Earlier in 2021, Disney and The 37-year-old actress were embroiled in a legal battle.
Disney is also the owner of Marvel Studios, the company behind the marvel cinematic universe.
On July 9, 2021, the Black Widow movie was released, but the film suffered a huge loss when the movie was released on Disney+ as it became easy for the pirates to get to the film.
After the movie’s release on the streaming platform, Johansson had sued Disney, saying its hybrid release strategy for Black Widow, the first standalone movie on the superhero and probably last starring her, breached the terms of her contract. The lawsuit further claimed that the move allowed the studio to boost Disney+ subscriptions while also saving on box office bonuses that Johansson is rightfully due to.
“Disney intentionally induced Marvel’s breach of the agreement, without justification, to prevent Ms. Johansson from realizing the full benefit of her bargain with Marvel,” the lawsuit read.
