue.
